Wisdom in Leadership

Wisdom in Leadership

Product Review (submitted on 9 June 2016):

Let’s get the negatives out of the way first. I love Matthias Media, but the cover is cheesy and the book is way too long. This volume is going to reach a smaller audience because it is 78 chapters and 495 pages. Which is a shame, because this is an outstanding book. Hamilton’s thesis is that most Christian leaders are into theology books or leadership books, but rarely both. And that’s a problem. He thinks (1) Christian leadership must be rooted in good theology and (2) theologically-minded pastors cannot ignore principles of good leadership. The result is an extraordinarily practical book that is full of invaluable insight and hard fought common sense. Pick 20 or 30 small chapters and use this book with your staff or your leadership team. I like “Time Management Won’t Help You,” “Praise Publicly,” “Ideas Are Born Ugly,” “Public Fans and Private Critics,” “Choose Your Lieutenants,” “There’s No Point Having a Dog and then Barking Yourself,” and “Why Systems Matter.”
