10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Richard Tavener on 3 Nov 2001
Format: Paperback
This book looks at the nature and problems of leadership, particularly in Christian organisations (although the principles have general application). The problems of power are discussed and the antidote of servant leadership, as modeled by Christ, is proposed.
Other topics covered are coping with criticism, stress management, relationships and trust, and love and honour.
There is a valuable chapter on failure in leadership.
A book to study and digest carefully.

Excellent read on real leadership and what it means and doesn't mean. Good for self-correction where it is needed and also an excellent insight on why some people can't lead.
Indispensable to anyone in a leadership position or on on their way to.

Excellent, Comprehensive Book on Christian Leadership 17 Feb 2003
By David R. Bess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is one of the best titles I have read that applies specifically to Christian leaders. There are many works available that address leadership in general, but ones that give a uniquely Christian perspective are harder to find. Marshall has an excellent work here, and I recommend it highly to all Christian leaders. I especially recommend it to young pastors who are preparing for a life of service as a pastor.
Everything rises and falls on good Christian leadership. In twenty years of pastoral ministry, I have seen many of Marshall's principles verified through my own mistakes and shortcomings. This book will be a great help in avoiding many of the pitfalls that plague Christian leaders.

New Leadership Concept 7 May 2006
By Heather Secora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book fascinating in what Tom Marshall viewed as the most important function of leaders; service to those they lead. I am in the military and, for me, this book hit home in how he reminds leaders that humility and desire to serve others are vital to success. In being a servant to others, we must place their needs first and think of their welfare before our own. Also included are great discussions concerning pride, self healing and ministry. Yes, a Christian book, but the philosophy is beautiful and can be applied by anyone who feels a desire to be a responsible servant/leader to others.

A Life Saver 30 Jan 2011
By Don Boudreau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After many heart-wrenching experiences in ministry throughout the years and observing the spiritual abuse of power others wielded, this book has proven to be a life saver. It is a must read for any Christian and especially anyone that serves in any capacity of leadership. The Servant Leadership principles are fantastic as well as understanding the danger of power and how easily it can corrupt even the best intentions.

While this is primarily a Christian leadership book the reality is that "truth" is "truth" and anyone can glean a wealth of it from this book and good principles that apply to everyone. Buy it! You won't be dissappointed.
