The issues of being a leader and the questions of leadership characteristics are as old as mankind. From the fall in the garden of Eden through the news of today, we often see the devastating results from listening to and following false leaders. We also know past and present leaders whose tremendous examples are worthy of our attention and imitation.
Where do we go to increase our knowledge of how to be an effective and influential leader? How do we learn to model the characteristics of a leader with integrity? If we search Amazon for a book on leadership, more than 60,000 choices appear. Yet as Christ followers, we have one book, the Holy Bible, that offers the very best examples of what leadership looks like through stories of both great and poor leaders.
