Publisher's Description

Do others look to you for leadership? Do you face a major task or shoulder heavy responsibilities? Do you want to take your leadership skills to a higher level?

When Nehemiah confronted the task of rebuilding Jerusalem's wall, he was heartbroken by the damage he saw and nearly overwhelmed by the task that lay before him. Yet through the application of timeless leadership principles, Nehemiah completed this nearly impossible project, and laid a pattern for success which is just as valid for us today.

Charles Swindoll brings his sensible and straightforward style to offer a deeply spiritual approach to the role of leader. Whatever the context, secular or ministerial, he demonstrates how to size up a task, organize and motivate a team, and respond to inevitable obstacles such as these:

  • Unforeseen setbacks
  • Unrelenting deadlines
  • Criticism and outside resistance
  • Personality conflicts
  • Financial pressures and temptations

The insights that Swindoll draws from Nehemiah's wise administration will change your approach to leadership forever.

    Hand Me Another Brick brings to light the leadership qualities presented in the book of Nehemiah. Mr. Swindoll shows the reader the bench marks of a good leader. The book gradually goes over the process of how to prepare for large projects, the difficulties of these large projects, and the adversity others may show you will you are leading. He weaves in personal experiences with real life illustrations to solidify his points. The book is well written and concise with Scripture through out every chapter. It can some time read as a commentary of the book of Nehemiah. I personally enjoyed his examples and on how to deal with conflict in as a role of authority. I would recommend this book for leadership in ministries and churches.

    Read this book over 15 years ago (when it first came out) and I still recommend this book to anyone wanting to really focus their prayer life. It is a very good read and an easy study. Leaders need to stay the course when things get tough and sometimes out of sorts. This book will help you with ideas on knowing how to handle those situations.
