For too long we have looked for leadership lessons from experts who only believe in fifty percent of reality. As Christ followers we believe in both a visible material realm, and an invisible spiritual realm. We must stake our claim as those who live and walk in both the visible and invisible worlds simultaneously. To lead the unique organism that is the body of Christ, whether in a church, a business or our families, true spiritual leadership must know how to navigate both of these realms, and in particular, understand the intersection between these two worlds. Knowing only how to impact the world we see may actually impair our ability to impact the world we do not see. If all of our knowledge and experience is from and about the visible world, we are operating half-blind as kingdom citizens. Think Differently, Lead Differently is that guidebook that points us toward the intersection of the material and spiritual realms, and teaches the important ideas and skills to lead in both.

The analogies and guidance for leadership principles in the ministry are very helpful and insightful. Bob Hamp understands Ministry very well and his years of experience in it are valuable in describing how to increase efficiency and effectiveness in the right areas of focus.
It's not so much that there was any "new" information. Rather that he puts a LOT of pieces, we have all heard our whole lives, into a new pile... And as he turns your perspective to see them from a different light. You find that they are not just thrown into a pile, they are already organized and put into the bookshelf that you can start gleaning from today!
