    Best, most challenging book I've read on leadership

    This book is not for the feeble-hearted who want to pick up a few of the latest tips to make them more effective at work. The Blackabys challenge you right to the core of your being. Yet, if you take this book to heart you will find yourself becoming a person who will leave a lasting, valuable legacy.

    An excellent discussion of what it really means to be a spiritual leader.

    In this book, Henry Blackaby (of "Experiencing God" fame) and his son tackle the issue of spiritual leaders. This book is aimed at those people who consider themselves Christian leaders, either in the realm of the church or in the secular realm (and are they really all that different?). A lot of advice is given, as well as a number of warnings. There are even a few challenges to either toe the line or stop trying to lead, as you're just doing more harm than good if you're not leading properly. This book is very good. It's not an easy read, as nobody comes unscathed from this. There were definitely a few things I flat out didn't like in this book. Not that they were wrong, I just didn't like them. But just because I don't like something doesn't mean I don't have to deal with it, as I get the sneaking suspicion that the authors are right and I'm not. All that aside, there are a lot of nuggets for anyone leading an organization of any size to get from this book. It's not for everybody, and it's not a light read, but if you are a leader who cares about the spiritual side of your life and your organization, you can't go wrong here.

    Kind of makes you feel like dirt

    It was an okay book, dont get me wrong. I believe one must be led by the spirit! But there are young kids out there learning what it is, we must not forget them. This book is directed to a more experinenced crowd only leaving the novice feeling like he is nothing. In every aspect of life this book talks about you must have God apart of your life, this is very true, but it seems so hardcore like if I were to eat with out Gods say so I wouldnt be led by the spirit to eat, or if I went to help another human being im left with asking myself ' Did the spirit tell me to or did I tell myself' then your left with a confusing thought: Am I being led by the spirit or am I one of these influential leaders this book talks about? I believe this is a good book for a more experienced crowd, its ver honest and very hepful if you of the age of 30 on up. Anything else is going to leave the novice very confused. I've been going to bible college now for half a year, but have been reading the bible and learning about for almost a year and half. Im born again and feel like im called to do something in the ministry, but this books just makes you feel as if you arnt suppose to be there if God has come knocking on your door with shinning lights and trumpets sounding for you to be a 'spiritual leader'. I just feel im called because if I quit bible college now I'd have nothing left, teaching the word is my passion. BUT ohhhh this book might condemn me as a heretic I better rethink myself! Seriously though, If you are young DO NOT read this book, yet read something more for your age let the 'spiritual giants' stick with this...basically thats all this book is directed towards. It kinda made me feel like I was a nobody, it really makes me want to call the mand tell them what kind of a leader they are.
