I don’t read a lot of books on leadership or business. Entrepreneurial Leadership grabbed my attention because it was written from an explicitly Christian worldview. Plus my wife is an entrepreneur and I’ve dabbled in some entrepreneurial endeavors in the past.

What I really loved is the way Roosen and Stevens rooted their understanding of leadership in the creation narrative and the image of God. These currents flow through out the book and are foundational in their understanding. Out of this co
