Teaching Ministry by Example
Living Legacy by Jim Downing captivated my interest from the very first page. From cover to cover the book contains wisdom and Biblical guidance for anyone in ministry. Each page is rich with knowledge- I seized every free moment to read the book and finished it in just a few days.
My reaction to Living Legacy surprised me, because I’m not a fan of historical books. Yet I looked at the front cover and thought “Those people look exactly like my grandparents!” I started reading the book and thought “My Grandpa was there…I remember when he told me about that.” I was inspired to continue reading with the intent to learn about an earlier generation and what I discovered was a guide for future generations.
I found the book interesting and helpful as I am leading women in an online Bible study. The book details a structured and objective oriented plan for ministry based upon the success of the Navigators. Written by a 94 year old man, I found the author very articulate, intelligent and spirit driven towards the goal of teaching others in ministry by example.
While the ending was a bit saturated with historical trivia, the bulk of the book was useful for my ministry objectives. I recommend Living Legacy as witness to leading others in Christian ministry and developing spiritual maturity in others.
