Painting vivid pictures in narrative and verse, Belton explores scripture through the lens of servant leadership and translates the language of faith into the language of the workplace. Often used in secular work environments, servant leadership is nonetheless rooted in universal spiritual truths. This book uses the Bible as a leadership manual, applying a filter of servant leadership and offering real-world guidance for our work lives.
In bite-sized chapters, twenty scriptural themes are examined from a unique and personal perspective, with original poetry providing a distinctive counterpoint to the material. The study questions included in each chapter make the book a relevant resource for private reflection or group discussion. The First Shall Be Last: Servant Leadership in Scripture strives to meet the reader at the intersection of spirituality and work, presenting new insights into the practicality of scripture and the sacredness of work.
