Publisher's Summary

The world is changing at almost breakneck speed, and the leaders who succeed will be those who can marshal their most powerful resources in the most effective ways. With principles embedded in spirituality, ethics, and strength, acclaimed motivator Laurie Beth Jones brings us Jesus, CEO, a bold yet sensitive inspirational guide for leadership success.

After years in business, Jones was struck by the notion that Jesus' leadership approach ran counter to most of today's management styles. In Jesus, CEO, she explains that by harnessing the three strengths behind Jesus' leadership techniques (the strengths of self-mastery, action, and relationships), we can become the empowered leaders that the next millennium will require.

Following the example of Jesus, a "CEO" who took a disorganized "staff" of twelve and built a thriving "enterprise," Jesus, CEO details a simple, profound, fresh, and often humor-filled approach to motivating and managing others.

    "Good contents, but monotonous narration"

    The contents are good, but the author narrates in monotone and too fast.
    Why don't you make a full version of this audible book having professional narrator.

    "Dont waste your time"
    What would have made Jesus, CEO better?

    If the author actually read the bible.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Laurie Beth Jones?

    No


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Jesus, CEO?

    I would remove references to Jesus because they are a mischaracterization of who He is.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is theologically unsound in its proclamation of who Jesus is. This is a poor example of proof-texting that reduces the biblical view of Jesus into a man who the author wishes to portray as a CEO. There are undertones of a feminist agenda behind many of the points Jones discusses. Jesus wasn't a feminist, His views would line up with a complimentarianist view of gender. Have you not read that He who made them made them male and female from the beginning. I do agree that women are much needed in the corporate world. As a management book it provides an adequate view on what a leader should and shouldn't be. None of the points discussed in the book required the use of Jesus to make. It’s as if the author wrote a management book then inserted Jesus into portions of it. The obvious flaw in the book is the blatant neglect of the transformational power of the Holy Spirit in the life of the disciples (not staff). Jesus is not successful because he was a great leader; He is the second person of the Trinity and beyond compare to any leader. Jesus came to die as a sinless propitiation for our sins that we might have eternal life.

    "Ok, kind of disappointed"

    I was hoping this book would reference versus in the Bible more. More details about how Jesus lead would have been great. It was worth reading, just not what I was looking for.
