To aspire to leadership is an honorable ambition. (1 Timothy 3:1 NEB)
The need for talented, vigorous leaders in the church today cannot be overemphasized. Such times demand the active service of men and women who are guided by God and devoted to Jesus Christ.
With more than 750,000 copies in print, Spiritual Leadership stands as a proven classic for developing such leadership. In these pages, J. Oswald Sanders presents the key principles of leadership in both the temporal and spiritual realms, illustrating his points with examples from Scripture and the biographies of eminent men of God (Moses, Nehemiah, Paul, David Livingstone, Charles Spurgeon, and others). He writes that even natural leadership qualities are God-given, and their true effectiveness can only be reached when they are used to the glory of God. Featured topics include:
The cost of leadership
The responsibilities of leadership
Tests of leadership
The qualities and criteria of leadership
The art of reproducing leaders
The one indispensable requirement of leadership
New to this updated edition are a For Reflection section and a growth-empowering study guide designed to enhance the usefulness of Spiritual Leadership as a training tool for future generations.
