The Last Men's Book You'll Ever Need
David Moore
Broadman & Holman, April 2008

Guys might hate asking for directions, but they certainly won’t resist the guidance found in The Last Men’s Book You’ll Ever Need. Author David Moore combines his Bible scholar background with a humorous Dave Barry-esque style of writing that makes sensitive subjects like sexual temptation, love of money, busy-ness, and “the shrinking American soul” much easier to ponder.

Is God Calling Me?
Jeff Iorg
Broadman & Holman, May 2008

It’s the foundational question that must be answered by anyone considering entry into ministry leadership and then revisited regularly over a lifetime. Writing to a student and young adult audience—although applicable to leaders of all ages—Iorg declares the purpose of his brief, yet powerful book: “God is calling out a new generation of kingdom leaders who will accelerate the fulfillment of the Great Commission in this generation. My goal is to cut to the heart of the matter and give you tools to work through the call process.”
