The Christian Leader
What if everything you've heard about leadership is wrong?
Secular models of leadership rooted in pragmatic success dominate Christian leadership in the West. It makes our work impersonal and exploitive. And, at worst, it serves the leader rather than those the leader leads.
We need a different style of leadership—one patterned after Jesus. We need to learn to influence others out of our character, for that is what Jesus did.
The Christian Leader is not about improving your church, your work, or your family; it is about changing how you lead. It does more than teach you how to modify your behavior; it shows you how to change the sources of your behavior—your motives and reasons for being a Christian leader. In the end, as everything you know and believe about Christian leadership is transformed, it will lead to transformation in those you lead and serve.
