Thought-provoking and inspiring

An indispensable guide for any leader - even more so for the Christian leader. Drawn from lessons within the scripture, it provides insight into the right thoughts, character and stature of a leader. Most importantly to be servant leaders. Only critique is that the many chapters were compiled into 4 for the audiobook which makes navigation difficult.

Solid gold!

This book will become one of my life's go-tos. The chapters on the Holy Spirit, prayer, and the constant call to lay down pride and take up servanthood is like water in the desert. God has richly blessed this work :)

The 1st book every Christian Leader Should Read

This classic is a must read for every leader in ministry. Pastor, Teacher, Doorman, Children's/Youth Ministry leaders, etc. It is filled with wisdom for life and ministry. The recording is read rather quickly; I slowed it down to .75 and it easier to catch and understand.

The one MAJOR problem!!!!!!!

I really enjoyed this book. The only problem I had was that NONE of the chapters were divided. There are 22 chapters in the book, but they're all divided into 4. I had to manually insert clips, and then label them according to the chapter. A little more work than I'd expected to do. But other than that, the audiobook was great!

Buy it now! Top 5 of my last 50 books read.

Spiritual Leadership is powerful, deep and densely compacted with substance. I take notes when listening and this book had me stopped every few seconds writing notes. Having read or listened to 50 books in the past six months, this is one of the top 5. Will be listening to this again, worth re-reading every year in my opinion. There are a multitude of applications for spiritual leadership. The wisdom in this book will benefit anyone involved in ministry of any capacity. The material is also relevant to workplace leadership and behavior. My favorite chapters are 12: The Leader and Time and 13: The Leader and Reading. The chapter on reading contains practical applications on what to read, how to read, and how to get more out of what you read.
