The Apostle Paul was a transformational genius. The details of his life offer remarkable insights for present day leadership in the church. This is the starting point for this new book by an expert in organizational leadership and change and a noted bible scholar. Leadership is a popular topic. Yet the curious and consistent omission among all the biographies, testimonials and training manuals is Paul of Tarsus - the apostle who "founded" the Christian Church as we know it. He took a new and struggling faith out into the world with nothing but faith and passion. He built and sustained a fragile network by coaching, cajoling and inspiring hesitant followers. Almost two thousand years later the heritage of the churches he founded continues in the faith communities of the Christian tradition. This book illustrates Paul's singular contribution to the idea of a nurturing community and paints a portrait of Paul as a leader of compassionate concern. Ten principles drawn from Paul's transforming leadership are outlined for the reader in this unique blend of leadership theory and biblical spiriuality.
A seasoned Bible scholar and an expert in organizational leadership and change offer principles for modern managers and leaders drawn from Paul's dynamic leadership style. In a unique blend of management theory and biblical scholarship, Ascough and Cotton demonstrate that Paul essentially wrote the book on how transformational leaders should operate. Thoroughly grounded in biblical studies and the academic study of leadership--yet written in a clear and readable style--their conclusions will challenge thinking in a variety of organizations.
Richard S. Ascough is Associate Professor of Greek and New Testament at Queen's University.
