Spiritual Leadership Oct 31, 2008
Although the verbage and life examples used in this book are a little antiquated, the principles of leadership used are timeless. Certainly the wisdom diplayed by Sanders was aquired through tough failures and joyful success. We would do well to heed his experience and cash-in on his been there done that exposition.
Good Book for Christian Leaders Oct 24, 2008
One of the best-known and most-loved books on leadership in Christian circles in J. Oswald Sanders' Spiritual Leadership, first published in 1967. John MacArthur, Chuck Colson and John Maxwell all highly recommend it. The book has sold more than half-a-million copies since it first appeared. So, when I came to this book, I was expecting to read one of the best offerings ever on the subject of spiritual leadership.
The book didn't live up to the hype, at least for me. Maybe I need to read it again just to make sure I didn't miss something. This is a very good book - don't get me wrong. But a classic? I don't know.
Here's what I loved about the book. Sanders makes fantastic use of illustrations and quotations from other people. Sanders quotes so widely one wonders if he all he did was read! Terrific stuff from great sources. Another aspect of the book that was compelling to me was the emphasis on prayer and the upside-down nature of God's kingdom. Sanders has startling, delightful words that cut against the world's definition of success. All throughout the book, the reader gets the sense that spiritual leadership is costly and dangerous while at the same time rewarding and fulfilling.
Spiritual Leadership is a book of passion. The author's walk with God is evident throughout. I gleaned some good insights from Sanders' work and I enjoyed the book - enough to give it a solid recommendation. Is it a classic? I guess that's not for me to judge. But Spiritual Leadership is definitely a good book that deserves a wide audience.

The information in the book is outstanding. I have gone through secular management training and read other management and leadership books. This book has really helped me tie in the training I have had and my Christian faith to be a more effective leader.
A must read for all spiritual leaders Sep 25, 2008

I am an Area Director for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. My job is to cultivate leadership on middle and high school campus'. What an awesome and rewarding responsiblity. I've spent time as an Assistant Pastor and a Youth Pastor, I've read many books from Dale Carnegie to John Maxwell. J. Oswald Sanders has written a book for every spiritual leader. This book is for every demographic, and for leaders on every level. AWESOME!

Easy to read with good information on leadership in the church. I also like the "reflection questions" at the end of each chapter.
