Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Management consultant Jones draws on the leadership techniques of Jesus Christ to provide guidance tips on inspiring and managing others. (Apr.)
Library Journal
The author, the owner of a marketing, advertising, and business development firm, examines the life of Jesus and gleans from it useful advice for leaders of businesses and other formal organizations. She observes that Jesus was particularly strong in three areas: self-mastery, action, and relationships. Using each of these strengths as a title for a section in the book, she reflects on various aspects of his life and teachings. Although some Christians might be surprised by some of her theological interpretations, e.g., one chapter is titled "He Kept in Constant Contact with his Boss," others will find this book a novel approach to the old problem of making Christian teachings relevant to modern organizational life. A similar but nonreligious approach to encouraging humane leadership is Keshavan Nair's A Higher Standard of Leadership: Lessons from the Life of Gandhi (LJ 12/1/84). Recommended for public libraries. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/1/94.]-Andrea C. Dragon, Coll. of St. Elizabeth, Convent Station, N.J.
