Recommends it for: Christian Leaders
Recommended to John by: Timothy Gunnells
First, the good. This book would be a good first book on leadership for someone to read. I think it is entry-level and covers some of the most basic approaches to Christian Leadership. The first section encourages the devotional / spiritual life of the leader. Without that, there isn't much "Christian" in Christian leadership!

Encouraging

This was an assigned textbook for my spiritual leadership course. While it was encouraging most of it was not new information to me regarding spiritual leadership as it deals with character issues and motives. Overall I would recommend this book to others.

A good read, meaningful in all the right places. For me, the "hit home" places were late in the text. I appreciated the examination of failure issues and strategies for pressing through criticism.
