In this day of slick marketing techniques people want something genuine and authentic. This book offers an old, yet refreshing perspective of the kind of leadership that will make a positive impact on our contemporary world.
This is one of those books that I found myself highlighting sentences and thoughts very often. I read it over the vourse of two weeks as my schedule allowed, but slow enough to be able to digest it. I'm looking forward to reading it again. Actually, this is one of those that I will not be loaning out to others. I wholeheartedly reccomend it, but you'll have to buy your one. As a side note, this is the book that originally inspired Dr. John Maxwell to pursue learning and teaching others leadership. In many ways it provided a foundation for his current ministry.
If you are looking for resources which cover every area of leadership, this is the book. I have it on my nightstand and have read and re-read it many times. It encourages those in ministry by exposing the downsides with a witness of better things to come. It is a must for every one who is called into leadership.
I am reading this book as part of a Study I am taking for leadership in the church.. Wonderful reading great information and teaching. A must read or even a great book to use in a study for those who are part of the leadership of a church or looking at going into leadership in a church..
We use this material at our church for leadership training. It has been so effective in the lives of our leaders because it's so easy to understand and so biblical. Thank you brother Colson for allowing yourself to be used and lead by the Lord in such a powerful way.
