It is the contention of the author that the pulpit in the average church is a place in which crimes are committed every week. White writes with a desire to expose false teaching but also seek to write in a way that will encourage those who are seeking to be faithful to God's Word each week. This is a must read for all who are called to stand behind the pulpit, as well as those who are called to sit each week and listen.
Bill Robinson helps Christian leaders understand how to provide
effective leadership by highlighting five qualities that characterized
the leadership style of Jesus. He presents convincing arguments that
when leaders emulate these qualities, they will inspire and empower the
people they have been called to lead. Reflection and discussion
questions and assessment questions make this ideal for group use.
Conversational in tone and seasoned with real-life stories from his own
successes and failures as a leader, Robinson helps Christian leaders
wrestle with four questions that emerge from John's introduction of
Jesus, 'and the word became flesh and dwelt among us....' * Jesus dwelt
with those he led, how can I be closer to those I lead? * Jesus
disciples beheld him, how can I be more transparent with those I lead?
* The glory of Jesus was a reflection of his father, am I seeking my
own glory? * Jesus led with grace and truth, how can I lead with grace
