Product Description

Coach. Entrepreneur. Mentor. Executive. Servant. Visionary.

Everyone has a different idea of what a leader should be. How can any one person be everything? Scott Rodin brings unity and clarity to this confusing, demanding picture of leadership. He offers a comprehensive model that brings together a biblical understanding of holistic stewardship with the best in leadership studies.

Whether in churches, not-for-profit ministries or in business the need for sound leadership is readily apparent. Drawing on his years of experience in development and fundraising and his extensive theological training, Scott Rodin offers a new paradigm--a transformational approach to leadership that is biblically sound, theologically rich and practically compelling.

Endorsements

"In a time of Christian leadership thinking and practice that often are not much more than a sacred glazing of a secular ham, Scott Rodin's Steward Leader proposition offers a refreshing perspective on the character and volition of those who seek to follow Jesus in their positions of influence. Moving beyond 'how to' formulas, Scott challenges us to examine our 'why to' motivations. His personal transparency, insightful analyses and clarion call to action prepare the way for a revolution in Christian leadership for just such critical times as these."
—David J. Gyertson,
Distinguished Professor of Leadership Formation & Renewal, Regent University


"No discussion of leadership is ultimately very meaningful without filtering it through the teachings of Jesus Christ. I have found much that is helpful and inspirational in this book, and I have every confidence that anyone who reads The Steward Leader will too."
—Richard Stearns,
President, World Vision U.S., and author of The Hole in Our Gospel


"Scott Rodin's The Steward Leader presents a fresh and powerful way to think about what it means to be a Christian leader. In essence, he argues that asking how to become a better leader, or even how to provide more effective leadership, is asking the wrong question. A better question is How can we be more Christlike as we lead? Compellingly, Dr. Rodin shows how taming our self-elevating nature and reflecting the image of a triune God revealed in Christ and Scripture will inevitably make us better leaders. He draws honestly upon his vast experience and faithfully upon the riches of Scripture to help us be better Christ-followers. Getting that right will help us be better leaders more than any how-to-lead book ever written (including mine!). The Steward Leader is a very valuable guide to any Christian leader who is willing to accept that leading is all about being."
—Bill Robinson,
President, Whitworth University, Spokane, Washington


"Finally, a much-needed and long-awaited word on what it really takes to effectively serve the kingdom of our Lord! Rodin, with wisdom and courage, takes the reader on a journey in leading. This text is for serious leaders who are prepared to be faced with the twenty-first-century demand for 'being' over 'doing.' You will be challenged and affirmed by this inspiring, scholarly presentation. This book deserves a place in your library!"
—Israel L. Gaither,
National Commander, The Salvation Army


"In an age of pragmatism where effective leadership is often defined by outcomes which work, Scott Rodin offers us a refreshing leadership paradigm shift. Rather than focusing primarily on the necessary acquisition of leadership skill sets or leadership development techniques, or the pursuit of outcomes, Rodin maintains that the place for the leader to start and thereafter live is with the unseen part of the leader, the part that God knows and sees."
—Eugene Habecker,
President, Taylor University, and author of Rediscovering the Soul of Leadership


"The body of work on leadership is so massive that one could wonder if any new words are needed. There are some--and Scott Rodin has offered them in the form of a theology of leadership that is grounded in stewardship and freedom. This book is an inspiring addition to the many writings on leadership theory, practice and characteristics. I believe that those called to lead will find The Steward Leader particularly meaningful and formational."
—David R. Black,
President, Eastern University
