Thomas Nelson Hand Me Another Brick, How Effective Leaders Motivate Themselves and Others

If you need principles of effective leadership, where would you turn? Swindoll goes right to the book of Nehemiah! Under that leader's godly direction and his capability for inspiring others, the wall of Jerusalem was rebuilt. In this revised edition, Swindoll shows how you can apply Nehemiah's methods for motivating people and overcoming discouragement for effective leadership today. Paperback.

Hand Me Another Brick brings to light the leadership qualities presented in the book of Nehemiah. Mr. Swindoll shows the reader the bench marks of a good leader. The book gradually goes over the process of how to prepare for large projects, the difficulties of these large projects, and the adversity others may show you will you are leading. He weaves in personal experiences with real life illustrations to solidify his points. The book is well written and concise with Scripture through out every chapter. It can some time read as a commentary of the book of Nehemiah. I personally enjoyed his examples and on how to deal with conflict in as a role of authority. I would recommend this book for leadership in ministries and churches.

Swindoll gives practical instructions on building character and developing leadership. He provides 15 helpful topical lessons based upon the Book of Nehemiah. As is typical for this author, the volume is well written and a beneficial read.

Read this book over 15 years ago (when it first came out) and I still recommend this book to anyone wanting to really focus their prayer life. It is a very good read and an easy study. Leaders need to stay the course when things get tough and sometimes out of sorts. This book will help you with ideas on knowing how to handle those situations.

I purchased this book as a requirement for a college class that I am taking. I would recommend this book to others in managemant and leadership positions, especially pastors. It contains good insight and encouraging words that will stay with you.

This is a good book by one of the more famous pastors in America. (I would not say its a great book, just because a great book, in my mind, is heavy in content and would be a slower read, but this is still a good book.) A few wonderful insights into Nehemiah's character and many practical suggestions about how we can learn to pray, organize, stand strong, and encourage like Nehemiah did so long ago.
