Publisher's Description

Revised and updated edition of the classic work on spiritual leadership

In A Work of Heart, bestselling author and missional expert Reggie McNeal helps leaders reflect on the ways in which God is shaping them by letting us see God at work in the lives of four quintessential biblical leaders: Moses, David, Jesus, and Paul. McNeal identifies the formative influences upon these leaders, which he sees as God's ways of working in their lives: the same influences at work today forming leaders for ministry in our times. He explores the shaping influence of culture, call, community, conflict, and the commonplace.

  • Offers guidance for church leaders to let God shape their hearts from the inside out
  • Reggie McNeal is the author of the bestselling book Missional Renaissance
  • Gives reassurance for maintaining perspective while doing the demanding work of ministry

The book includes illustrative stories of contemporary leaders opening their hearts to God's guidance.

    A Work of Heart: Understanding How God Shapes Spiritual Leaders (Updated Version) by Reggie McNeal

    Spiritual leadership is a work of heart. That is the focus of this book as it takes us on a journey through the spiritual development of four biblical characters, two from the Old Testament (Moses and David) and two from the New Testament (Jesus and Paul) then part two discusses the six areas of a leader's life that are used to develop him spiritually to lead others. These "arenas" are culture, call, community, communion, conflict, and the commonplace. Through the stories of the biblical characters and the "arenas" the writer leads us to marvel at God's design and handiwork in our own life to make us a great person and not just a great leader.

    For those of us that have been focusing on the functions of a leader this is a strong reminder to refocus our attention to our own spiritual development so we can properly lead others to develop in their relationship with God. The flip side of that coin is the warning that is given in the book to those to neglect their heart development will reap the rewards of that inattention. He lists the fruit of our neglect as ranging from "spiritual powerlessness to lackluster leadership to spiritual bankruptcy. The lesson is if we pay attention to our spiritual development through our personal relationship with Christ and partner with Him in our own "heart-shaping" we avoid many of the pitfalls and reap many of the blessings. Make certain we intentionally look after our own hearts while dealing with the hearts of others.

    The book is well written and challenges the reader page to page and paragraph to paragraph. I believe you will find this volume an added help to your leadership efforts as you serve Christ in an ever changing world.
