The church today faces a leadership crisis, what Richard Goossen and R. Paul Stevens call an "entrepreneurial black hole." Churches are not seeking out the skills and talents of the entrepreneurs in their midst, and consequently entrepreneurs are disengaging from church life. The result is that Christian entrepreneurial leaders are not being equipped to aid the mission of the church and impact their communities for the sake of God’s kingdom.As founder and co-chairperson, respectively, of the Entrepreneurial Leadership Organization, Goossen and Stevens bring years of teaching and training experience to tackle this problem. Their timely and informative book develops a Christian model of entrepreneurship--rooted in a biblical worldview and a theology of calling--in order to overcome the entrepreneur-church dichotomy. Entrepreneurial Leadership addresses both the "how-come" and the "how-to," not only grounding the entrepreneurial calling in its proper source in the triune God but also providing practical guides for how to be an effective leader.This book is not merely for those in business. It is for entrepreneurial leaders in every context and in any organization. Both theologically rooted and practically oriented, Goossen and Stevens have written what should prove to be the essential resource for Christian entrepreneurial leadership training.
