Many of the books written on leadership today are on the whole a collection of sound business principles and practices. In fact much of what is written is what might be called creative common sense. I don't say that to detract from the value of such publications or advice. Much of it is needed in church life as well as in the corporate world.
However, it can be easy to forget the essentially spiritual foundation on which Christian leadership should be based. We are called to be preachers, teachers and healers, not just strategists and planners.
I recently read a collection of articles by the late Derek Prince on leadership. It really is thought provoking to hear what he has to say. Even the titles of his talks take you in a very different direction to what most would offer today as a series of talks on leadership.
