Publisher's Summary

After examining the lives of hundreds of historical, biblical, and contemporary leaders, Dr. J. Robert Clinton gained perspective on how leaders develop over a lifetime. By studying the six distinct stages he identifies, you will learn to recognize and respond to God's providential shaping in your life, determine where you are in the leadership development process, identify others with leadership characteristics, and direct the development of future leaders.

This revised and updated edition includes several new appendixes and expanded endnotes, as well as an application section at the end of each chapter.

This is probably the best leadership development books for Christians that there is.

So much life research, study, and deep thought have gone into this book. He has thought and covered so many things that address barriers and experiences that are common to God’s development for Christian leaders. There is so much in here I will probably listen to it two more times, and purchase the most current edition. If you are in any sort of Christian leadership, or feel Gods leading in that way, part time or full, please invest in yourself and listen / read / apply this great work.

I need to listen to it again

it seemed like there was a lot of technical speak for a book on leadership. Lots of processes. But I think the principles were true I just had trouble staying focused while I listened to this book. it was valuable enough that I am not returning it, but it didn't connect well with me this time. it probably will the second time I listen.

Nothing like I expected

After reading the reviews & chapter titles I was excited to get this book. But it was disappointing, based solidly on human interest stories.

Should call it Theology of Christian Leadership

This is by far the best book I have read on the subject of Pastoral Leadership, or Christian Ministry Leadership. I was constantly getting that 'inner witness' to the truths that were being taught. I had that sense that I had discovered a work of greatness with this book. This will probably be one of the examples I use to explain the value of using a Seminary academic catalog to discover some of the better books on a topic for self study. Thank you Global University for requiring this text in some of your leadership classes. I have already purchased another print copy and given to a friend.

Well researched and presented

I appreciated the extent of research done in presenting these valuable leadership principles. It strenghtened the credibility of the author's solid message.
