Es absolutamente esencial que la iglesia se perciba a si misma como una institucion para la gloria de Dios. Cristo nunca tuvo la intencion de que los lideres de la iglesia fueron elegidos por antiguedad, ni comprados con dinero ni que lo fueran por herencia. Nunca comparo a los lideres a una monarquia, mas bien los comparo a pastores de ovejas muy humildes. A partir de lo mejor disponible acerca de liderazgo de la iglesia, John MacArthur guia a la iglesia con lecturas eficaces y cruciales acerca del liderazgo. Este libro es de mucho valor no solo para pastores y lideres en la iglesia sino para cualquiera que desee que la iglesia sea lo que Dios deseaba que fuera. [It is absolutely essential that the church perceives itself as an institution for the glory of God. Christ never intended church leadership to be earned by seniority, purchased with money, or inherited through family ties. He never compared church leaders to governing monarchs, but rather to humble shepherds. Drawing from some of the best-received material on church leadership, John MacArthur guides the church with crucial, effective lessons in leadership. This book is valuable not only for pastors and elders, but for anyone else who wants the church to be what God intended it to be.]
