While books and articles on leadership abound, most of them are written by "successful" men who look at the world through the lens of a Western business model. The standard for success is based on the bottom line--financial growth in both the personal and corporate realms. This perspective has infected Christian leadership literature as well. In Leadership Reconsidered, Ruth A. Tucker calls for a revised definition--one that abandons the love of power and success for the eternal value of legacy.
She challenges the assumption that a leader must by definition have followers, be an extrovert, crave recognition, and dominate others. Instead, legacy encompasses the values of behind-the-scenes influence that are available to everyone and last beyond the grave. This unique and refreshing perspective on leadership is accessible and engaging and will make an impact on anyone who takes it to heart.
Ruth A. Tucker (Ph.D., Northern Illinois University) has spent more than twenty years teaching and was the first woman to hold a faculty position at Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
She is the author of many books, including From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya: A Biographical History of Christian Missions; Leadership Reconsidered: Becoming a Person of Influence; Daughters of the Church: Women and ministry from New Testament times to the present;God Talk; Another Gospel: Cults, Alternative Religions, and the New Age Movement; Parade of Faith: A Biographical History of the Christian Church, and Walking Away from Faith.
