New Xulon Title Analyzes One Church, Offers Many Insights for Leaders Dr. Catwell masterfully traces the history of Barbados' St. Andrew's Parish Church

MAITLAND, Fla., July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dr. Sylvan R. Catwell's new book, The Development and Impact of St. Andrew's Parish Church, Barbados ($20.99, paperback, 9781629524238; $31.99, hardcover, 9781629524245; $9.99, e-book, 9781629524252) communicates the message that good leaders must prepare well for their mission, and participate in training others to be their successors. According to the author, they must be firm, yet not autocratic. Leaders must listen to sound advice, know when their ministry has lost its effectiveness, and be willing to pass on the mantle of leadership (in God's timing).

"Laymen will better appreciate why some leaders spare no effort to serve and remain attached to their Cure," states the author. "Leaders will realize that they must develop the gift to 'see themselves as others see them.' This should aid them to face the necessity of retraining in new approaches and methods of connecting with their congregants, learning new skills to stay abreast of, and confront the trends in the secular world."

Upon completion of undergraduate study in theology and church history, Dr. Sylvan R. Catwell wrote and published a history of the Brethren Church in Barbados, which became recommended reading at Codrington College, the leading theological college in the Caribbean, which draws its student body from the entire region. Additionally, he has published environmental and theological articles, and has been a leader for some fifty years in his church, while at the same time maintaining close friendships and relations with clergymen of different persuasions.
