Product Description

In this revised edition (original: 1997), seminary professors Rima and MacIntosh warn how those in leadership must confront the warning signs of potential failure they term "the dark side". The "dark side" refers to inner urges, compulsions and motivations that drive one toward success. This book helps you understand what the dark side is, leads you to discover your own dark side, and then guides you through the steps to redeem your dark side.

Publisher's Description

The Christian world has been rocked by the number of prominent leaders, in both church and parachurch organizations, who have been compromised by moral, ethical, and theological failures. This pace-setting volume addresses this alarming problem and offers Christian leaders valuable guidance in dealing with the inherent risks of their work.
Using biblical and current examples, the authors describe the characteristics of five types of leaders and the problems that are most likely to develop if their particular dysfunctions develop unrestrained. McIntosh and Rima offer a series of steps for leaders to consider so they can take control of their dark side and learn to harness its creative powers. This edition includes a new introduction, updated information throughout, a self-assessment tool, and other additional material. Includes endorsements from John Maxwell, Leighton Ford, Leith Anderson, and Rob Angel.

    A must read for every Christian in leadership. The book identifies major leadership characteristics that can be the potential downfall of leaders along with self-examinations at the end of each chapter. McIntosh claims that the same attributes that make one a great leader are also the greatest threat.
