Evangelicalism would be well served if pastors would throw out all the "Christianized" worldly management books, read this book, then follow the Word of God and the Spirit of God. If one does not experience the leading of the Spirit as Blackaby relates, then he would do his flock a favor if he withdraws from ministry until he does. This is not a book for those who hold to the theology of "Decision Making and the Will of God" or to modern church "management" philosophies. A companion book would be The Courage to Be Protestant, by David F. Wells. Evangelicals need to say farewell to syncretism with secular business philosophies.

Blackabys addressed spiritual leadership as a God given gift. The Holy Spirit reveals Gods will to people and equips them to lead. An effective leader should be hard working and have a desire to learn. Leaders should strive to move people to where God wants them to be .This will be done through the heart of prayer, having a servant hood spirit, being visionary, being prayerful, being strategic, prayerful, able to know your limitations and then you delegate. Leadership is not about positions but relationships. Leaders should lead exemplary lives and avoid the ten pitfalls mentioned it the textbook. Henry and Richard Blackaby wrote Spiritual Leadership to help Christian leaders in business; politics and the pastorate develop the qualities of spiritual leadership. Spiritual Leadership will help you understand God's design for leadership and will enable you to lead God's people towards the fulfillment of His purposes. The authors focus upon a leader's relationship with God as the key to effective leadership. From this relationship flow a leaders visions, goals, influence, and decision-making. All of the basic leadership principles are covered in this book, but they are addressed from the perspective of one's relationship with God. This perspective is what makes this work so unique and so valuable. The authors conclude that since "God is on mission," the task of leaders is to join Him in that mission and bring people along to join that mission (70). In light of this reality, leaders are urged to make decisions with the reminder that they will give an account before God. The authors remind the readers that the goal is bringing God glory while the reward is finding joy in knowing that they pleased GodI would recommend leaders to use these principles to help them develop their leadership skills. All leaders including family people should read this book often.

Pastorial teaching style, content is relevant to current state of Christendom. Summary of major points at the end of each chapter is practical for personal reflection and group discussion.

As a former deacon of a church, I wish I had read this book on leadership while serving my term. The insight and wisdom provide from this book would have gone miles in helping me understand my role as a spiritual leader within the church.

This one is still my all time favorite when it comes to leadership books. It actually makes it kind of hard to read some of the other more "popular" leadership gurus. It's just too bad that this one has been a bit overshadowed. I've introduced it to many people and have yet to have a person not be really enthused about it. The "Interactive Study" edition is also an excellent shorter version of this book.

This book is a master piece on leadership. As a very studious pastor, I have read volumes on leadership and this one stands out to be the best. It brings out the gems on the most sought out subject. I am reading it for the 3rd time in a row.

With all the books from Drucker, Ziglar, Maxwell, Covey, Hayford and others it is easy to transfer their thoughts to yourself and here now is a book that says STOP THAT! Focus on others and move forward. This book is not for the bookshelf it is for the night stand or nearby your reading chair! Give a copy to a friend.

This work by Richard and Henry Blackaby is the absolute best book on leadership I have read. Having recently graduated with a doctorate in evangelism and church growth, and possessing a passion for reading pastoral material, I have read numerous books on leadership. All of them pale in comparison to this volume.The authors focus upon a leader's relationship with God as the key to effective leadership. From this relationship flow a leader's vision, goals, influence, and decision-making. All of the basic leadership principles are covered in this book, but they are addressed from the perspective of one's relationship with God. This perspective is what makes this work so unique and so valuable.I strongly recommend this book to all pastors, church leaders and even to Christian leaders in secular organizations as a "must read." Before reading the volumes of material available from Maxwell, Schaller and other noted leadership authors, try this one! It will transform the way you view leadership as a Christian.

Head and shoulders above anything on being a leader that I've read, and I've read a few. This book puts your eyes on the Lord to be your leader not on the ways of men. It takes leadership back to the Holy Spirit and out of the hands of worldly ideas for leaders.
