In this small but power-packed book, leadership guru John C. Maxwell reminds us that in the race of life, we are not alone. We are, in fact, surrounded by a cloud of witnesses who have gone on before us, are cheering us on, and would like to impart to us important lessons they have learned about life and leadership. These witnesses include ten biblical heroes whom Maxwell has judiciously chosen. From each of them, Maxwell distills ten lessons about life and leadership which are simply and clearly explained in his book. These lessons include: (1) "One person can make a difference" (Noah), (2) "God has a place for you" (Esther), (3) "Don't give up on your dream" (Joseph), (4) "Live in the faith zone, not the safe zone" (Moses), (5) "Give generously to others" (Rebekah), (6) "God always does the right thing" (Abraham), (7) "No problem is too big when you have help" (Nehemiah), (8) "One small act can make a big difference" (The Servant Girl of Naaman), (9) "You can overcome the limitations others put on you" (David), and (10) "Strengthen a leader and save a nation" (Jonathan). Accompany every lesson from a biblical hero is a discussion guide which one can use for personal reflection. Maxwell's book is a helpful tool that any pastor or leader can use for leadership development.
