Reviews - What do customers think about Christ-Based Leadership: Applying the Bible and Today's Best Leadership Models to Become an Effective Leader?

A blend of biblical and business wisdom  Mar 15, 2006
Comprehensive and well researched, this book realistically investigates the structure of church leadership. By comparing biblical teaching with the methods used by successful businesses, readers will be shown startling similarities which can transform current ministries.

While the author's blueprint for ministry comes from the words and actions of Jesus, many churches miss the significance of this scriptural model. The Lord equipped His disciples to function as a single unit, made up of individuals in the body of Christ. By utilizing the gifts of each member, the overall effect promotes unity, while shifting the focus from personal achievement to the benefit of the group. The author has observed that in a church setting where the pastor's role is dominant, the roles of others go dormant. At this point, the ministry ceases to be practical and effective.

Yet, that doesn't need to happen. Through a systematic analysis of successful business policies and practices, readers will see an amazing correlation to the principles Jesus set forth. While some of the secular models can't be adapted for church use, the concepts explained in this book give food for thought. It's clear the author is sincerely trying to encourage Christian leaders to explore the current trend toward a more sensitive approach to ministry.

With quotes and research from leading authorities in this field, as well as penetrating questions for the reader, this book is a comprehensive view of the issue. Scripture supports each principle, while a specific business theory is explored on a parallel plane. The details merge with precision and give weight to the ideas presented.

Christ-Based Leadership uniquely blends biblical wisdom with contemporary success for a timeless look at real leaders. - Joyce Handzo, Christian Book
