Item description for Leading with Love Study Guide by Alexander Strauch...
Overview Though a wealth of good material is available on the leadership qualities of courage, charisma, discipline, vision, and decisiveness, few books for church leaders include anything about love. This is a major oversight since the New Testament is clear that love is indispensable to service. In the absence of love, Christian leadership counts for nothing (I Corinthians 13:1-3). This book powerfully portrays love as the one leadership quality no church leader can afford to do without. Leading with love is indispensable to producing spiritually healthy churches, reaching others of Christ, and pleasing God.

Rich Truth, Practical Presentation Jun 1, 2006
Like Alex's other books, sound biblical scholarship is combined with a heart for real people with real challenges. The first half of the book made me weep. It's a wonderful treatment of the source and motivation of love. Love that endures and ultimately blesses has to come from a well deeper than the one in my heart. Alex presents Jesus clearly and how both he and those who knew him, loved others with strength, sincere emotion and purpose. The second half of the book is very practical as Alex discusses the many facets of love. I especially appreciated his treatment of the disciplinary aspect of love. This is rarely done well in the church and it is to our harm that it is so. I also enjoyed the anecdotes of love and particularly those about Robert Chapman, who seems to have had a rare ability to love well. Although the book is addressed to leaders, it would be a shame if people chose not to read it for that reason. Its message, though of particular importance to Christian leadership, is needed throughout Christ's kingdom.
One of the best books I have ever read. Mar 13, 2006
Alexander Strauch hits the nail on the head. He expounds on the Scriptures and teaches on the great need for Christian love in the local church and for Christian leaders, teachers, pastors, Sunday School teachers, etc to display the "still more excellent way" of love in their lives and in their ministries. The book was incredibly practical and very clear. As a pastor I was inspired to love my flock better and lead with love. It would be perfect for any pastor, elder, or deacon, or for any Christian leader wanting to study and apply the great doctrine of love. This was honestly one of the best books I have ever read and it has just become required reading for all leaders at our church.
