Lead Like Christ by A.W. Tozer

 


Lead Like Christ

What Does Christ-Centered Leadership Look Like?

As a Christian, does your leadership approach look any different from that of those who don't follow Christ? Throughout the Bible, God shows us what leadership looks in His kingdom, and sometimes it can seem upside-down. The first shall be last. The master shall be the servant. But how can we apply these counterintuitive truths in our world today?

Rather than focusing on the nuts and bolts of management, Lead like Christ uses the book of Titus to take a close look at what biblical leadership entails. Using Paul's instructions to his young ministry partner as a guide, Tozer takes us through themes of grace, servanthood, spiritual boldness, and humility toward the Word of God. This foundation will lead to powerful, long-lasting change in both your own leadership role today as well as in God's eternal kingdom.

 

A.W. Tozer (1897-1963) was a self-taught theologian, pastor, and writer whose powerful words continue to grip the intellect and stir the soul of today's believer. He authored more than forty books. The Pursuit of God and The Knowledge of the Holy are considered modern devotional classics. Get Tozer information and quotes at www.twitter.com/TozerAW.


First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to James L. Snyder, who complied and edited A.W. Tozer's work and his publisher for sending me a copy of "Lead Like Christ" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

“Lead Like Christ” by A.W. Tozer is an incredible read for every Christian!  As Christians, we are called to make disciples and spread the Gospel.  That makes every Christian a leader!  This book provides great encouragement, training and wisdom from the Scriptures to enlighten the Christian regarding our role in leadership.

Nineteen chapters on different aspects of leadership are available to read straight through or jump around to different topics.  My suggestion would be to read the work straight through, then keep it on your reference shelf to refer back to specific chapters as you need to.  This book is a great gift to give to others and yourself.
