Reviews - What do customers think about Spiritual Leadership-Moving People On Gods Agenda?
Spiritual Leadership by Henry T. Blackaby Jan 12, 2007
Excelent book. Every leader should read this book. Many good examples of leadership, including President Truman.
Spiritual Leadership: Moving People to God's Agenda Jan 11, 2007
We, Christian School teachers, read this and found it very informational. Additionally, it was quite helpful as we learned things that were very helpful in growing and nurturing young leaders of the future.
Very Good, but not the best Jan 9, 2007
The book differentiates between worldly leadership and spiritual leadership, the leader's relationship with God being the key to his/her ability to lead effectively and appropriately. The author's move through eleven chapters each focusing on one key aspect of the leader's life, from The Leaders Challenge (chapter 1), to The Leaders Character (chapter 5), to The Leaders Pitfalls (chapter 11).
List strengths of book. I found the emphasis on the spiritual aspect of leadership to be very refreshing, not to mention accurate! The book is rooted in biblical principles and is focused on helping the leader to make godly decisions in all that he does. The definition of leadership was also very refreshing: "Spiritual Leadership is moving people on to God's agenda" (p. 20). I liked the parallel with Robert Clinton's book on "The Making of a Leader" concerning how God develops leaders. I also found the "Concepts and Scriptures for Consideration" at the end of each chapter to be very helpful.
List weaknesses of book. I found very little to consider as a weakness of this book. The only issue might be that at times it was not always practical. There are times when the authors will share how something needs to be in the life of the leader without following up with clear practical ways/steps to accomplish the desired issue. However, I did not find this to be the case very often in the book.
EXCELLENT BOOK-MUST HAVE FOR PASTORS Nov 9, 2006
Purchased for my husband. This book is a must have for pastors who want to make Godly decisions. Blackably does an excellent job explaining what true leadership is and how to know if you are successful (by God's Standards).
Real Leadership Oct 28, 2006
I can't imagine a harder job than writing a new book on leadership - there are millions and most are pretty stale. But Blackaby's book is different and there is a very simple reason. Instead of 21 of this or 10 of that, this book walks through biblical principles that lead to spirit-led leadership.
My favorite section is Blackaby's talk on how a leader can hear from God and then share new vision. It has changed how I view vision-casting from a biblical basis.
A must read for leaders looking to model biblical principles.
