Book review: Spiritual leadership by J. Oswald Sanders

This book underlines the importance of talented and humble leaders in the church. There is a real need of men and women who are guided by the Holy Spirit and devoted to Jesus Christ while ministering to believers. Spiritual leadership teaches how to develop leadership. In this book J. Oswald Sanders presents the key principles of leadership in the physical and spiritual realms. The author presents examples from Scripture and biographies of amazing men of God (Moses, Nehemiah, Paul, David Livingstone, Charles Spurgeon, etc). The leadership qualities are God-given, their true effectiveness can be reached when they are used to the glory of God. Some of the main topics include the cost of leadership as being a sacrifice, the responsibility of leadership which shouldn't be taken lightly, because leaders will be taken accountable of the model they testify. The tests of leadership are really challenging and mature every believer. The qualities and criteria of leadership are well presented. The art of reproducing leaders is well established. There is one indispensable requirement of leadership that every leader should present. I received a copy of the book from the publisher for this review.
