Item description for Boundary Leaders by Gary R. Gunderson...

Overview
A major challenge for religious communities today lies in harnessing the commitment and energy of religious people to address larger societal issues. Key to such efforts are people who are willing to live and learn "at the boundaries" where secular meets religious, public meets private, and subcultures meet each other. "A way of life on the boundaries, lived in community and faith, finds a broad menu of possibilities," says Gunderson. Writing for clergy and lay people and other community groups, Gunderson employs his expertise from years of leading and coordinating work at the Carter Center and elsewhere to improve the quality of life in local communities. He discusses the five important traits leaders must cultivate, centered on knowledge, commitment, integrity, relationship, and the future.

Reviews - What do customers think about Boundary Leaders?

Good Material, but Some Issues  Oct 21, 2005
I am a grammar Nazi. Now, you'll look through this review and find many questionable grammatical choices, but we're not talking about my problems, we're talking about Gunderson's.

If you get through the introductory section, you'll be okay. The problem is, the introductory section is very very badly written. So much so that I E-mailed Augsburg and pointed it out to them. For example, first sentence first chapter: "I have not even one family in my parish that has so much as one brick in their home, they are so poor." What is Gunderson trying to say here? Do rich people keep bricks stored in their living rooms? But, as I mentioned, get through the first chapter and it's much smoother sailing. I'm going to guess that Gary was pressed for time in getting an introductory chapter to his editor and it never really got properly examined.

What Gunderson has to say about leadership is insightful. A leader isn't some jackass in an office, they are instead someone who by dint of happenstance or personality find themselves to as leaders. A good book to read for dummies who think they have to do it all themselves and can't trust or delegate. Also a decent book for the rest of us, too.

And let me say again, a rotten introduction and first chapter--just skip 'em.
