There's a leadership crisis in the church.

Every leadership model claims to have all the answers to the challenges of leadership. Each perspective emphasizes certain qualities, and we search desperately for answers in the absence of clear direction. But there's no simple leadership formula that meets every need we have in life and ministry.

The Triune God is represented more truthfully by a team of leadership. This one notion will itself critique the Western desire to find its one gifted leader, an unfortunate perpetuation of the great man myth. In fact, “the complexity of the world is a witness to the complexity and greatness of our God,” (p. 22) which is to say that a complex God has given way to a complex world that cannot be guided by narrow leadership but, rather, a complex one. This is the essence of Mosaic Leadership. The au ...more

The chapters on courage and collaboration stood out to me (and the rest fell flat). My guess is that you might be attracted to the chapters that best fit your leadership style...which is a shame since the author builds a case for the full mosaic.

The charts, figures, and tables were great. The summary material and exercises were good as well. An extensive bibliography is included.

It was fair. Honestly just seemed like more of the same in this recent slew of books on leadership. Nothing new was presented nor nothing overtly helpful.

Two questions I walked away with were: Did he really read all of the books and articles footnoted? And has he really read all the books suggested st the end of his book?

I felt less excited about leadership after reading the book. It lacked urgency and drive to become a greater leader, and replaced it with a floating sense of being a leader. Love the cover art though. Aesthetic is 5/5.

The first word that comes to my mind about this book is, “Wow!” Next to Paul David Tripp’s book, “Dangerous Calling”, no book has challenged me, comforted me, and convicted me more about leading others on mission than Daniel’s and Jared’s book, “Leadership Mosaic.” Leadership books can be big on vision, but lack on practicality. Others can be heavy on application with little talk about vision and philosophy. This book challenges leaders to dream and to trust God for the future but admonishes us ...more

What makes a good Christian leader? Montgomery offers five traits of any such successful leader.

First, they are convictional. They embody what they believe. They seek to follow the Word and will of God by practicing what they preach.
Second, they are creative. Not as in "artsy" but as in "imagining the way forward." This is associated with "vision," which seems more highly desired than anything else in leaders these days.
Next, they are courageous. They take risks. They try to see where God is alr

Some really good content. The best part of this book for me was that it was written in such a way that it makes it easy to use it as a resource later on.
