The Logos Free Book of the Month for April 2022 is by Harold L. Senkbeil; Lucas V. Woodford, Pastoral Leadership: For the Care of Souls (Lexham Press, 2021). This book is part of Lexham’s Ministry Guide series. Based on a sound theological framework, Senkbeil and Woodford present a set of practical tools for church leadership and strategy. Calling on their vast experience, they encourage pastors to protect, guide, and feed their flock as Jesus would, bridging the eternal wisdom of the word of God with the everyday practicality of hands-on leadership.
