Who Is Your Covering?: A Fresh Look at Leadership, Authority, and Accountability based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
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.
