51. Spiritual Leadership by J. Oswald Sanders


I once had an ancient copy of this book, but I can no longer find it and think it went away in the "move to Malaysia" purge of 1997. I read it back in the 80's and forgot about it. I do not remember being thoroughly impressed even though it was highly recommended.

I was offered this free version on 9/27/10 and put it on my iPhone with hopes of listening to "someday," and that came this week. It is an updated audio version, and it hit me right where I have been lately. I led a leadership class in 2005-2006, and I wish we would have read this book instead of the silly one we read for that class (not my idea). 

I would say this is probably the quintessential book about leadership come out of an overflow of our relationship with Christ. Our motto in training people continues to be, "You cannot give what you do not have," and this is precisely the undercurrent of this whole book. 

I like how they have updated it to include women in the equation and give footnotes with biographical information about the people Sanders is referring to as he wrote this book in 1967. 

For more details about its contents and thorough review, I refer you here:
