Next Generation Leader: 5 Essentials for Those Who Will Shape the Future
Jonathan McCarthy's review
May 04, 2019
This book has some really great pragmatic advice in it and Stanley writes in a very accessible style. However, I think most of it could be reduced to a bullet-point three-page article. Stanley's advice is very solid when it comes to basic leadership principles. His method of approach to the Bible as a backdrop for these principles, however, is at times concerning. Most troublesome is his usage of the David and Goliath story. Stanley states that "David's leadership was established through his courage - not his talent or even his calling by God." (p. 58). Stanley ought to know better. The real hero of the Bible is God, not any of the flawed characters He chose to use. Still a decent quick read. Some good principles.
