Customer Reviews for Upside Down: The Paradox of Servant Leadership
Review 1 for Upside Down: The Paradox of Servant Leadership
Date:January 11, 2002
In "Upside Down," Dr. Rinehart shows that many churches are rooted in a traditional authoritarian leadership model closely akin to that of the modern business world. Dr. Rinehart eloquently contrasts that to the Biblical New Testament model of authority that Jesus displayed, one of service. Though this book is intended as a pastoral resource, I've shared it with pastors and lay persons alike. Some have purchased quantities to share with other pastors and friends. However, many others find this book very challenging! I recommend this book to both pastors and laity with open minds and hearts.

This is an incredibly thought provoking book which illustrates how often worldy leadership models infiltrate church/ministry settings. It is a great read, especially for those in leadership positions.
