Publisher's Description

More than ever, people are talking about leadership. But much of today's discourse is advancing the same old misconceptions.

In The Book on Leadership, best-selling author, pastor, and teacher John MacArthur sets the record straight: Leadership does not come from a job title. It isn't a matter of personality or charisma. And it isn't the same thing as iron-fisted authority. True leadershipⷕthe kind that refuses to bend to a shifting, fickle worldⷕcomes from a much deeper source.

Based on the writings of one of the most effective spiritual leaders of all timeⷕthe apostle PaulⷕMacArthur presents the "26 Characteristics of a True Leader." Whether you are a business leader, civic leader, church leader, parent, teacher, or student, the life of Paul will empower you to unleash your own capacity for leadership.

Author Bio

John MacArthur is the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, president of the Master’s College and Seminary, and featured teacher with the Grace to You media ministry. In more than four decades of ministry, John has written dozens of bestselling books, including The MacArthur Study Bible, The Gospel According to Jesus, and Slave. He and his wife, Patricia, have four married children and fifteen grandchildren.

In The Book on Leadership, John MacArthur gives us 26 principles for leadership found in the life of Paul. MacArthur uses Paul’s voyage to Rome, and subsequent shipwreck, as chronicled in Acts 27 and Paul’s second letter to Corinth to derive these principles.
MacArthur does what he does best: he cuts through the fluff of current trends to give us a decidedly biblical view of what the Bible says on a certain issue, in this case it is leadership. He reminds us that “leadership for the Christian always has a spiritual dimension.” This is such a refreshing perspective in lieu of the many Christian books on leadership that call us to imitate worldly leadership styles of CEOs and major secular corporations.
This quote best sums up where MacArthur is headed in this book, “To put it simply, leadership is influence. The ideal leader is someone whose life and character motivate people to follow. The kind of leadership derives its authority from the force of righteous example, and not merely the power of prestige, personality or position.” The book follows by giving 26 biblical, practical ways that God calls us to lead stressing God’s call for us lead with character, “not style, technique, methodology.”
Those looking for something witty or lighthearted may be dismayed at the directness found in these pages – but those genuinely seeking to know God’s heart for leadership, will be more than satisfied by the principles found in this book.
Throughout its pages, MacArthur has given us a wonderful synopsis of God’s standard for leadership. These principles are both a relief and a challenge. As a relief, we don’t have to feel bad that we are not as inventive, creative, or powerful as the CEO of a major U.S. corporation in order to lead and have influence. Although we are relieved from the world’s standard, we now must face the counter-culture challenge of leading as God would have us to lead: with character, humility, and service.
As Christians, we are all called to lead whether at home, work, school, or play, and MacArthur has done an exceptional job of making God’s principles of leadership accessible and easy to comprehend. On an esthetic level, I also like the way the book looks – the cover and pages have the look of an old, weathered classic – for which it is destined to become. – Todd Burgett, Christian Book
