Justin A. Irving, Mark L. Strauss – Leadership in Christian Perspective


Leadership in Christian Perspective brings the best of leadership theory and research together with biblical reflection and examples of leadership in action. Combining expertise in leadership studies and biblical studies, Justin Irving and Mark Strauss explore how leadership models have moved from autocratic and paternalistic leader-centered models toward an increased focus on followers. They show how contemporary theories such as transformational leadership, authentic leadership, and servant leadership take an important step toward prioritizing and empowering followers who work with leaders to accomplish organizational goals. Organized around “nine empowering practices,” this practical guide is accessible to all Christian students of leadership. It integrates solid research in leadership studies with biblical and theological reflection on the leadership ideas that are most compatible with Christian faith, making it an important resource for professors and students in leadership and pastoral theology courses, pastors and church leaders, and Christian business leaders.

The background and vocal foibles (like smacking the gums) should be edited and redone as needed. Too much attention to detail can take more time than its worth for a quick non-fiction like this, but it still needs another once over and probably a bigger investment in sound equipment. Its good kind of extended sermon that feels like its being read aloud to you at the kitchen table.
