Item description for Biblical Leadership by Matthew Williams & Ken Collier...
Overview There are many different types of leaders--leaders in the business world, in government, in the home, and in the local church. Sadly, many times leadership has been completely contrary to what the Bible teaches. Many leaders are focused on what they can get from their positions of authority rather than on what they can give to the works in which they are involved. While some view it as a tool for popularity and power, leadership is a privilege. Leadership requires responsibility. We need biblical leaders who are people of integrity and humility--leaders who are willing to be different.

Very Helpful Perspective Feb 8, 2008
I've read a number of books on leadership, and even on servant leadership. What I like about this book is that it especially resonates with those who work with teens and could be used in mentoring teens who are interested in biblical leadership.
Straight From the Heart of Two Servant Leaders Dec 7, 2007
Being in the process of writing a book on Servant Leadership, I have read or at least begin to read every book I can find on this extremely important Scriptural subject. Ken Collier & Matt William's book "Biblical Leadership" is by two long time Chritian leaders who have had years of practicing Biblically based servant leadership. Their practical insights into the subject come with many firsthand illustrations of how they have walked the walk of servant leadership, which gives them an authentic testimony as they talk the talk of how to practice Scriptural leadership. According to the book's authors a Biblically based servant leader is a different kind of leader, who serves a different head, has a different heart and goal, etc. Each chapter details a different character quality of a genuine servant of God.
One of the numerous books I read on spiritual leadership spouted very new age ideas and so I never finished reading it. The two other best books I've read on the subject are "Upside Down The Paradox of Servant Leadership," by Stacy Rinehart and "Spritual Leadership," by J. Oswald Sanders.
