#GC2012 Book Study for Lent

February 17th, 2012

Jeremy Smith of Hacking Christianity is hosting an online book study of the five books in the Adaptive Leadership Series, a collection of books providing provocative assessments of The United Methodist Church's Call to Action. Each Thursday, Smith is starting a discussion of the week's book that readers and fellow bloggers can respond to and/or pose questions for one another about the book. The following Tuesday, bloggers can link up their own blog posts responding to the book.

Read more about the book study at Hacking Christianity, and get a taste of each book in the series by checking out the excerpts posted in the Adaptive Leadership Series bin here on Ministry Matters.
