Overview

Servanthood integrates the religious and secular dimensions of life and work in a fresh understanding of leadership and power that is modeled on Jesus as the consummate "servant leader." Too often servanthood is seen as a lofty but unrealistic ideal, possible only for a few, while in the secular realm it is dismissed as servitude. Sims brings the pastoral wisdom of a bishop together with insights from his years as director of the Institute for Servant Leadership to tell us of its power to transform human experience.

    An important Episcopal thinker....

    Bennett Sims challenges those muchyounger than himself to engage in straightforward consideration of how to follow Jesus 'not only with our lips but in our lives'.
