Item description for Passionate Visionary: Leadership Lessons from the Apostle Paul by Richard S. Ascough & Charles A. Cotton...

No doubt Paul was the most dynamic figure in the early church, planting the faith across Europe and Asia. Now a New Testament scholar and an expert on organizational theory explore the apostle's methods for inspiring a fragile network of hesitant followers---and offer principles of transformational leadership for modern managers. Includes questions for reflection and discussion. 208 pages, softcover from Hendrickson.

Publishers Description
The Apostle Paul was a transformational genius. Indeed, the details of his life and ministry offer remarkable insights for modern leaders. Yet the curious and consistent omission among many biographies, testimonials and training manuals on leadership is the apostle who laid the foundation for the Christian Church as we know it. He took a new and struggling faith out into the world and built and sustained a fragile network by coaching, cajoling, and inspiring hesitant followers. Almost two thousand years later the heritage of the churches he founded continues in the faith communities of the Christian tradition.

Now a seasoned Bible scholar and an expert in organizational leadership and change offer principles for modern managers and leaders drawn from Paul's dynamic leadership style. In a unique blend of management theory and biblical scholarship, Ascough and Cotton demonstrate that Paul essentially wrote the book on how transformational leaders should operate. Thoroughly grounded in biblical studies and the academic study of leadership--yet written in a clear and readable style--their conclusions will challenge thinking in a variety of organizations.

- Sets individual biblical texts in their socio-cultural setting before demonstrating how they address contemporary leadership challenges.
- Offers questions for reflection and discussion that will help stimulate creative thinking about leadership in churches and other settings

Reviews - What do customers think about Passionate Visionary: Leadership Lessons from the Apostle Paul?

Good for life, helpful for business  Oct 24, 2007
I picked this book from an approved list for an Executive Leadership Training Program because I am already a biblical scholar and a Christian. One aspect of business that has bothered me for awhile is the cut-throat attitude of getting ahead at the expense of others. My moral compass wouldn't allow me to do that. This book reinforces aspects of my previous supervisor that I respect - sharing credit, building up ones followers to become leaders, not feeling threatened by the success of others, celebrating each person as a child of God and essential for the success of the whole, and maintaining ones integrity and honesty in challenging areas.

I would recommend this book for anyone that wants to see how the human condition has not changed much in 2000 years. Truths can be found in this book.
