Modern business practice and scholarship have honed the laws of the leadership. To achieve success, you're supposed to---among other things---leverage your time, choose a strong team, and avoid unnecessary controversy. But what do you do when the laws of leadership collide with the teachings of Christ?
What would it mean to reveal your true character to those you lead? What would it take for you to take an honest look at yourself and ask, 'Am I leading from my mission ... or my shadow mission?' and Using stories from their own lives and ministries, Bill Hybels, John Ortberg, and Dan Allender illustrate how the laws of leadership sometimes crash head-on into the demands of discipleship, and how the decisions you make at these crossroads could affect not only you, but the destiny of those you lead.
The Call to Lead: Following Jesus and Living out Your Mission includes the previous releases from the Leadership Library series: When Leadership and Discipleship Collide, by Bill Hybels, Overcoming Your Shadow Mission, by John Ortberg, and Leading Character from Dan Allender.
