In the Name of Jesus: Reflections on Christian Leadership
Don't let the briefness of the book mislead
I have used this book as a discipling tool for many years now. In a straightforward approach with deep humility of heart, this book captures the journey of a humble servant of Jesus who truly desired to serve Him in the great and small tasks offered him. And when we are serving Jesus, there are really no great servants, are there? Just fellow towel bearers who wash feet, pray, confess, forgive, and follow the Master, Who always leads us in paths of righteousness for His Name sake. Although I have read this book in one sitting, I find that slowing walking through it with a friend is far more enriching.

Very good book.
We purchased this book to use for our devotion time at our weekly staff meetings. It has spurred much thought and good discussions.

Study this book annually.
This deceptively simple book takes us to the heart of Christian service and to some of the stumbling blocks servants, especially leaders, face. With humility, respect for other humans, and a deep understanding of our Savior, Nouwen gives us all a lot to think about and apply.
