Is Christian leadership distinct from "leadership" in general?
Take what you think about church leadership and turn it upside down. Author Arthur Boers believes that many people who apply secular leadership models to the church have not taken the time to reflect and realize that Christian leadership has its own distinctive shape and character. He suggests we look at leadership as it is lived out in the biblical narrative and we’ll find we should be thinking in reverse. Jesus practiced service and sacrifice, was cautious about power and hierarchies, and prioritized the vulnerable—pretty much the opposite of what we see in secular leadership standards. Servants and Fools is written for students, pastors, staff, and laity—anyone who wants to explore what it really means to be a Christian leader.
