"God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong." (1 Corinthians 1:27)Those in Christian leadership might suspect that this verse invalidates the day-to-day reality of their ministries. They often feel that they must project strength and certainty in order to preach and minister credibly. But does this run counter to a Christian vision of leadership?John Stott fears that too many Christian leaders have uncritically adopted secular models of leadership. The antidote, he contends, is a biblical approach to servant leadership, exemplified by the apostle Paul in his ministry to the church in Corinth. This book provides a clear articulation of the nature of leadership as well as the thoughtful study of Scripture we have come to expect from John Stott.Considered by many to be the elder statesman of evangelical Christianity, John Stott is himself a premier example of Paul's vision of humility and grace in Christian leadership. His insights here will encourage younger generations to follow in his steps, serving the church with the love of Christ.

John Stott was born in London, England on April 27, 1921. He converted to Christianity in 1938. He graduated with a double first in French and theology from Trinity College, Cambridge University. He was ordained in the Church of England in 1945. He published over 70 books between 1954 and 2010 including Personal Evangelism, Becoming a Christian, Parochial Evangelism by the Laity, Basic Christianity, The Cross of Christ, Issues Facing Christians Today, and The Radical Disciple. He died on July 27, 2011 at the age of 90.
