Also Available In
:In his nearly four decades of pastoral, parachurch and nonprofit ministry leadership Steve Macchia has come to understand his own brokenness. He writes:"I've experienced great success and embarrassing failure. I've considered myself effective, and I've watched myself implode. I've brought others a lot of joy, and I've dished out my share of disappointment. In essence, as much as I like to view myself as a good or very good leader, in fact I'm more truthfully a blessed and broken leader?one who is daily in need of being renewed by the Spirit of God who resides in me."In these pages Steve offers the gifts of love found in 1 Corinthians 13 as the antidote to our brokenness. He writes with personal transparency from his own experience. Each chapter concludes with a powerful spiritual assessment tool to use in reflecting on our own leadership strengths and weaknesses. By embracing and befriending our own brokenness we can find true wholeness in God's strength. In these pages you will discover a new way to live in freedom and joy.
