At the upcoming PLNTD Conference in Nashville, we are focusing on Gospel-Driven Leadership. We want to press into how the gospel shapes the leader, and out of that flowing a gospel-centered philosophy of leadership. When I first discovered the new book by Paul Tripp, Dangerous Calling: Confronting the Unique Challenges of Pastoral Ministry, I thought to myself, “I need to get this book into the hands of as many church leaders as possible.”

Thankfully, Crossway has been generous enough to give a FREE copy to everyone who attends the Gospel-Driven Leadership Conference. This book, I believe, will be one of the most significant contributions to pastoral leadership in years. Watch the video below and check out some of the blurbs from evangelical leaders across the country.

“This book is ‘good’ in the same way that heart surgery is good. It’s painful and scary and as you read it you’ll be tempted to run away from the truth it contains. But it just might save your life. Pastors need this book. I know I really needed it. It challenged me and rebuked me even as it gave me hope and fresh faith in God for pastoral ministry.”
-Joshua Harris, Senior Pastor, Covenant Life Church, Gaithersburg, Maryland; author, Dug Down Deep

Gospel-centered and grace saturated to the core, Dangerous Calling is a must read for any pastor or pastor in training who needs to be encouraged by the reminder that Jesus came to do for us what we could never do for ourselves or others.”
-Tullian Tchividjian, Pastor, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church; author, Jesus + Nothing = Everything

Dangerous Calling is a dangerous book to read. It is also a book every person in ministry should read. It will cut you to the heart and bring massive conviction if you read it with a humility and ask God to expose sins deeply hidden in your soul. It cuts, but it also provides biblical remedies for healing. I would love to put this book in the hand of every seminarian who walks on my campus.”
-Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Pastoral ministry is a dangerous calling, and this is a dangerous book. It will not leave you unchanged. Pastors need pastors, and by God’s grace, every page of this book will minister to your heart, your marriage, your family, and the people you serve—in ways you never thought you needed it. This book digs down into the inner recesses of our hearts to reveal our greatest idols and point to our greatest needs. ”
-Burk Parsons, Associate Pastor, Saint Andrew’s Chapel, Sanford, Florida; editor, Tabletalk magazine
