This is an excellent resource for anyone involved in church leadership, but is not for only leaders. As the book demonstrates, one of the most important jobs of the leader is to develop a great group of people around him/her. This includes not only creating a team, but encouraging each member to grow and use their unique gifts and talents while building them up. This book looks at Paul and the unique circumstances in which he found himself along with the people around him. While this is not a guide with instructions, it helps leaders to examine who they are as a leader, take a look at the individuals on their team, analyze how the team works together and why they do the things they do.
Each chapter has questions at the end of it to aid in individual or group study. Whether you are a leader or not, the principles discussed in the book applies to anyone. I especially appreciated the chapter on the quest for common ground. There is much to think about and apply to our daily lives.
I received this book from Moody Publishers for this review.
