Do others look to you for leadership? Do you face a major task or shoulder heavy responsibilities? Do you want to take your leadership skills to a higher level?

When Nehemiah confronted the task of rebuilding Jerusalem's wall, he was heartbroken by the damage he saw and nearly overwhelmed by the task that lay before him. Yet through the application of timeless leadership principles, Nehemiah completed this nearly impossible project, and laid a pattern for success which is just as valid for us today.

Charles Swindoll brings his sensible and straightforward style to offer a deeply spiritual approach to the role of leader. Whatever the context, secular or ministerial, he demonstrates how to size up a task, organize and motivate a team, and respond to inevitable obstacles such as these:

  • Unforeseen setbacks
  • Unrelenting deadlines
  • Criticism and outside resistance
  • Personality conflicts
  • Financial pressures and temptations
  • The insights that Swindoll draws from Nehemiah's wise administration will change your approach to leadership forever.

    Are you hungry to help others through leadership but don't feel like you have the authority?

    One of the greatest myths of leadership is that you must be in charge in order to lead. Great leaders don't buy it. Great leaders--whether they have the official authority or not--learn how to be an influential presence wherever they are.

    In How to Lead When You're Not in Charge, author and pastor Clay Scroggins explains the nature of leadership and what's needed to be a great leader--even when you answer to someone else.

    Drawing from biblical principles and his experience as the lead pastor of Buckhead Church in Atlanta, Georgia, Clay will help you nurture your vision and cultivate influence with integrity and confidence, even when you lack authority in your organization or ministry.

    In this book, Clay will walk you through the challenge of leadership and the four basic behaviors all great leaders have and how to cultivate them:

  • Leading yourself
  • Choosing positivity
  • Thinking critically
  • Rejecting passivity
  • With practical wisdom and humor, Clay Scroggins will help you free yourself to become the great leader you want to be so you can make a difference. Even when you're not in charge.

    Beware leaders...Read with caution...Life-changing principles and concepts lie ahead...This is a timely book that needs to be read, pondered, and applied by the Body of Christ. And here is why...All cultures are marred by sin, including our own culture and its concepts and models of leadership. The kingdom culture supersedes them all and is designed to permeate and infiltrate all cultures of the world. Stacy's book leads us through this maze with a radical new way of thinking, living, and leading in the kingdom culture as it confronts the cultures of the world. This style of kingdom leadership does not compete with culture-it confronts it. Stacy is very transparent in his attempt to live and practice this style of leadership. He brings together a powerful book in describing how to practically put these concepts and principles into practice.Dr. Terry TaylorPresident Emeritus, US Navigators

    Ask yourself this question: What type of character qualifies the people God chooses to use?



    The question itself assumes an atypical answer, simply because it leaves out so much. To ask only about one's character seems inadequate when defining a leader. We surely need to ask about character, but also about personality, communication skills, IQ, education, previous experience, and more... don't we?

    Crawford Loritts disagrees. He answers the question with four simple words: Brokenness, communion, servanthood, and obedience.

    These four traits form the framework for Leadership as an Identity. By examining each trait, Loritts undermines many pervasive assumptions about leadership that are unbiblical.

    According to Loritts, God doesn't look for leaders like the world does. He looks for disciples.

    This book brings the best of leadership theory and research together with biblical reflection and examples of leadership in action to offer a practical guide to Christian leaders.

    Combining expertise in leadership studies and biblical studies, Justin Irving and Mark Strauss explore how leadership models have moved from autocratic and paternalistic leader-centered models toward an increased focus on followers. The authors show how contemporary theories such as transformational leadership, authentic leadership, and servant leadership take an important step toward prioritizing and empowering followers who work with leaders to accomplish organizational goals. Irving and Strauss organize their book around "nine empowering practices," making it accessible to students, church leaders, and business leaders.

    Integrating solid research in leadership studies with biblical and theological reflection on the leadership ideas that are most compatible with Christian faith, this book is an important resource for all Christian students of leadership.
