Brian Houston has done just that. When Global Founder and Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church, Brian Houston, set out to pioneer with 45 people and a school hall in the suburbs of Sydney, Australia, he was unsure of the highs and lows, sacrifices and disappointments that would mark the 32-year journey of miraculous opportunities and dreams come true. LIVE, LOVE, LEAD is his story, woven in to the greatest story ever told, with room for chapters all your own to be written and re-written. It's a collection of tried and proven principles based on powerful biblical truths and life tested experiences that will enable you to unlock your personal vision, find God in your difficulties and discover what it means to live with eternity in mind. This book is for those who are intrigued by Brian and Hillsong Church - an Australian story with global impact - and for seasoned believers and spiritual seekers alike, longing to uncover the secret to living a more fulfilling life.

Customer Reviews For "Live, Love, Lead"Write Your Own Review
Live, Love, Lead really hit a chord with me. I have always been attracted to Hillsong's music and ministry, and now to know Brian Housten's story too makes me love Hillsong more. It's a really good read and I recommend it to anyone, not just Christians, to gain insight into the power, mercy and love of God.
Love how this book caters to all audiences. You don't have to be a leader to lead. Leading is an every day thing when you choose love. Pastor Brian shares his own stories and makes it practical for us to live, love and lead.
This book is an amazing read. It has really helped me understand God purpose in my life and helped me to live life freely and fully in His amazing grace. The book is filled with plenty of His personal life story that removes any wall between the reader and the writer. As I was reading the book, I felt like I was sitting in his living room, having a coffee, while listening to him telling stories about his life and about God's plan for all of us. This is one of the book I have recommended the most to all my friends. And I would recommend it to anyone. You will love this book!
I've learnt more about Pastor Brian in this book than in all the years I've heard him preach. This book is frank, honestly inspiring, and a deserving bestseller. It reminds us that we're all human and flawed (even pastors who seem to have it altogether), but Jesus can make something awesome out of humble beginnings. The important thing is for us to get a BIG VISION. Your best is yet to come!
I love this book simply because of the rawness realness of Brian -- to allow us in to his even dark days is very rare these days. He's the man!
