New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni is best known for books such as Death By Meeting and The Five Dysfunctions of A Team that use extended fables to teach businesses of all kinds how to improve the effectiveness of their operations.

Lencioni, a devout Catholic, is putting his talents and knowledge at the service of the Church as co-founder of the ministry Amazing Parish and through his soon-to-be-released book The Better Pastor.

The Better Pastor resembles Lencioni's past works in that it is told in the style of a fable. But, unlike his other books, The Better Pastor takes place in a church, telling the story of a good pastor who (like every boss) has some challenges. Like most obstacles, recognizing them is the first step to overcoming them and becoming more effective as a leader.

Jeff Cavins introduces the book to priests in this way, "In The Better Pastor Pat describes the journey of one priest who removes the "period" after seminary training and replaces it with a "comma." In other words, his learning continues throughout his priesthood."

Lencioni is so passionate about his mission to help pastors become more effective in pastoral management, because he knows that a well-run parish builds the foundation for facilitating an amazing parish. That's why Amazing Parish is sending out 14,000 copies of his new book, one to every pastor in the United States.

Author and speaker Chris Stefanick explains why The Better Pastor will be so transformative for Church organizations: "Lencioni is one of the most sought after leadership experts of our time, and the most successful organizations in the world look to him for advice. His advice is simple, focused, and accessible, just like our ministries should be."

Every pastor in the country should be receiving a free copy of The Better Pastor in their mailboxes in mid-August. If you want your own copy, pre-order one on Amazon here.
