Calling Christian Leaders: Biblical Models of Church, Gospel and Ministry
1 in stockCompare
John Stott has found in his travels that contemporary models of Christian leadership are often shaped more by culture than by Christ. In stark contrast, he urges that our view of leadership must be determined by our view of the Church, and not the other way round. He demonstrates how central is the theme of ‘power through weakness’. He expounds the role of the Holy Spirit in God’s revelation, and he examines four of Paul’s most striking models of ministry, each of which is an aspect of humility. Over against seductive styles of Leadership being advocated by the wisdom of the world, John Stott urges Christian leaders to be characterised above all else by ‘the meekness and the gentleness of Christ’.
