Mathew Philip has done a fine job of producing a much-needed study of Christian leadership derived from the context of his own ministry experience. It is a healthy balance between Biblical investigation on the subject on one hand and practical everyday concerns and issues on the other. The topics addressed are laid out quite independently from each other and this makes for easy reading. For this reason, lecturers in Bible schools will find it especially useful. Graham Houghton, Ph.D. Cambridge, New Zealand. Recent years saw the publication of scores of books on leadership, both in Christian circles and in the secular world of politics and business. But this book fills in some gaps and will be a valuable addition to them. It is written in a style and format that is very reader-friendly. The ideas are communicated well. This book could serve as a good textbook in classes on leadership in theological institutions. Saphir Athyal, Ph.D. World Vision International, Asia Pacific Region.
