Publisher's Summary

In The Book on Leadership, best-selling author, pastor, and teacher John MacArthur sets the record straight. Leadership does not come from a job title. It isn�t a matter of personality or charisma. And it isn�t the same thing as iron-fisted authority. True leadership � the kind that refuses to bend to a shifting, fickle world � comes from a much deeper source.

Based on the writings of one of the most effective spiritual leaders of all time � the apostle Paul � MacArthur presents the "26 Characteristics of a True Leader." Whether you are a business leader, civic leader, church leader, parent, teacher, or student, the life of Paul will empower you to unleash your own capacity for leadership.

Worth Reading

Many Christians look to corporations or political figures as models for leadership in the church. Most of us who are Christians have been in churches that choose deacons, elders and even pastors based on personal charisma, polish, or congregational politics. MacArthur cuts through all of the worldly influence to paint a picture of leadership based on the Scripture alone.

It is biblical based, to the point, easy to understand. Highly recommended.

Solid, Biblical, Convicting, and Edifying.

Much of what I learned about the doctrine of grace, as well as leadership, I learned from John MacArthur in the earlier years of my ministry. Listening to this audiobook in his own voice was like listening to one of his sermons. No-nonsense Biblical truth and teaching examples of Biblical leadership. A must read for those who desire to lead like true servant of Jesus.

Super Practical

I typically choose books read by the author. This is one of those books. Listening to books read by the author are so much better, because they understand the material best and communicate much more clearly through the narration than someone else. MacArthur works through each principle starting with a header and then explains it. This book is like "How to Win Friends and Influence People," because of how it is structured. There are maybe 30 separate principles MacArthur talks about. I will need to get a pad and pencil to listen again. This is a very meaty book.

thought provoking

as much as I admire the apostle Paul and see him as a spiritual leader I never really thought about him as a leader in general. I think this is a good book for any Christian.

Over and over...

A book that you can read, over and over again. Paul said “I am all things to all men.” This book explains how to lead men that are willing to follow.

Leaders lead

Great advice from one of the best theologians to do it. I don't think I agree 100% with any scholar but he is spot on here.
