Overview

Have we been bamboozled by 10-step guides and seminars on leadership?

Is the leadership industry more hype than help?

Ruth Tucker says yes. She challenges conventional wisdom on leadership, making the important distinction between our common Western understanding of leadership and the more biblical concept of legacy.

Leadership Reconsidered tackles current assumptions and asks provocative questions, including

•Does leadership training really make a leader?

•Is the Bible a guide for leadership? Is Jesus the premier example?

•Is servant leadership a misnomer?

•Is leadership inherently good, or is it a neutral concept?

•What do personality and charisma have to do with leadership?

•Is the "Great Man" theory of leadership still valid?

•Are women more suited to leadership roles than men?

•Can leaderless organizations or groups function effectively?

"If we'd concentrate more on our legacy, we'd be the kinds of leaders that we are called to be. Ruth Tucker is one of the finest storytelling teachers I know."--Scot McKnight, Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies, North Park University, www.jesuscreed.org

"Ruth Tucker thoughtfully and boldly challenges current leadership paradigms--with the notion that great leadership and lasting legacy cannot be separated."--Hutz H. Hertzberg, executive pastor, The Moody Church, Chicago

"Tucker shatters many unquestioned but widely assumed 'management principles.' Brilliant, surprisingly creative, this small book is worth many larger ones."--Ralph Winter, founder of the U.S. Center for World Mission and one ofTime's 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America

Ruth A. Tucker (PhD, Northern Illinois University) taught for many years at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Calvin Theological Seminary. She is a conference speaker and award-winning author. Among her many books are From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya and Walking Away from Faith.
