Guest More than 1 year ago
are we trying to fit God into our philosophy of leadership.. or is it informed by and rippling out first from Him? I truly appreciated reading this book.. although I thought it a bit narrow-minded to mainly view/discuss leadership as it pertains to the business world. However I feel it is still too culturally informed in its approach to defining Christian leadership.. still too steeped in the environmentally-conditioned philosophy of leadership. wish the authors had dealt more with the all-consuming contemporary rave of 'servant-leadership.'
