DeaR mINIsTRY LeaDeR, Welcome to The Annual Catalog, 2013 edition. When InterVarsity Press opened its doors in 1947, the publishing vision spoke of introducing ideas that engage the culture and lead the church. As you browse through these pages, you will recognize that same commitment in every title. Youll also find a lot of extras that should be of interest to you. Whether its a vision statement on leadership development in the church (page 10), an introduction to a great new Bible study series (page 15), breaking news on IVPs acquisition of Biblica Books (page 37) or an insiders view of editing a Bible dictionary (page 57)we did our best to make this catalog worth your while! We also want to introduce you to our imprints as a way to help you find the titles most useful to you. At the core of each of these imprints is IVPs desire to equip and encourage leaders to grow in their knowledge and expression of faith. On the opposite page youll find a description of each imprint and its area of focus. Throughout the catalog youll see miniature logos next to the IsBns of each title. Hopefully this gives you a bit more insight into the style and level of writing on the title you are considering. Within these pages, you will find inspiration, resources and solutions for serving the church and reaching the world. Browse seriously!

leadership

Lets Redefine ReadinessMany [ministry] protgs who attend seminary as their sole preparation end up stumbling around the church upon graduation and battling confusion and frustration. Why? Becaue they initially believe theyve been properly prepared, trained and equipped for the demands ahead, but they soon realize its not true. In actuality they were, more often than not, only given information instead of personalized and intentional development. We must join together to shift our paradigms on what it looks like to train and develop ministers, church planters, social entrepreneurs and other spiritual leaders. Our current system does a disservice to protgs when we tell them (or even imply to them) that education is enough, or that its the primary path. We all know life doesnt happen in a classroomit happens far beyond those walls. And its only outside those walls that a more holistic process of leadership development is even possible.from Protg978-0-8308-3823-3, $16.00 $12.80

ProtgIn this new book, steve saccone draws on over a decade of consulting experience to instruct freshman and veteran ministers in a new approach to leadership development. Protg is your chance to look again at the leadership gap and see not an intractable generational problem but a once-in-a-generation opportunity for church renewal.

steve saccone is director of leadership development at The Highway Community in the san Francisco Bay Area, where he trains and develops emerging leaders, staff and volunteers. He also founded and directed the Protg Program, a global leadership experience for future entrepreneurs, church planters and spiritual leaders. He is the author of Relational Intelligence.

Our church had Steve consult with us and we modeled our intern program based on Steves ideas. What you will read in this book has proven to be extremely effective. . . . This is birthed and written from the front lines.Dan kimball, author of They Like Jesus but Not the Church

CREATING A MISSIONAL CULTURE

EQUIPPING THE CHURCH for the SAKE OF THE WORLD

The First Law of Church Planting978-0-8308-3653-6, $16.00 $12.80

Through much reflection, reading and many sleepless nights, Ive discovered that effective church planting requires thinking about the culture of the congregation. More than a strategy, vision or plan, the unseen culture of a church powerfully shapes its ability to grow, mature and live missionally. . . . Like gravity, the culture of a congregation can either pull people down to their base instincts or lift people up to their sacred potential. We create culture, and culture re-creates us. If we want to create a missional culture in the congregations we serve, we need to understand how the different elements of culture work. The language we live in, the artifacts that we make use of, the rituals we engage in, our approach to ethics, the institutions we are a part of and the narratives we inhabit have the power to shape our lives profoun
