By providing the Healthy Church Toolbox of recommended resources, IFCA International does not mean to imply wholehearted endorsement of every jot and tittle, nuance and idiom posed by a given author or organization. In general each resource has been selected by virtue of its overall usefulness in the category wherein it has been place.
The ONE and ONLY book we do wholeheartedly endorse in its entirety, without reservation, is the very - all sufficient - Word of God.
Teach Them to Pray: Cultivating God-Dependency in Your Church
by Paul Tautges, Foreword by Jerry Bridges
Paul Tautges, a member of IFCA , has served Immanuel Bible Church in Sheboygan, Wisconsin as pastor-teacher since 1992. His preaching and teaching ministry takes him overseas for the equipping of national pastors for the work of church-based ministry. He is also the author of Delight in the WORD: Biblical Counsel for Everyday Issues and is a biblical counselor certified with the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors (NANC) and the International Association of Biblical Counselors (IABC). Paul and his wife Karen have ten children.
"Paul has produced this excellent resource for instructing and inspiring effectual prayer in the life of the local church. I highly recommend this book, not to be read, but read and implemented into the prayer life of your church family. It will be transforming!" -- Daniel P. Fredericks
The New Guidebook for Pastors
by: James W. Bryant & Mac Brunson
The New Guidebook for Pastors is written in the tradition of classics like Criswell’s Guidebook for Pastors. But since most pastoral guidebooks available today date back to 1980 or earlier, this new resource by Mac Brunson and James W. Bryant offers biblical advice and fresh experience-based encouragement to all pastors in their pursuit of excellence and development in their God-called profession.
310 pp. Softcover.
"I highly recommend this resource, especially to young pastors. The pastorate is both a science as well as an art. You need not only knowledge, but wisdom. This book will provide practical insight and wisdom to help the pastor avoid short-sighted pitfalls in the ministry." --Dan Fredericks, Church and Pastoral Ministries Consultant, IFCA International
Taking Back the Good Book
224 pp. Hardcover
What others are saying…
“There surely is, as Amos said, a famine in our land for the hearing the words of the Lord. This book is a clarion and much-needed call to combat the Bible illiteracy of our day. Dr. Kroll issues a challenge that hopefully will result in a movement to turn that famine back into a feast.” – Charles Caldwell Ryrie, Editor, The Ryrie Study Bible
“More than a declaration of war, this book is a battle plan for all who want to make the Bible central in their lives, their churches, and our great nation.” –
Warren W. Wiersbe, Author, The Be Series
“Biblical illiteracy is a scandal in the church. It is high time we remedy this embarrassment and teach the Bible. I commend Dr. Kroll for raising the alarm about the lack of biblical literacy in our homes and churches.” —R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“Taking Back the Good Book offers an alarming analysis that will alert every Bible-believing Christian as to how we can get well. The recovery may be long, but the rehab will be worth it.” – Mark Bailey, President,
Dallas Theological Seminary
