Parrott is currently the president of Belhaven College, an innovative institution recognized as a leading evangelical college in the arts. He has a PhD in higher education administration from the University of Maryland. In addition to advising a wide variety of ministries in the United States and internationally, Parrott serves in leadership roles for the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization, Mission America Coalition, and Council for Christian Colleges & Universities.
" Now more than ever, leaders everywhere are realizing that short-term thinking doesn't work. The Longview by Dr. Roger Parrott is essential medicine for today's hurry-up, quick-fix lifestyle. Read this book, read it again, and apply its message to your life." - Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager(r) and Lead Like Jesus
Roger Parrott is indeed a leader who looks at things from a long-range perspective. I have had the privilege of knowing him and watching him lead for many years. Not only does he model good leadership, but he also seeks to help others lead well." - Steve Douglass, president of Campus Crusade for Christ
"Roger Parrott has demonstrated over the years that true Christian leadership is a matter of integrity performed with excellence. When you live a life like that, you can't help but have followers! In his new book, The Longview: Lasting Strategies for Rising Leaders, he provides weathered advice to young men and women on leading with honesty and truthfulness. I highly recommend it!" - Joni Eareckson Tada, JAF International Disability Center
" Leaders in the United States have needed to heed the message of this book for years. Roger Parrott explains how leaders can best serve their people and the organizations they lead. Leading others is like running a marathon, not a sprint, and Roger Parrott is a leadership marathoner par excellence! I highly recommend this book." - D. Michael Lindsay, author of Faith in the Halls of Power
Andrea Schultz5 Stars Out Of 5April 6, 2010Andrea SchultzHumility in leaders is invaluable. Dr. Parrott uses Jesus as an example:Jesus was the most humble person to ever walk this earth. He was God in the body of a human, and He could have done anything He wanted to do possessing the power to make anything happen. But He limited Himself to only what His Heavenly Father asked Him to do. And so through His humility, Jesus was able to spend ordinary days with His disciples and reveal the natures of God to them through a deep mentoring relationship. (p. 68)I think my favorite part of the book is Chapter 13 Catching the Wind of God. He begins the chapter this way:I am convinced one of the core problems of evangelical leaders is that too often weve stopped trying to catch the wind of God n our sails because weve become fairly effective at creating our own independent power to get Gods work done... And even though our motors can propel us forward to do many good things in ministry, we will miss catching the wind of God when our motors are revved rather than our sails mended. (p. 237) I used to attend a large church in which the leader seemed to be running a power boat as opposed to catching the wind of God in a sailboat (he went so far as to ride his Harley out on stage for one weekend service). We left the church because of some of the things we saw behind the scenes, and were alarmed by how the church seemed to be man-made instead of relying and waiting on God; we didnt want to sit under that type of leadership. I pray that they are not still on that path. This book is well-suited for leaders like that; they only need to stop and accept that Godly counsel by reading this book.I thank Dr. Parrott for writing such a practical book, which is useful for both university presidents and lay leaders. I personally learned a lot from his insights. This is a book that will be referenced by me over and over again.This book was provided by the B&B Media Group for review purposes.
