Reviews - What do our customers think?
Spiritual Leadership  Apr 15, 2008
Easy to read with good information on leadership in the church. I also like the "reflection questions" at the end of each chapter.
Not A Theocracy  Jan 19, 2008
'The supernatural nature of the church demands a leadership that rises above the human.' writes J Oswald Chambers. Let's be clear: he is not calling for charismatic chaos.

'The overriding need of the church, if it is to discharge its obligation to the rising generation, is for a leadership that is authoritative, spiritual and sacrificial.'

As God leads us in the Last Days, it is imperative that we seek to be led by His Word as a church. Current practices should bring glory to God and ensure that our witness to this world is one that reflects our lives submitted to His holy Word, and to the lordship of Christ Jesus. We are called to imitate the faith of others who went before us, remaining faithful to the exposition and adherence of biblical teaching - not the world's. Leaders should be the first to yield to this, humble themselves and teach it with the clarity the Bible demands.
Clear Mandate For Biblical Servanthood & Other Virtues  Nov 18, 2007
'Paul did not insist on maturity as a qualification to lead the newly established Church at Crete, (Titus 1:5-9) where mature members were not present. In the early stages, we cannot insist on maturity, but every care must be taken that those developing the work be stable in character, spiritual in outlook, and not ambitious for position.' pg 44

'Wisdom involves knowing God and the subtleties of the human heart. Wisdom gives a leader balance and helps to avoid eccentricity and extravagance. If knowledge comes by study, wisdom comes from the Holy Spirit.' pg 57

'Wisdom is nine-tenths a matter of being wise in time, said Theodore Roosevelt. Most of us are too often wise after the event.' pg 57

'The one who acquires good sense loves himself,
one who safeguards understanding finds success.' Prov 19:8
One of the Best Books on Leadership yet Written!  May 14, 2007
Sanders is a contemporary of CS Lewis in Britain, and thus his book shares some of his colloquialisms.

In addition, he quotes richly from brilliant men, proving further that little else need be written about Christianity that hasn't already been written. It just has to be rediscovered.

I strongly recommend this book if you are looking past what pop leadership books have to offer.
A Classic Book on True Biblical Leadership  May 9, 2007
When I most recently picked up this book, it wasn't the first time I had been exposed to it. In fact, prior to reading it this last time, I think I had read the first 8 chapters twice before: once with a group at college and once with my pastor. I can't remember the exact reasons we didn't read the whole book each time; it certainly wasn't for lack of excellent content, that's for sure!

I would often joke with people that it was useless for me to attempt to highlight or underline excerpts from the book because I ended up underlining just about every sentence! Sanders' wisdom and spiritual insight abound and his diligence in study is amazing as demonstrated by the wealth of quotes provided in each chapter. He was certainly a man who exemplified Proverbs 10:14, "Wise men store up knowledge."

Sanders begins in the first chapter by encouraging those who desire to be leaders by maintaining, from Scripture, that ambition is not sinful if if it is guided by a desire to glorify God and tempered by sincere servanthood and genuine humility. Sanders investigates several different aspects of true spiritual leadership through the remaining 21 chapters and even includes highly practical chapters on the leader's use of time (chapter 12) and the leader and his reading and study disciplines (chapter 13).

An especially helpful and heart-searching section is found on pages 36-37 where Sanders poses 27 essential questions a leaders must ask in order to truly investigate his or her leadership potential. For example, he asks, "Have you ever broken a bad habit...Do you depend on the praise of others to keep you going...Are you tactful...Do you welcome responsibility" as well as a host of other excellent questions.

Overall, I found Spiritual Leadership to be very helpful, practical and extremely challenging. It is one to read and reread often!
