In Called to Be God's Leader, readers examined God's call for leadership through the life of Joshua. And now, in this fourth book in the Biblical Legacy Series, Drs. Henry and Tom Blackaby go behind the scenes of one of the Bible's greatest leaders in Anointed to Be God's Servants. Many people desire to be a "Joshua" but are called to serve in supporting positions. Through the life of Paul, readers will learn of the critical role that supporting companions play in God's kingdom. Why did Paul so desperately need companions? What does true companionship look like? How does Paul's life teach us to effectively support leaders around us? Anointed to Be God's Servants answers all of these questions and more, revealing the wonderful nature of interdependence in God's kingdom.
