RIFF: A Distinct Variation is a collection of two-page book summaries that attempt to make the contents of the book actionable and spark further reading/exploration.  If you are intrigued by the RIFF, pick up the book.

Death by Meeting by Patrick Lencioni: This RIFF applies Lencioni’s insights into the meeting structure of Metamora Mennonite Church. It’s translatable to other church contexts.

Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin.  This RIFF applies Willink and Babin’s insights on leadership gleaned on a U.S. Navy SEAL team to leadership questions in the church. I know, strange bedfellows.
