It is increasingly being acknowledged that current generation of church leaders are inundated with well-intentioned but nonetheless economically-defined leadership measures and strategies which threaten to corrupt the basic thrust of ministry and pervert the common life known as church.

Reflecting theologically on the nature of leadership at the same time as considering the reality of its practicalities, this Study Guide seeks to call it back to theological essentials, locate it in the unique context of the Church, and then re-address modern pressures and needs from within a decidedly Christian framework.

Resisting the urge to instruct with a more polemical voice, the SCM Studyguide to Church Leadership will encourage ordinands and trainee church leaders to reassess modern pressures and priorities and to re-orient creatively around the callings, giftings, and approaches that are suitable to Christ and particular to the Church.

Review quote

`In a world awash with books on leadership this is a standout contribution. Beautifully crafted, biblically driven and thoughtfully provocative, it will aid careful reflection on how to lead...a must read for anyone wrestling with Church leadership.' -- James Lawrence `This profound exploration of the distinct calling and work of those entrusted with Church leadership is the fruit of rich theological reflection and a good deal of personal experience. Drawing on insights from Scripture and the wider Christian tradition it offers both a critical framework for understanding the nature of leadership as well as sound practical wisdom to enable the faithful performance of some key leadership tasks.' -- Ian Parkinson
