A few years ago, I undertook a course in Leadership and Management the concept of servant leadership was well to the fore. However, this was presented as a secular contribution, with copious references to Robert Greenleaf's significant work in this field, to such an understanding of leadership. It was unbelievable that this biblical approach to leadership was passed off as a recent development in the secular realm. The author of this book had many years of experience of leadership in church and mission in various contexts globally and writes in a manner that integrates scriptural witness, philosophy and contemporary management theory. This demonstrates that he is a 'reflective practitioner'. This book might be described as a by-product of the Third Lausanne Congress held in Cape Town in 2010, where Christian leadership was at the forefront of many discussions.
