The five-fold plan of Ephesians 4:11–16 is a revolutionary approach to organizational leadership. When people use their apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic, teaching, and pastoral gifts while working together under the Holy Spirit’s guidance, any organization they are involved in—whether a business, a church, or even a small committee—can tap into supernatural resources more powerful than they can imagine, leading to success that is potentially unlimited. Could your organization enjoy that kind of success? Read this practical guide to making it happen.

“I’m so sorry, but we have to let you go.” These words cause panic, depression, and pessimism, while a successful job search requires focus, effective goal setting, and a solid action plan. In I Am An Unemployed Christian… Now What Do I Do?, a corporate executive and leadership coach shares a comprehensive, step-by-step workbook that provides practical tools for methodically reestablishing employment. Wayne L. Anderson, Ken Brown and Thomas H. Cross rely on their experiences to teach you how to successfully search for a job and learn more about yourself in the process. Through Anderson’s methods job seekers will gain an understanding of personal values; realize their strengths, weaknesses, and skills; and learn interview mechanics. Brown and Cross provide the spiritual foundation you will need to achieve the success you desire. The techniques offered in I Am An Unemployed Christian… Now What Do I Do? will help readers identify and act on positions in visible and hidden job markets, build self-esteem, sell their skills and strengths in an interview, and ultimately, land a dream job.
“‘No! Not another book on leadership!’ That was my first reaction as I received the manuscript of this book. Upon careful reading, I came to realize that Dr. Enlow has artistically captured the essence of leading by influence and has presented it in a clear and colorful way. As a veteran leader, Dr. Enlow speaks from vast experience, but it is not merely subjective anecdotal experience. The book is firmly rooted in serious and current research. As I meet leaders from all over the globe, I am no longer hesitant what to recommend them to read.”
—Riad Kassis, director of Langham Scholars Ministry; international director of the International Council for Evangelical Theological Education
“This book under-promises and over-delivers with a powerful palette of leadership wisdom. But drop everything—right now—and read the warning in the last chapter on doxological leadership. … I am recommending this book to all my clients—and I will likely reread this gem once a year. It’s that important.”
—John Pearson, consultant (www.johnpearsonassociates.com) and author of Mastering the Management Buckets
The book teaches employers how to run a “tight ship”—a productive, efficient, profitable business consisting of employees who make their best efforts—without violating the discrimination laws. Utilizing legal sources, practical tips, and, most interestingly, biblical sources, the book helps employers prevent discrimination in the workplace and reduce the number and dollar amount of lawsuits brought by employees against employers. It is an excellent guide not only for employers but also for employees and business students, teaching them how to live a personal life and work life that no employer would discriminate against.
The book provides excellent, innovative, practical tips on how to prevent race discrimination, gender discrimination, age discrimination, disability discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, and some other types of discrimination in the workplace. The book answers, or tries to answer, some of the most perplexing questions in human resource management today: Should employers think about the race and skin color of their employees, or should employers be race-blind and color-blind? Should employers be more lenient with aging and disabled employees than with other employees, or treat everyone the same? Are laws that protect gays from discrimination in the workplace consistent with the Bible? How does a CEO’s personal spending habits affect employees’ attitudes towards the company? Should employers treat men and women differently, or the same? How do topics such as dating, sex, domestic violence, marriage, and pregnancy impact employer-employee relations? When a law is unfair to an employer, what can the employer do about it? What can employers do to reduce legal expenses? This book answers, or tries to answer, these important questions.
