J. Oswald Chambers provides extraordinary guideance for leaders of any generation and for any type of group or organization. He provides detailed information and examples of Great Leaders that made huge impact on bettering peoples lives throughout the world, because they loved and cared about lives. Their leadership was not about them, but was because God called them to build His kingdom. He explains that Leadership is not for the faint at heart. You will get bloodied, and at times get very lonely, but the eternal rewardsare extraordinary.. Remember, God does not send the prepared, but prepares those He has chosen to send. Chambers was called to write this text by a loving, graceful and merciful God to help prepare you for your apprenticeship in changing the world for what is good.
