Richard Bewes' passion to help equip us for effective service, leadership and teamwork is highly infectious.
John Perry, Former Bishop of Chelmsford and Southampton, England
Through it all, the heart of a shepherd is modelled, explained and gently pressed upon us.
Michael Reeves, President and Professor of Theology, Union School of Theology, Bridgend, Wales
Equipped to Serve is a gift to the church. It is a very readable, practical and deeply Christ-centred book, the fruit of a lifetime of serving our Saviour. It is the sort of book that can be read in just a few sittings, but has a message that will take a lifetime to exhaust.
Richard Bewes is a long-distance runner and a true soldier of the Lord... I would urge all to read it and obtain extra copies for others.
George Verwer, Founder and Former International Director, Operation Mobilisation, Kent, England
I can't think of anyone who has Richard Bewes' capacity for the telling detail; who is his equal in the helpful development of an idea and in the apt illustration drawn both from wide reading and a wide experience of life and Christian ministry. Many a time I was not only moved, but moved to tears. as Richard brought me to the feet of Jesus, wrote of His centrality, all-sufficiency, supremacy, glory and coming again. I find myself renewed in appreciation and understanding of the Cross, more deeply convinced and in love with the Bible, more penitent and regretful of my past and present, more determined about prayer, more knowledgeable, more equipped - and more aware of Jesus. A truly great and effective piece of writing!
Alec Motyer, (1924–2016) Well known Bible expositor and commentary writer

Richard Bewes has produced another treasure-a masterpiece of practical Christianity... A special gift.
Timothy George, Founding Dean of Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama
Written with Richard's typical wit and clarity, this book is very enjoyable, edifying and personally challenging.
