There is a pressing need for gifted and committed student leaders on our college campuses. However, to influence well requires more than leadership tools and techniques. A solid foundational perspective is necessary. Storied Leadership contends that assumptions held about the world are the ultimate foundation of one's perspective on leadership.

A solid foundational perspective is necessary. Storied Leadership contends that assumptions held about the world are the ultimate foundation of one's perspective on leadership. The stories we believe and tell about the nature of reality hold up our perspectives on leadership and serve as a powerful shaping force. If this is true, then a more accurate story about reality will offer a more authentic paradigm for leadership. Distorted views of reality will always incite distortions in leadership. The biblical narrative, developed through the entirety of the scriptures, helps us to understand the nature of the world, who we are in the world, and where reality is heading. This storied perspective provides a solid groundwork from which to discover the particular call to leadership, what leadership is, and how we-as people in the story-ought to lead. Storied Leadership will take students on a journey of discovery through the scriptures, making clear along the way how this powerful story will transform the way live and lead on campus.

    Well written and thought-provoking This book provides a good biblical foundation for thinking about the topic of leadership and gives some helpful practices for being wise and faithful leaders. This book would be great for small group discussions and is accessible for most readers. You don't have to be a CEO to engage and make use of the ideas here. Read it.

    So often books on leadership, whether Christian or otherwise, fall into one of two camps: Totally theoretical in a way that's hard to wrap your mind around, or just a simple "how to" formula with no real substance behind them. I've been reading books on leadership for years, as part of my undergraduate and graduate studies, and as a church leader; and I have never read a book that so nicely combines the theoretical and the practical. It was at the same time meaningful, deep, and inspiring, yet s So often books on leadership, whether Christian or otherwise, fall into one of two camps: Totally theoretical in a way that's hard to wrap your mind around, or just a simple "how to" formula with no real substance behind them. I've been reading books on leadership for years, as part of my undergraduate and graduate studies, and as a church leader; and I have never read a book that so nicely combines the theoretical and the practical. It was at the same time meaningful, deep, and inspiring, yet somehow also light and easy to read. It combines both Biblical truths and modern pop-culture references in a way you might not have ever heard before, but totally make sense. Storied Leadership is perfect for anyone of any age considering what it means to be a leader: in their school, their place of work, their church, or their extra-curricular. I dare you to read this and NOT be inspired to move, to change, to challenge your own leadership and the lives of those around you.

    Truth be told, I had pretty much given up reading in the leadership genre; however, this book was recommended by someone I trust so I gave it a try. I was not disappointed. First of all I appreciated the sort of down to earth, approachable way in which the book is written. So often in leadership books I get the feeling that a hyperventilating extrovert is trying to sell me something. Not here. I like the approach taken in which the authors contend that the Christian perspective on leadership sho Truth be told, I had pretty much given up reading in the leadership genre; however, this book was recommended by someone I trust so I gave it a try. I was not disappointed. First of all I appreciated the sort of down to earth, approachable way in which the book is written. So often in leadership books I get the feeling that a hyperventilating extrovert is trying to sell me something. Not here. I like the approach taken in which the authors contend that the Christian perspective on leadership should emerge from the Big story presented in scripture. Amen to that. In fact, all that we do as Christians ought to emerge from the narrative. From there the book is presented in two sections. The first a brief exploration of the story itself and the second a consideration of leadership practices which emerge out of the first section. For me, this was a helpful book stirring worthwhile reflection.
