INTRODUCTION TO LEADERSHIP
- Dr. Allen Smith -
Years ago, I preached a message on leadership in the church that I pastored at the time. This
message was not about the world concept about leadership. I was about the Biblical concept of
leadership. There is a big difference in the two concepts.
This book takes a different look at leadership than you have ever seen before. It is more than a
"How To" book. It gives you examples of different leadership styles and explains what is right
and what is wrong with each one. It points out things that I have never thought about before.
There is no doubt that leadership is often misunderstood, and much of the time it is the leaders
themselves who are the ones who misunderstand leadership the most. This book does an
excellent job in bringing this fact out.
With wisdom, wit, and biblical teaching, this book will give you a good foundation of what leadership
is. Leadership is not about titles, status, and power.Real leadership comes from a faithful life and
humble spirit. Real leadership qualities are God-given, and their true effectiveness can only be
reached when they are used for the glory of God. Do not forget, God is more concerned about a
leader's character than a leader's success.
Finally, this book closes out with the biblical concept of leadership. I urge you to not only read it, but
to study it. With this book and God's help, you can become the leader God wants you to be. When
you lean on the Lord and you learn from His example of perfect leadership, you will see lives
transformed, beginning with your own!
