"At times Bartons words were a needed wake-up call and at other times they were a source of refreshment. Im thankful for both."
"This beautiful cross between Ordering Your Private World and Celebration of Discipline isnt a book you merely read; rather, [its] one you process with the Holy Spirit, with passages that call to be re-read and swallowed slowly. Definitely not a glorified self-help project."
"Ruth Haley Bartons book Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership is a must-read for all those in ministry."
"There are many books that help sharpen our leadership skills, but this one brings challenging insights to strengthen our souls which will transform our leadership."
"Ms. Barton relies heavily on the life of Moses as a window into the different aspects of leadership in which we might learn to seek God and allow God to strengthen us to provide spiritual leadership to others. The book is not just for those already in leadership roles, but also for those who are seeking leadership."
"The most significant book I read in 2008 . . . is a call to inspect ones inner life and motives for leadership with neither guilt nor obsession, allowing God to tweak and morph it at will."
"It may seem hard to believe, being a pastor or other religious leader can be very draining on ones faith. Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership answers a real problem that many may not realize exists for their pastors and priests."
