Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bill Hybels, founding and senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, waited thirty years to write this book on the strategic importance of the spiritual gift of leadership. As he pastored his church and weathered the storms of amazing growth and change, his thoughts on leadership have deepened and crystallized. Now he shares the passionate cry of his heart: The local church is the hope of the world and its future rests in the hands of its leaders. When the spiritual gift of leadership comes alive in churches everywhere, the church will become the force in the world against which the gates of hell cannot prevail.

Synopsis:

The founding and senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church shares the passionate cry of his heart: the local church is the hope of the world and its future rests in the hands of its leaders. "Courageous Leadership" is written for local church leaders, the people who have the potential to be the most influential force in the world.

Synopsis:

The book you hold resonates with this conviction: that leaders such as you have the potential to be the most influential forces on planet Earth. Yours is the staggering responsibility and the matchless privilege of rallying believers and mobilizing their spiritual gifts in order to help people who are far from God become fully devoted followers of Christ. Life transformation and the eternal destinies of real people depend on the redemptive message entrusted to the local church. Are you willing to do whatever it takes to lead your church effectively so God's message of hope can change the world? Then this book is for you.

Courageous Leadership is Bill Hybels' magnum opus, a book far too important to be written before its time. Only now, after nearly thirty years leading his own church from a handful of people with a burning vision into a globe-spanning kingdom force--only after almost three decades of victories and setbacks, of praying hard and risking big--is Hybels ready at last to share the lessons he has learned, and continues to learn, about Christian leadership.

Too much is at stake for you not to maximize your spiritual gift of leadership, insists Hybels. In this passionate, powerful book, he unpacks the tools, tasks, and challenges of your calling. You'll discover the power of vision and how to turn it into action. You'll gain frontline insights for developing a kingdom dream team, discovering your leadership style, developing other leaders, making decisions, walking with God, embracing change, staying your God-given course, and much, much more. Drawing on his own richly varied life experiences, Hybels fleshes out vital principles with riveting firsthand stories.

This is far more than another book on leadership strategies and techniques. You'll find those topics in here, to be sure. But beyond them, you'll find the very essence of one of today's foremost Christian leaders--his fervent commitment to evangelism and discipleship and his zeal to inspire fellow church leaders even as he seeks to keep growing as a leader himself.

If unchurched people matter to you . . . if you love seeing believers serve passionately with their spiritual gifts . . . if God's heartbeat for the church is your heartbeat as well . . . then this book is a must. Courageous Leadership will convince you to lead with all your might, all your skill, and all your faith. And it will give you the tools to do just that.
