Paperback
A Christian Evaluation of Current Approaches

In Reviewing Leadership, Robert Banks and Bernice M. Ledbetter offer an acute theological analysis of the influence and importance of leadership in our culture today.

The authors begin by analyzing the current growing interest in leadership and examining its development within the church. Next, they consider the spiritual dimensions of leadership. Finally, they offer examples of exceptional Christian leadership and discuss ways to nurture this type of leadership for the future.

Author Information: Robert Banks (Ph.D., University of Cambridge) is director and dean of Macquarie Christian Studies Institute in Sydney, Australia. Bernice M. Ledbetter (Ed.D., Pepperdine University) is the former director of the De Pree Leadership Center at Fuller Theological Seminary.

Endorsements: "It's not easy to lead Christianly, but for those who want to examine the best thinking on what it means to be a servant-leader, Banks and Ledbetter have compiled a broad and helpful survey of the recent literature."--Marshall Shelley, vice president, Christianity Today International; editor, Leadership Journal

"This book is a wellspring of knowledge about the intersection of leadership and Christian worldviews. Its ecumenical breadth and analytical depth can guide Christians from many traditions in shaping leadership for both the church and society. This resource should be embraced by all who care deeply about the theory and practice of Christian leadership."--Shirley J. Roels, director, Lilly Vocation Project, Calvin College

"Every wise leader I know learns from the past and applies it to the future. Books on leadership abound, yet anyone who begins a serious study into this subject needs to become familiar with the broad history of leadership development, both its theory and practice. Wouldn't it be wonderful if one book contained some of the most insightful writings and thoughts from past to present? Reviewing Leadership is such a book and should be on every Christian leader's bookshelf."--Carson Pue, president, Arrow Leadership Ministries

"This book is more than a dry bibliography of the literature on leadership. Banks and Ledbetter have crafted a theological and spiritual reflection on leadership for service in the world that is both timely and timeless. This is an indispensable guide for those who teach and nurture leaders."--R. Paul Stevens, David J. Brown Family Professor of Marketplace Theology and Leadership, Regent College

A challenging read
3 stars By Kieran Carr, Dec 05 2016
Reviewing Leadership is by far the most academic book on leadership I've ever read. Banks and Ledbetter provide 'a summary of academic approaches and concrete experiences' of leadership . The book does not present an argument for a particular model of leadership as much as cover different approaches to leadership. The underlying thesis is that leaders need to think widely and deeply about leadership in order provide a solid theological, biblical, and cultural basis for their model of leadership.
