The call to lead and the call to holiness are profoundly intertwined. But in our world today, what does it even mean to be a leader? What does it even mean to be holy?
Using the timeless and transcendent wisdom of the saints and the latest findings in business and social science, this book takes an insightful examination of the leadership principles demonstrated in the lives of the saints and their applicability to our modern everyday lives. Faced with challenges where their faith and even their lives hung in the balance, the saints’ responses exemplify what are authentic, effective, and inspirational models of leadership that we can use to guide us to our eternal destination.
Echoing the words of Saint Francis of Assisi, “Come along, I’ll show you how.” Let us call on Francis, Dominic, Ignatius, Francis Xavier, Therese of Lisieux, Teresa of Avila, Maximilian Kolbe, Padre Pio, Mother Teresa, Pope John Paul II, and countless others who have gone before us to be our companions and guides, illuminating the path for us as we step up to lead and move forward to journey towards Christ.
