Reviews - What do customers think about Leader In The Making?
This book is outstanding! May 17, 2005
This book is outstanding. It is practical, relevant and Joyce's honesty is refreshing. The book outlines areas of the soul that must be dealt with in order to be an effective leader for Christ. The twist is that Joyce outlines the negatives, but tells you what you need to do to make it "right". She is constantly reminding you of her personal challenges and that if she can change - anyone can. It constantly outlines personal leadership pitfalls that leaders need to be aware of in order to lead effectively. If you desire to be an effective leader after God's own heart - you must get this book. I plan to purchase this book for my entire leadership team.
A very long list Feb 17, 2004
Joyce Meyer is obviously a gifted leader that has some valuable insight to share to other aspiring leaders. However, this book fell short of its potential as a vehicle through which she could share this knowledge. I have three major gripes with the book that hounded me throughout the time I read it:
1) The book is basically a never-ending list of do's and don'ts, with chapter divisions thrown in for different categories of do's and don'ts. Which is fine for a journal or manual, but gets a bit tiresome for a full-blown book.
2) She is quite repetitive with some of her points and examples and could have expressed her points more succinctly for more impact. It seemed like she had a goal for how many pages she was going to fill, and so she devoted entire chapters to categories that were only slight variants to other chapters.
3) This book is basically a diary of her experiences. Which is fine if the book is intended to be an autobiography, but I did not get that impression from reading the jacket cover. I felt like she could have expressed the same ideas and used a wider variety of sources to back up her ideas, rather than almost soley her personal experience.
All in all, I did learn from the book. It is still a useful tool and is definitely based on Scripture. My gripe is more of a stylistic one than of content.
A Leader in the Making by Joyce Meyer May 21, 2002
This is an outstanding book for upcoming leaders as well as those with current leadership responsibilities who want to be more effective in ministry and in secular business. Joyce offers practical advice from the Word and the school of hard knocks. It is a must read!
Great book for Ministry Leaders and Ministry team members Dec 31, 2001
I really enjoyed reading this book and revisiting scriptures that the author uses to support this book. The leadership tests described in the book gave me great insight into examining my cause and my role as a leader. Joyce Meyer provided great personal examples of what she has experienced as a Leader. I would definitely recommend this book for Ministry leaders. I have plans to read this book again. I have also shared what I have read with members of the ministry in which I serve.
As a side note. I once saw this book at a store. There were at least 10 or more copies. I went back a short time later and they were all gone.
A Must-Read For LEaders Jul 24, 2001
If you have a calling to be a leader in the ministry then Joyce has written an excellent book to help you along. This book is adapted from her 12-tape audio cassette album entitled "The Making Of A Leader", so if you enjoy this book you may want to purchase album from her website .... In this book she reveals the many different heart-types that are needed for leadership and the heart-types that need to be changed. She also offers encouragements to those who are struggling along the process of becoming a leader, showing us how God uses tests and trials to make us what He wants us to be. She also shares about the different kinds of tests that a leader in the making will have to undergo. There is also information on the importance of balance in our life. Most of all, Joyce encourages us that no matter how old you are, what is your track record, or how many problems you have, the potential to be all God wants you to be is still within you waiting to be unleashed. She also shares personal stories from her life that will make you laugh and help you along in the areas you hurt the most. A good read that will help you.
