Heaven's Perspective takes you on an incredible journey of seeing life through a different lens: the eyes of heaven. Seventeen ordinary Christians share intimate stories of their most painful experiences in life--but then Jesus steps in, rewriting their suffering as glory, loss as the fuel for their destiny and filling the deepest desires of their hearts. A mother learns that the son she lost will never experience a day without her in heaven. A missionary harassed by the KGB learns the secret rescue mission Father sent him for, a thrice-divorced woman sees Jesus take her shame away for ever--and much more. You'll learn to reinterpret your own life in the light of glory while you absorb tools for doing the same with others.

How to Ask Great Questions

Rating:

Read an In-Depth Review

This short, practical volume offers a wealth of great tips and techniques for constructing excellent coaching questions. While not a coaching book per se (it is targeted at small group coaches or leaders), How to Ask Great Questions covers quite a few of the bread and butter asking techniques coaches use: open and closed questions, probing questions, asking about what's significant, and bringing out people's inner thoughts and true feelings.

The best feature of the book is that it includes example after example of great questions created for specific scenarios or situations. Any coach (and especially beginners, coaches in training or small group coaches) could benefit from having How to Ask Great Questions handy.
