The first comprehensive resource for teaching spiritual leadership development in the twenty-first century - for all faith traditions
America is changing. Technology, social networking, global economics, immigration, migration and multiculturalism urge communities of faith to expand their vision of spiritual leadership and reflect on how leaders can better serve congregations and communities in the twenty-first century.
In this multifaith, cross-cultural, and comprehensive resource for both clergy and lay persons, contributors who are experts in the field explore how to engage spiritual leaders and teach them how to bring healing, faith, justice and support to communities and congregations. They offer tools, advice, practical methodologies and case studies on how stakeholders - congregational leaders, ordained religious leaders, educators, students and community leaders - learn how to do theology in context and grow into faith leadership roles.
