A Great Presentation of Paul's Leadership Oct 29, 2006
To say that the study of Paul fascinates me is an understatement. What MacArthur has done is this volume is commendable. His approach to Paul's leadership must be commended. I recommend this volume to every pastor, leading a church.

Leadership principles taught in almost a story format Sep 28, 2005
I really loved how John MacArthur takes you through the whole life of the Apostle Paul and along the way highlights key leadership characteristics. While learning about how to be a leader I also learned a lot about the Apostle Paul.
What was so useful about this book is that it taught that each of us are leaders: husbands, fathers, supervisors, teachers, role models, etc. We all need to develop these characteristics in our life. Someone is always looking up or at us for inspiration. We want people to be strengthened in our presence, bolder in the face of opposition, and refocused on the hope we have. It's a great read.
Good but... Jun 27, 2005
I am a big fan of John Macarthur. Many of his books have been very important to the Body and have impacted my life personally. I bought this book expecting an indepth study of Biblical leadership but that was not the case. It reads about like a Sunday School lesson to me. There will be few (if any) new insights or concepts here for anyone who has been in Christian leadership for any length of time. A good book but not a great one by a very effective teacher of the Word.
