Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Peter Scazzero. Your Christian Vocation in All of Life.
In my opinion the very best few chapters came near the end of the book. Showing of reviews. The Leader and his reading.
Christians who doubt this should read some of the benefits of reading that Sanders listed. This classic further pinpoints the goal of christian living, which is missions and soul-winning; it does this by revealing the passion and motivations of great christian leaders of the past; men and women who invested their lives for the cause of Jesus Christ and his Kingdom.
Its brevity and accessibility, along with its appeal to Scripture and examples of great leaders throughout history, make it a terrific place to begin reading about the uniqueness of Christian leadership. This is a must read! So much of leadership focuses on the individual who is the leader, but this book managed to balance things out towards the end. Leadership always faces natural human inertia and opposition. It requires patient, careful instruction and prayerful, personal guidance over considerable time.
A true leader influences others spiritually only because the Spirit works in and through him to a greater degree than in those he leads. Christianity needs to put forth a powerful voice to be heard above the cacophony of immorality and deception in much of today's leadership.

This is a good introduction and overview of the differences between a leader in the eyes of the world and a leader in the eyes of God. At times Sanders can come across as legalistic, and perhaps he is, but the call to a high standards that he brings is something I need to eat repeatedly and often stirred my soul.
