Leadership begins with recognizing ones identity in Christ, and then choosing to live with integrity to uphold this identity. Brooke has written 30 chapters to provide specific lessons on aspects of identity, integrity, and impact. He provides discussion questions to help readers reflect on the chapter and then share the message with others. In each chapter the author offers bits of his experiences in the corporate world, as well as lessons he has learned as a husband and father.
Leadership has a reputation for being one person dominating others with no accountability to anyone else and displaying control over obedient followers. Brooke, however, believes that leaders shouldnt be lonely islands without any relationships. Good leaders will respond to feedback and will be willing to lead by giving advice and setting a good example. As for control issues of leadership, Brooke says that the best leaders give control of everything to God, because worrying about control hinders a leaders effectiveness and his or her attitude regarding servitude. Jesus laid the foundation for I3 living and leadership, writes Brooke. He said, I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me (John 5:29-31 ESV). Christ was totally free of fear because He walked completely in the light of His Father.
Overall I3 is packed with identities based on Scripture and supported with many heartfelt life experiences. Brookes writing style pulls readers into each chapter, provoking serious reflections on ones own leadership style. The only downside to the book is that it leaves readers wanting more. This book is great for the serious Christian searching for how to be an effective leader for Christ. Tom Vick, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
