Product Description

Called by Billy Graham "the most respected evangelical clergyman in the world today," Stott is eminently qualified to address modern church leadership---shaped too often by culture rather than Christ. Skillfully unpacking 1 Corinthians 1--4, the lifelong pastor offers a solid biblical model for ministry---and a powerful profile of Paul, early Christianity's greatest leader.

Publisher's Description

Leadership today is no easy task. Christian leaders called to shepherd others get caught in power struggles and are tempted to abuse their pastoral authority. Pastors feel that they must project strength and certainty in order to preach and minister credibly. Too often our models of leadership are shaped more by culture than by Christ. John Stott offers an alternative vision in this biblical approach to servant leadership, exemplified by the apostle Paul in his ministry to the church in Corinth. Above all, Stott reassures us that God is at work even in the midst of our human weakness. "God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong." 1 Corinthians 1:27 A clear articulation of the nature of leadership as well as the thoughtful study of Scripture we have come to expect from John Stott, this exposition of 1 Corinthians 1--4 offers us a model of ministry surprisingly relevant twenty centuries later: leadership rooted in humility and grace, serving the church with the love of Christ. Study guide included.

Author Bio

John R. W. Stott (1921-2011) has been known worldwide as a preacher, evangelist and communicator of Scripture. For many years he served as rector of All Souls Church in London, where he carried out an effective urban pastoral ministry. A leader among evangelicals in Britain, the United States and around the world, Stott was a principal framer of the landmark Lausanne Covenant (1974). His many books have sold millions of copies around the world and in dozens of languages. Stott's best-known work, has sold two million copies and has been translated into more than 60 languages. Other titles include and a daily devotional. He has also written eight volumes in series of New Testament expositions. Whether in the West or in the Two-Thirds World, a hallmark of Stott's ministry has been expository preaching that addresses the hearts and minds of contemporary men and women. Stott was honored by magazine in 2005 as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" and was named in the Queen’s New Years Honours list as Commander of the Order of the British Empire. In 1969, Stott founded the Langham Trust to fund scholarships for young evangelical leaders from the Majority World. He then founded the Evangelical Literature Trust, which provided books for students, pastors and theological libraries in the Majority World. These two trusts continued as independent charities until 2001, when they were joined as a single charity: the Langham Partnership. Langham's vision continues today to see churches in the Majority World equipped for mission and growing to maturity in Christ through nurturing national movements for biblical preaching, fostering the creation and distribution of evangelical literature, and enhancing evangelical theological education.

    For The Reviewer, "Elijjah"...
    October 27, 2014
    You said, "the book was not deep enough for my personal taste." Well, the title does read, "Basic Christian Leadership." *Basic*

    This is why your expectations were not met. You purchased for yourself, known "milk" while expecting "meat."

    That said, do you not think that your 3-star rating is unfair, especially since you *did* recommend this book for new Christians saying, "Good Milk for the new to the faith."

    Disclaimer: I had to choose a rating in order to post my comment. I've yet to read it, but plan to order it. If after reading it, I find it to be less than 5-stars, then I will change my own rating.

    The book was an easy read for sure. In my personal opinion it was a good subject that was stretched to fit the confines of a small book. All data and info was informative. I would recommend this book for people who are new to the Chrisitan faith and desire information concerning Christian leadership. I am humble in my review, but the book was not deep enough for my personal taste.
