How can you become a more effective leader? By building a strong spiritual foundation from the ground up! Writing as a friend and mentor, MacDonald draws from biblical truth and life experience to help you grow in all areas of leadership, including cultivating spiritual formation, encouraging restoration and renewal, and dealing with difficult people. Hardcover.
"Shoddy work on the deep, unseen foundations of your life will be your downfall. This is the warning from Gordon MacDonald in his latest work stemming from his many years of experience. MacDonald points out the key components that determine the strength of our foundation. Beginning with the inner life of a leader, the author addresses issues of character, attitudes, and spiritual practices. The second half of the book deals with the outer life of a leader: presenting Christ and modeling Christ to those we lead. We must constantly maintain the integrity of our foundations to enjoy a lasting, fulfilling life and ministry.
"Although the book covers a broad range of topics and can become a bit tedious at times, it has an important message for leaders at every stage of ministry. The style and prose will likely appeal to mid- or late-life ministers; however, the content is essential for young, emerging leaders who wish to make a lasting impression on their generation.
"Perhaps the best way to read this book is with a group of peers. Each relatively short chapter concludes with three coaching questions or assignments. These are conducive for inspiring one another and holding each other accountable as you strive to build solid foundations for life and ministry.
"Building Below the Waterline is worth reading, and the foundations it addresses are worth building. Take time to read this book and apply its principles before attempting to build anything else above the waterline."
