Description

When it comes to leadership, there is much to be learned from empirical research and from the intuitive reflections of marketplace leaders.  But without the entirety of Scripture as our supreme and sufficient authority, flawed views of human nature and deficient perspectives on God’s purposes will skew our views of leadership. That’s why a Christ-centered, kingdom-focused vision of leadership must precede any principles of leadership that derive from human wisdom. The aim of this book is to provide a foundation for the study of leadership that looks at leadership with both feet firmly planted in the whole of Scripture. This foundational vision for Christian leadership has emerged from examining the story line of Scripture as a whole, interpreting biblical texts in light of their historical, epochal, and canonical contexts.
