What People Are Saying

Steve Atkerson
"Most believers probably suspect that all is not well in Zion, but they are slow to question the status quo ... the appalling truth of the matter is that most systems of church polity are utterly without Scriptural clothing!" --From the foreword

    Challenging Perspective on Authority in the Church and Family

    Viola puts forth a controversial, non-traditional view of leadership and authority in both the church and the family. He challenges both typical top-down and ground-up authority as going against Christian teaching. This book will stimulate your thinking, probably shift your way of viewing the Apostle Paul, and certainly the process of submission as promoted in most Christian and patriarcial societies. I have mixed conclusions about what he writes, but would recommend it to someone who thinks they have thie concept of leadership down pat. Servant leadership is the focus of this short book. He makes a distinction between authority that is assumed and dictatorial and that which is compelling because of the servant relationship which governs the mutual relationship.
