"Well, this is it. Caesar had his Rubicon. What do Bible college presidents have? A Rubik's Cube?"

Tom Collins, mild-mannered president of a dwindling southern Bible college, becomes a target when a drunk prankster swaps his campus's American flag with the Christian one, and Dr. Tom refuses to "fix" the situation. Big media, exuberant students, petty enemies, and pretty secretaries all play a part in this happy-go-lucky satire for the twenty-first century.

Readers of PG Wodehouse's Leave It to Psmith and Christopher Buckley's Thank You for Smoking will appreciate this lighthearted new satirical novel from Douglas Wilson, author of the award-winning Evangellyfish (Best Fiction of 2013, Christianity Today).

"Rourke spun around and stomped out the door. Bradford followed him out. "Don't you agree? We really need to do our part to reduce this epidemic of illicit banging in the evangelical world."

Chad Lester's kingdom is found in the Midwest. His voice crawls over the airwaves, his books are read by millions (before he reads them), and thousands ride the escalators into the sanctuary every Sunday. And Saturday. And Wednesday, too. He is the head pastor of Camel Creek—a CEO of Soul. And souls come cheap, so he has no overhead.

When Lester is (falsely) accused of molesting a young male counselee, his universe begins to crumble. He is a sexual predator, yes. But strictly straight (and deeply offended that anyone would suggest otherwise). Detectives, reporters, assistant pastors, and old lovers and pay-offs all come out to play.

John Mitchell is also a pastor, but he has no kingdom to speak of—only smalltime choir feuds. He is thrilled at the great man's fall, but his joy quickly fades when the imploding Lester calls him—and a lover or two—for help. How low can grace go? Whores, thieves, and junkies, sure. But pastors?

It's election season—America's most lucrative sport—and there are no rules.

When climate scientist Dr. Helen Gardner accidentally reads an email from the International Task Force on Climate Change which proves that global warming is a lucrative scam, she's shocked and horrified.

But that's nothing compared to how she feels the next day when her boss (the head of the Task Force) tries to have her killed.

Helen goes into hiding with the help of her neighbor, a "fundy" Bible college professor named Cody, and an anti-eco-activist lumberjack-writer.

But Helen's scandal isn't the only headline floating to the surface: the Democrat presidential candidate gets career-changing news; his running mate hits rock bottom after years of infidelity; the current Republican VP's past sins won't stay hidden forever.

And Cody is about to uncover some dirt of his own.

Great book packed with nuggets of biblical and practical wisdom.

A great book packed with nuggets of biblical and practical wisdom. The first chapter spends time discussing concepts from Shakespeare that were meant to give understanding to the content of the book. I feel this was unnecessary - the book's wisdom stood on its own. Otherwise, it was an excellent book that we will be using for leadership development at our church going forward.

Practical Application, finally!

The author's introduction says it all - our parental toolbelts are fashioned after the best systematic theology, yet lacking in good tools.

Super helpful!

A much needed wrestling with of the topic that encouraged my soul

A welcome guide in unwelcoming times….

Naselli’s book is a breath of fresh air in an era of “post-scamdemic” vitriol. Never has reading God’s Word well been of more importance for Americans than our current age. Brother Naselli offers wise guidance to the Church on what sort of reading habits are more likely to bear fruit than others. Thank you, Canon Press, for publishing this treasure.

The Things of Earth: Treasuring God by Enjoying His Gifts (2nd Ed)

I liked the title. It seems to fit the content.

Joe did a good job explaining his assessment and solution for leadership with men. The beginning starts out a bit slow and difficult to really grab hold of the plot, but as you keep reading it starts to fit in place.

Perfect title for the commentary at hand.

Doug does a very good job explaining how he came to the understanding of text as he goes through the entire book line by line.

Single and Satisfied: A Grace-Filled Calling for the Unmarried Woman

SUPER BOOK!

I have read and reread this several times. I have also heard Dr. Rigney speak on it too. This book is a MUST read for all who are in leadership. But it is also a MUST read for all church members, parents, teachers, and students. So basically everyone should read this. Our men at our church are reading it this summer and I expect it will have a great impact on our church. Thank you for the great book.

Very fitting and relevant to the context

I thoroughly enjoyed this book on the app so I purchased it. I've been giving it away as a gift to friends that have boys

Insightful book

I appreciate Joe Rigney’s perspective on the “both/and” of this topic.

Loved it. Biblical and practical. Would highly recommend!

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

Necessary Call to Faithful Leadership

I have passed this out to all my elders, many future elders, and even led a local group of automotive dealership leaders through this book.
If only someone could get a copy of this into every pastor, businessman, and politican, we would turn this sinking ship of a nation around.

Great Book

We bought for all the elders at our church, and then bought another 20 copies for our wives and other people in the church.

Biblical, practical, and addresses our current situation.

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

One of the Most Important Books on Christian Leadership

I'm going to be recommending this book to a lot of pastors, fathers, and Christian leaders. Biblical, insightful, and impactful.

A Must Read for Church Leadership

This book is worthy of a formal review. But for this purpose, I will only say that this is a must read for any in church leadership. I intend to take my elders and deacons through it for years to come.

Practically though, anyone I believe would benefit from the simple and practical lessons communicated in classic Rigney style.

Read and enjoy and read again.

ND Wilson spins a fascinating story in league with the fantasy greats. It's a series I can feel good about handing to my kids, highly recommend!

Insightful and instructive!

Every Christian leader must read this book! From fathers in the home to pastoral leaders, Rigney’s work provides insight into the methods of sabotage that faithful leaders will encounter. In addition to exposing the problems, Rigney provides solutions and guidance to help leaders remain calm, focused, and resolved to lead the way God has called.

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

Do yourself a favor and pick this book up!

I absolutely love this book! My reading life was changed for the better a few years ago after reading Adler's How to Read a Book and I was actually close to giving it a reread when this came out. After reading this, I am convinced that this is a better read, especially as a Christian, and it sums up in a more succinct way what Adler was communicating. I also think it gives more helpful and practical advice for the average reader that will help them jumpstart their love of reading or will strengthen the joy the seasoned reader has.

I recommend this to anyone. I read portions of it aloud to my wife and kids and we had great discussions on how to build our reading skills and get more out of our time in good books and more importantly the Bible.

Godly, Manly Leadership is Needed

This book is excellent! We need Godly, manly leadership now more than ever and this book will help us as men to uncover the things that weigh us down and hinder us from being able to fulfill what God has for us as men.

My Wife Loved it!

I bought this for my wife for Mother's Day and she has thoroughly enjoyed it. Every so often she shared snippets from the book (as she was reading it) and expressed gratitude for the wisdom she learned from it. She also reflected on the grace that God showed her through our years as parents and realized that today is always a good day to learn something new on parenting by God's promises. We're both grateful for the way that God uses others to sharpen us through good books. Thank you Rachel!
