Seasoned NBA executive Pat Williams ignores conventional management wisdom, instead turning to the Scriptures to develop successful leadership principles. Examining the paradoxes that made Christ an exceptional leader, he then offers fascinating and instructive examples that make those principles relevant today. Successful leadership is not a matter of simply maximizing profits, but of striving to make this world a better place, and Williams shows how the paradoxical approach is so much more powerful than traditional leadership based on common sense.
Many people are so preoccupied with the stumbling blocks in their path that they have little time for the building blocks necessary to construct an exemplary life.

Williams delivers a rallying cry to anyone ready to become the champion God intended.
Kid-Tested (and Tested, and Tested...) Guidance for Parents in the Trenches. The Inside Track to Raising Kids.Most of us find raising one, two...or maybe three or four children to be challenging enough. The idea of parenting a half dozen seems almost crazy, and more children than that--impossible. But Pat and Ruth Williams have together raised (and are continuing to raise) nineteen kids. More importantly, they've not just survived the process--they've loved it! What do they know that the rest of us don't? What does it take to make a family of any size not only work, but thrive? After bringing up nineteen kids--as biological parents, adoptive parents, single parents, and step-parents--Pat and Ruth Williams have gained a volume of insights and experience that will enrich your home, strengthen your family, and help you be the parent you want to be. Inside you'll find counsel that really works-whether you're raising one child, one dozen (or more), or any number in between.
