The world at its worst desperately needs the church at its best. But the church at its best is facing a leadership crisis. Many no longer trust church leaders and consider church irrelevant. Can the church possibly regain her moral and spiritual leadership in society? Author James Burn believes it can. Before the church can lead society, however, it must again learn to lead itself through the integration of a leadership culture that identifies, trains, and releases new leaders into local churches and into the world.
