    The author has done a masterful job of showing what authentic leadership should look like. It is likely that every adult knows at least one person who lives the way the each of the 3 main characters of this book lived. At different points in the book, Coach Rocker looked like all 4 of the soils Jesus talked about the parable of the sower in Matthew 13.

    My wife enjoyed the book very much, but I wasn't sure other women would until one of our friends told us how much she enjoyed it and what she got out of it.

    I have been reluctant to read this book for many months, not fully understanding what it was. The author is from the small town we live in, and actually attends the same church as my family (their children are in my children's classes at school as well). While there has been much hype in our area since the release of the book, it was never one I intended to purchase, I thought it was a "self-help" book of sorts. Then it became available through one of the company's I do book reviews for, so I thought I would give it a try.

    While the beginning was a bit rough for me (some choice language is sprinkled through out the first few chapters), I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Needless to say, I immediately handed it off to my husband, who is an elementary school teacher and basketball coach, and told him it is a "must read"!

    While the book does deal with leadership and "self help" issues, it felt more like a fiction story I was reading, which is right up my alley! Coach Rocker is dealing with many issues that are relevant in marriages today, and seems to be going through much more in his job as well. He struggles in many areas, and at times is just trying to stay afloat. How can he be the leader others expect him to be, when he doesn't even have his own life in order?

    The one storyline I couldn't get enough of was that of Joe, the Janitor. What a special and unique man he represented! Through the relationships that are formed, we are taken deeper in to the life of Joe, and find out how he became the man that he is today. On the surface, Joe seems to be your average blue collar worker, but after spending several minutes with him, you learn there is so much more to who he is.

    If you're looking for a great book to read, and glean some wonderful leadership advice from, then this book is for you! Even as a stay at home mom (who leads a girl scout group, coaches Upward Cheerleading, and works with children at church) there were so many take-a ways from this book for me. Everyone needs a "Joe" in their life, teaching them what it means to be a leader, and more importantly, a child of God.

    I enthusiastically give this book 5 stars! It would make a wonderful Christmas gift for that special someone in your life!

    Lead... For GOD'S Sake - Todd G. Gongwer

    As a basketball coach, Coach Rocker and his team keep losing games and their will to win games. Coach seeks encouragement through from a friend of his that is a CEO of a company. He also realizes that GOD puts people in your path in life when you least expect it. As GOD puts Joe, the school janitor in the path of the coach, things begin to happen and Coach starts to have more faith and passion for a purpose in life. This story teaches of how GOD works in his wonderful ways when you least expect it.

    This is a great inspirational story and I encourage people to read it.

    I have to admit when I requested this book, I thought it was non-fiction. Having said that, it truly felt real. Author Todd Gongwer, did an amazing job creating "real life" characters. As I read the book, I felt that I could envision every scene. The story is about a coach trying to lead his basketball team to victory; however, things keep falling apart. Coach finds wisdom in the most unlikely source - the school's janitor, Joe. Joe is someone I wish I knew... he was a true life coach. This story will take you on a journey, and not just a high school basketball team's journey. It will truly make you think about your own life's decisions, and how you can be a better leader for God's sake!

    Disclosure: Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a copy of Lead for God's Sake!; however, all views expressed in this post are that of my own.
