What he finds are powerful lessons that will inspire you—no matter what your religious background—to maintain integrity, live on a higher plane, and ultimately achieve your personal and professional goals.

The third edition is updated throughout and includes several new examples and a self-assessment chapter designed to encourage self-examination and personal reflection. Remarkably contemporary and welcoming to all readers, this book will challenge you to evaluate your own leadership style and to consider time-tested spiritual wisdom that can make you more enlightened and more effective.

By approaching the New Testament with an open mind, Manz has harvested a rich wealth lessons for those seeking to lead.
