Overview

Spiritual Leadership: Principles of Excellence for Every Believer
by J. Oswald Sanders

What does God look for in a leader?

The need for talented, vigorous leaders in the church cannot be overemphasized. Such times demand active service of men and women who are guided by and devoted to Jesus Christ.

With more than 1 million copies sold, Spiritual Leadership stands as a proven classic for developing such leadership. In these pages, J. Oswald Sanders presents the key principles of leadership in both the temporal and spiritual realms, illustrating his points with examples from Scripture and biographies of eminent men of God (Moses, Nehemiah, Paul, David Livingstone, Charles Spurgeon, and others). He holds that even natural leadership qualities are God-given, and their true effectiveness can only be reached when they are used to the glory of God. Featured topics include:
  • The cost of leadership
  • The responsibility of leadership
  • Tests of leadership
  • The qualities and criteria of leadership
  • The art of reproducing leaders
  • The one indispensable requirement of leadership
Let this proven classic be your guide for leadership, and watch how God works through you to do great things for His glory.
