What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“This is the kind of book that could only be the fruit of long, honest, and self-critical experience. Bill Robinson looks at Jesus’ style of leadership: that Jesus dwelt with those he led, that he was seen by (transparent to) those he led, that he reflected his Father’s glory rather than hugged it to himself, that he spoke with both grace and truth. This is a truly Christian discernment of what might be wise action, gleaned always from within earshot of the cries of those in most need of help.” — Iain Torrance

I experienced Bill Robinson’s inspirational leadership, ‘up close and personal,’ for about a decade at Whitworth. In this delightful and example-filled book, I learn how he does it: he is a deeply committed and very happy follower of Jesus of Nazareth—in the most remarkable and creative ways. May his kind multiply!” — F. Dale Bruner

“Incarnate Leadership is written by one who knows about leadership from a depth of experience. It rings with authenticity as does Bill Robinson himself. Frankly, I have not seen a book that challenges the reader quite like this one. The call to be transparent, real, and even authentic should speak to any who dares to lead.” — Andrew K. Benton

Every follower of Jesus who is in a leadership position can benefit from this book. Bill Robinson captures the basic leadership practices and attitudes of Jesus that can undergird everything else we learn from the latest management literature. I just wish I could have read Incarnate Leadership forty years ago! — John Huffman

This book offers a unique blending of Christological truth with dust and grit reality about leadership. Clearly, it was written by a leader who takes Jesus Christ more seriously than either our drive to succeed or our failings. Best of all, Robinson's relentless honesty demonstrates how the incarnate truth of Christ really does make the leader more effective. — M. Craig Barnes

“Bill Robinson’s Incarnate Leadership is insightful, practical, and even inspiring. First, I am convinced that Bill has discerned correctly the central leadership priorities Jesus demonstrated in the Bible’s Gospels. I love Bill’s ‘plain talk.’ It helps me know that though this book is rooted in biblical truth and is set within well-developed leadership theory, it is also a down-to-earth guide toward how to lead in a way that honors God and genuinely helps people. The book will teach me how to go about my service in that very Jesus-like way.” — Greg Waybright
