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.

    Thought-provoking and useful

    Jesus CEO is an insightful, thought-provoking look at Christ. Laurie Beth Jones shows us that the example of Jesus is a well-spring for moral reflection that never runs dry. This was an early inspiration to me in my own writing journey.

    'Exceptional!'

    As a team leader, I am always on the lookout for good paradigms on leadership. This book is written in a reader-friendly, biblically-based, and extremely useful manner. Other than the 'leadership' section of 'With Joseph in the University of Adversity', this one of the few leadership exemplars based upon a biblical character. These characteristics of leadership are truly applicable to our contemporary world, yet gleaned from the life of Christ, and done well. Should be a must-read in business schools!

    Excellent

    It really shows you the characteristics of Jesus as a leader, which you can apply to your position as a leader of a company, or even just everyday life as a leader.

    Simple

    The principle is simple, the foundation credible and the application ¿ remarkable. Principles of effective business can best be demonstrated by Christ.

    Power- full- Integrity

    My son the Business man gave me,'the Artist', this book. I did not put it down.I read thru the night till I finished it. Started marking pages and carried it around with my Bible. My power was not with in my reach with my old thinking. LB Jones opened my heart and God opened the doors.

    Incredibly Inspiring!

    To be successful in life, you have to know who you are and why you are here. To be happy in life, you need to be 'in love'. This book shows you 85 personality/lifesyle aspects of the most wonderfully successful person who ever lived, Jesus Christ. As you read this book, you will fall in love with Him and feel beautiful about yourself at the same time.

    Jesus of this world

    I am a christian and teacher in the public school system. The two attributes are very often immiscible. This book teaches how to incorporate Jesus' principles of leadership into everyday life as he so successfully did even though he and we, as christians are 'not of this world'. I use the book as a daily devotional to accompany my bible. The questions at the end of each chapter are very thought provoking as well.

    Great Book ... but

    This wonderful book articulates some of the greatest principals of leadership ever written. It is unfortunate that the author used this topic to promote herself and her other services through none too subtle references to her directorships and other attributes. Not surprisingly the information on how to contact her for such an engagement is at the end of the book.

    One of my top 5 books of all time

    In addition to reading the Bible, this book helps provide some terrific insight and inspiration with a positive and unique twist. A MUST HAVE for a Christian business person's library.
