Format: Hardcover
As a CEO myself, I will attest to the excellent inspiration that it relays to the executive. The chapters are short and to-the-point. I recommend keeping it in your desk and reading a chapter
a day or so to develop more insight into the leadership technique that worked for God.

As I learned from reading the text, I realized the wisdom of Christ is not really ancient at all...but are simple lessons in interacting with and leading people that are timeless in nature.

This book could change the nature of our corporations and World if it were required reading for business leaders....

The only thing that the author didn't emphasize more is the importance of communicating with our boss, Jesus, through prayer, and constantly asking for his guidance in our actions. He will makes us stronger and abler leaders.

Laurie Beth Jones has done a spectacular job of making the life of Jesus applicable to modern business. This book could have easily been a recitation of fundamentalist dogma, but in Jones's capable hands the wisdom of Jesus leaps off the page with new life and inspiration. The business advice is as solid as it is inspirational. I recommend it highly.

In terms of training and learning, Jesus could be the benchmark for business executives. Jesus set an example for rallying the greatest potential of human resources of a group. After years of business experience in advertising, marketing, and business development, Laurie Beth Jones was disturbed that many management styles and techniques practiced today ran counter to Jesus' leadership. She determined to rediscover the wisdom of the ancient sage for empowering people in all layers of leadership to review the divine excellence in themselves.

The visionary leadership of Jesus, Jones contended, was threefold: strength of self-mastery, strength of action, and strength of relationships. In the strength of self-mastering, Jesus was genuine to face himself and He stuck with his mission. He was grateful to others and He was constantly in a state of celebration. He felt a sense of destiny and had a passionate commitment to the cause.

In the strength for action, Jesus had a plan, formed a team, and took action. He took the long view and said, "Why Not Me?" In His strength of relationship, Jesus gave His followers a vision of something greater than themselves. He was always affirmative, spent much time with his team, and set an example for them. He played with them and loved them to the end.

In a world of business writings looking for the newest trends, creating the new jargons, reducing secrets of success into simplified formulae, and concentrating on skill sets, Jones restoration of Jesus' life could be a fresh perspective. Character-building is more important than skills. Relationship goes further than benefits. The person is more important than the achievements. For continual learning, one needs to be familiar with the first century as well as the 21st century.

As a store manager, this book helps me stay focused on doing it right, and not just for profit. The questions at the end of each chapter help create new ideas and leadership skills. Some chapters will hit you straight between the eyes. Business and Christianity can coexist. It helps me be a better manager. A daily devotional for anyone in business.
