Mike welcomes back Dr. Richard Blackaby to the Linch with a Leader podcast, as they discuss Dr. Blackaby’s latest book, The Ways of God: How God Reveals Himself Before a Watching World. Many Christians scratch their heads at how God works – and for good reason. God’s ways are vastly different than ours. Problems arise when we attempt to do God’s work the world’s way. However, as Dr. Blackaby shares, HOW you do something is as important as what you do.
Dr. Richard Blackaby is the president of Blackaby Ministries International and lives in Atlanta, Georgia. Richard travels internationally speaking on spiritual leadership in the home, church, and marketplace as well as on spiritual awakening, experiencing God, and the Christian life. Richard regularly ministers to Christian CEOs, church, and family leaders. Richard has written or co-authored thirty-five books, including: The Seasons of God: How the Shifting Patterns of Your Life Reveal His Purposes for You; The Inspired Leader: 101 Biblical Reflections for Becoming a Person of Influence; Unlimiting God: Increasing Your Capacity to Experience the Divine; Putting a Face on Grace: Living a Life Worth Passing On; Experiencing God at Home, Rebellious Parenting, Living Out of the Overflow: Serving Out of Your Intimacy with God, Spiritual Leadership Coaching: Connecting People with God’s Heart and Purposes, and Developing a Powerful Praying Church.
