Praise for IVP Praxis
"When God is at work, I want in on it. That's why I'm excited about IVP's new Praxis line. These books are going to help pastors take their ministry to the next level. Don't miss out on this!"
—Mark Batterson, Lead Pastor, National Community Church, Washington, DC
"In a world where the emperors of church and state wear no clothes, and their ministers and minions keep up the pretense, an increasing number of books give us the child-in-the-crowd’s cry of 'He’s wearing nothing.' But seldom are we given any new clothes to wear. And the person to whom they belong and fit is nowhere to be found. Praxis changes all that. Each author is a master tailor who offers customized attire for real-world, rubber-hits-the-road ministry and mission."
—Leonard Sweet, best-selling author and professor (Drew University, George Fox University), and chief contributor to sermons.com.
