Contains a few paragraphs of interesting material. Otherwise, it qualifies for my newly-coined category, a "How to Make a Peanut Butter Sandwich book," which relays information far within the realm of common sense at around a 6th-grade level, with an abundance of generic sentences and dull adjectives like "great" and "best." Jesus is an intimate, innovative, and, in every way, superlative leader. It would be fair to say that His nature was inestimably understated by these authors.

"Who is the greatest leader in history? Of all the names that might be given in response to that question, one name stands above all the rest: Jesus Christ."
- from the introduction of "The Leadership Lessons of Jesus: A Timeless Model for Today's Leaders" by Bob Briner and Ray Pritchard.

This newly redesigned edition of The Leadership Lessons of Jesus is expanding to include more than seventy unique easy-length readings that explore and adapt the individual techniques that made

This is a short book in that it is 150 small pages of content and it could be read in only a few sittings, however, I think that the value of the book would be lost.
Jesus was a great leader and that can be seen in the incredible way He changed the world and those around Him. He established the church which has run for around 2,000 years and it has grown an incredible amount in that time. Can we glean insights that we can use on a regular basis to model His leadership style, to the best of our a

It is rare that I review an older book, but this one is so good I wanted to bring attention to this timeless book on leadership. The Leadership Lessons Of Jesus is easy to read—I read the whole book on 4th of July. But it is also a book to savor and digest all the wisdom found in the 240 pages. I found myself highlighting many passages throughout the book. You can see some of the quotes here.

Bob Briner and Ray Pritchard bring a refreshing look at how the greatest leader in the world has provided

Recommends it for: anyone in leadership
Jesus is the best example of leadership that transforms a whole world. His leadership is timeless in that not only did he empower those in his day, but in the genrations that have followed since and to come. Simple leadership skills that can easily be applied. Digestible small steps that can transform the way I lead. Leadership is inspiring others to do more than they thought they were capable of to fulfil a purpose that is greater than yourself.

I read this book every year because it is so powerful. In here we are not only presented Jesus as the best leader of all of time and space but also how we can emulate him. If I can summarise its message : leadership is about people!

Great for helping us remember that the mission Jesus came to earth with of deriving God's good new was passed down to 12 He mentored anyhow important it is to pass these down for the next generation as well.

A very well written book that details leadership lessons from the life and teachings of Jesus. I recommend it to anyone in a leadership position.

So far I like this book. Jesus clearly had a huge impact on the world. The short (2-3 pages) chapters make this an easy and quick read.
Charles Rogers
This book is a great read - Would be very good for any church group lesson. I believe the author wrote a study guide that parallels the book.

The authors takes practical aspects from the gospels and applies them to everyday situations. This is a good one a day book to use as a daily devotion I would recommend this for any leader.
