Effective church leadership needs both vision and expertise. It needs praxis—putting theory into practice. Books from IVP Praxis offer sound biblical and theological foundations for ministry in the real world. These books are more than a "how-to"—they're also the "why to," attending to the inner life of the leader as well as the outer work of ministry. If you are called to ministry, let IVP Praxis books serve as your companions as you equip God's people for life in the kingdom.
