Servant Leadership: Jesus & Paul 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Servant Leadership: Jesus & Paul is the tale of two different books. The first half of the book which focuses on the servant leadership of Jesus is vastly different in tone, style, and thoroughness of research than the second half of the book, which focuses on Paul's leadership as demonstrated through his epistles. The reason for this is likely that Agosto's doctoral dissertation provided the basis for the section on Paul's leadership. The section on Jesus is much less thoroughly researched and, as a result, falls into the trap of subjectivity which so often accompanies discussions of the Historical Jesus and is focused almost entirely on the political intersections of Jesus' leadership choices, ignoring everything else which affects his practice of servant leadership, the titular theme of the book. As a resource on Pauline leadership or the Pauline epistles, this work is excellent. Sadly, the same cannot be said for his writing on Jesus' leadership or the synoptic gospels upon which Agosto bases that writing.
