Publishers Description From the pages of an ancient story about a young dreamer and his coat of many colors comes profound principles about leadership from the life of Joseph. The reader will feel the sting of the desert sands and the coolness of the lavish palaces of Egypt as important questions are raised and answered. Why were fourteen chapters of Genesis dedicated to the story of this one man (the 11th of 12 sons, a hated dreamer)? Where did Joseph learn the lessons of forgiveness, integrity and leadership? How did he persevere with patience and obedience when it seemed all was lost? The author reveals the heart and soul of a man who became an example of How God Trains Leaders. The Joseph School of Leadership takes the reader along for the journey that took Joseph from the ?pit? to ?Prime Minister?. There has never been a more critical time in history for a new generation of leaders to answer God's call. This insightful book about leadership training should be in the hands of every pastor, teacher, business leader and caring parent.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Joseph School of Leadership: How God Trains Leaders?
A must read for those learning about leadership & being a disciple Nov 23, 2005
I loved reading more about the story of Joseph, and I especially like Dr. Lineberry's style of writing and teaching. It is more than reading a bible study. Rather, you see Joseph as a person, not just a character. What must have been going through Joseph's mind at each step? What would I have done if I were in his place?
The lesson translates well to today to teach us how we can grow to be leaders despite (or because of) unfavorable circumstances. The way Dr. Lineberry intertwines Joseph's stages of life with stories from the author's own life make the book very easy to read and relate to. It helps the reader to see how God can turn struggles into something great, as He did for Joseph and the people of Egypt.
This is a great read for all ages. I see this as a book that can be used for teens and young adults training to become leaders, and also for those who are older looking to make sense of life's challenges.
