The Professionally Religious are leaders who put on a pious spiritual veneer but in reality are inwardly bankrupt and self-serving. More tragically, where our leaders go, so go our organizations. The Church desperately needs the Professionally Religious to become the servants that Jesus boldly challenged His contemporaries to be. This only happens through a rediscovery of a personal spiritual vibrancy that eclipses any attraction to positional self-serving leadership. This book addresses the spiritual poverty in the Church in North America by addressing the spiritual poverty in its leaders. Using the book of Matthew, the author examines what Jesus said to the Professionally Religious in His day and applies that to what he believes Jesus would say to spiritual leaders today. Written to leaders and followers, the book goes on to talk about how to create environments of spiritual vibrancy that prevent or reverse the effects of professional religion. While many books focus on the skills or head knowledge for effective leadership, this book will boldly target motives and heart conditions of leaders.
