"Spiritual Leadership" by J. Oswald Sanders. A Short Review

Spiritual Leadership: Principles of Excellence For Every BelieverSpiritual Leadership: Principles of Excellence For Every Believer by J. Oswald Sanders
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sanders addresses the subject of leadership for congregations and on the mission field. His chapters are saturated with examples and anecdotes, as well as biblical examinations, exhortations and exegesis. The author draws from a wide variety of sources from John Wesley to Charles Finney to A.W. Tozer to Charles Hodge. His focus is sometimes on any leadership position within a church or Christian organization. At other times, he is zeroing in on Pastors of a congregation.

The chapters are normally short (4 pages), though others are more extended (8 pages). But the reading is not heavy, as much as it is devotional and geared to reflection. This book might be a good resource for a leadership retreat. As a matter of fact, our elders and deacons are reading it in preparation for a retreat in late 2016. It is a worthwhile read.
