What does it mean to be a leader?
Based on years of proven experience and scholarly insight, Tom Marshall gives fresh perspectives on the essence of New Testament leadership. He describes how and why it is distinct from management, administration, or ministry and offers clear guidance on topics such as: foresight, trust, criticism, caring, status, timing, failure, honor.
Understanding Leadership also emphasizes lifestyle and attitude, helping you foster interdependence while maintaining identity and integrity within your church, business, or community.
