Gospel-Centred Leadership

Our world is awash with leadership trainers and gurus, claiming to show how people can do their job better.

But Christians only have one role model for leadership – the Lord Jesus Christ. And the leadership he calls us to is radically different to the kind of leadership the world looks for. It is wise, intentional and dynamic. But it is also humble and servant hearted.

A real mixed bag. Some of it is fantastic: it's well structured, there's much good solid common sense and it's easily read in short sittings with questions giving food for thought. But it is hamstrung by assumptions: that three words in one book of the Bible control so much about leadership, and that a conservative view of gender in leadership is Biblical. Heaven knows how an egalitarian woman leader picking up this book will feel on further investigation.

Helpful for discussions between leaders. Good principles outlined. Perhaps the most useful sections are the chapters towards the end, ie the chapter on leadership (what it means to lead), and the practical sections on making decisions and what to do when it all goes wrong.

This is a really beneficial series of studies on leadership. The format is interactive, the content is ruthlessly biblical, and the reflections speak from the considerable leadership experience of the author. I have benefitted enormously from this book and look forward to working through it with others in the future. A good proof read would improve it even more.

Timmis has given us a concise, biblically and surprisingly fresh approach to leadership. Great resource for a group study.
