Some months ago I had the privilege of reading the manuscript of Neil Cole's latest book, "Journeys to Significance." I have found myself thinking back to it and applying its principles on numerous occasions since then.
For a long time, I have prayed, "Lord, help me to finish life well." Too many Christians start their spiritual journey with enthusiam but in the latter years of their lives lose their passion and their focus on the Kingdom. Neil suggests that finishing well isn't something that happens accidentally, but is a decision we choose to make on a daily basis.
This book applies lessons from the journeys and life of the apostle Paul to demonstrate the development of an effective leader. Paul became more and more influential as he moved through different stages of leadership. His effectiveness increased as he learned from experience. Paul changed the world he lived in; his influence continues today.
Neil is uniquely qualified to write on this subject both from his own extensive studies on the life of Paul, and as one who has enormous influence that extends far beyond the organic/simple church world.
Do you want to make an impact on our world? Do you long to influence this world for the Kingdom of God? I highly recommend this book as one that teaches the principles that will help you to do so.
