Calling Christian Leaders: Rediscovering Radical Servant Ministry
1 in stock
John Stott found on his many travels that contemporary models of Christian leadership were often shaped more by culture than by Christ. In stark contrast, he urges that our view be determined by our view of the church, not the other way round.
Focusing on 1 Corinthians 1-4, he demonstrates the centrality of the theme of 'power through weakness.' He explains the role of the Holy Spirit in God's revelation and examines four of Paul's most striking models of ministry, each of which is an aspect of humility.
In contrast to the seductive styles of leadership being advocated by the wisdom of the world, he urges Christian leaders to be characterised above all else by "the meekness and gentleness of Christ."?
