Faith, Leadership and Public Life
Leadership Lessons From Moses to JesusBook - 2017
"The connection between faith, leadership and public service is a complex one. Preston Manning knows all too well from his years as a path-blazer and party leader of the loyal opposition in our legislative assembly. Now, in his new book Faith, Leadership and Public Life: Leadership Lessons from Moses to Jesus he fearlessly tackles this subject head on by drawing upon his own years in politics and then skillfully intertwining the lessons learned by comparing them with the lives of the best known leaders of the old and new testaments. Starting with Joseph, and systematically working his way through the lives and lessons of all the best leaders, highlighting his analysis with the life of Jesus, he challenges people of faith to learn from their examples and to learn to live and conduct ourselves responsibly at the faith-political interface. He shows us how we can be seen by others as non-coercive and credible contributors to public discourse, so that we are a credit and not a discredit to our own faith and faith communities, and still make a great impact around us. If you are a leader, the experiences and insights you will glean in the following pages will help you in meeting those challenges."--Provided by publisher.
