Product Description

Leadership is a much-discussed topic. What does it actually mean for us as Christians? Does Christian leadership have its own distinctive shape and character?

In Servants and Fools: A Biblical Theology of Leadership, Arthur Boers examines Jesus's pattern of leadership. Boers shows how this pattern is rooted in service and sacrifice, is cautious about power and hierarchies, and prioritizes the vulnerable. In other words, it often reverses what we expect of leadership, and is different from what we read in most leadership literature. Servants and Fools is a unique resource for students and practitioners across denominations. It offers a foundational perspective on leadership and guidance for practical application in the reader's daily life and ministry.

Endorsements

Arthur Boers has at last written the book we have sorely needed, a book that is destined to become the main text in my seminary courses in church leadership, a book that is sure to be enthusiastically received by thousands of contemporary Christian leaders. Boers energetically underscores the joyful peculiarity of specifically Christian leadership. His book is unique: a biblically based, Christologically grounded defense of leadership in the name of Christ.
-Will Willimon,
Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry, Duke Divinity School, United Methodist Bishop, retired

Servants and Fools is a brilliant and essential contribution to any serious study of leadership: Robust, faithful, insightful biblical teaching. A judicious, knowledgeable harvest of the best contributions from leadership theorists and practitioners. Plus humor, in-the-trenches experiences, and practical applications. I cannot imagine ever teaching another class on leadership without assigning and discussing Arthur Boers's book!
-David W. Gill,
Mockler-Phillips Professor of Workplace Theology & Ethics, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

In Servants and Fools: A Biblical Theology of Leadership, Arthur Boers deconstructs the contemporary cult of "leadership" and serves up a refreshingly Biblical alternative. It is a great cautionary tale for today's churches, seminaries, and Christian non-profits. At the same time, it offers great insight for secular organizations and leaders as well.
-John Suk,
author and pastor of Lawrence Park Community Church, Toronto, Canada
