Where are the leaders like Jesus? Perhaps they are not where you think they are. In Under the Radar, Douglas Webster lays out a Scriptural challenge to recent trends in church leadership, which are quickly turning pastors into CEOs and their churches into multi-million dollar marketing machines out of touch with their biblical mission. Working from the Gospel of Luke, Doug Webster shows where we've gone wrong and what an authentic Christian leader looks like according to Scripture. Leadership in the name of Jesus, he argues, is different from any other kind of leadership in the world. Nothing the world has to offer comes even close. Jesus turns everything upside down, and inside out, and nothing comes out the same. What's more, to serve Christ often means to fly under public recognition. Here is essential reading for all who would lead the people of God. Douglas D.
