The book you hold resonates with this conviction: that leaders such as you have the potential to be the most influential forces on planet Earth. Yours is the staggering responsibility and the matchless privilege of rallying believers and mobilizing their spiritual gifts in order to help people who are far from God become fully devoted followers of Christ. Life transformation and the eternal destinies of real people depend on the redemptive message entrusted to the local church. Are you willing to do whatever it takes to lead your church effectively so God's message of hope can change the world? Then this book is for you. Courageous Leadership is Bill Hybels' magnum opus, a book far too important to be written before its time. Only now, after nearly thirty years leading his own church from a handful of people with a burning vision into a globe-spanning kingdom force-only after almost three decades of victories and setbacks, of praying hard and risking big-is Hybels ready at last to share the lessons he has learned, and continues to learn, about Christian leadership. Too much is at stake for you not to maximize your spiritual gift of leadership, insists Hybels. In this passionate, powerful book, he unpacks the tools, tasks, and challenges of your calling. You'll discover the power of vision and how to turn it into action. You'll gain frontline insights for developing a kingdom dream team, discovering your leadership style, developing other leaders, making decisions, walking with God, embracing change, staying your God-given course, and much, much more. Drawing on his own richly varied life experiences, Hybels fleshes out vital principles with riveting firsthand stories. This is far more than another book on leadership strategies and techniques. You'll find those topics in here, to be sure. But beyond them, you'll find the very essence of one of today's foremost Christian leaders-his fervent commitment to evangelism and discipleship and his zeal to inspire fellow church leaders even as he seeks to keep growing as a leader himself. If unchurched people matter to you ... if you love seeing believers serve passionately with their spiritual gifts ... if God's heartbeat for the church is your heartbeat as well ... then this book is a must. Courageous Leadership will convince you to lead with all your might, all your skill, and all your faith. And it will give you the tools to do just that.

Defining leadership
5 stars By Seaton , Sep 26 2017
"Courageous Leadership" by Bill Hybels is one of the most inspiring and life changing books I have ever read. This book is a must read on every church leaders list, and on the list of anyone who aspires to become a leader of the next generation. Bill shows us a side to leadership that many are to afraid to talk about and is honest about the struggles of his life. I love this book and could not speak highly enough of it!

Essential reading
5 stars By Kieran Carr, Dec 05 2016
Bill Hybels' thesis in Courageous Leadership is clear: the local church is the hope of the world and its future rests primarily in the hands of its leaders . Bill is deeply passionate about the importance of the local church and its leadership. Bill covers leadership issues such as vision, strategic planning, team work, resourcing ministry, and leadership styles. Bill does not offer a technical discussion of leadership as much as share his own wisdom and insights based on thirty years of experience in Christian leadership.
