From the Back Cover

A Leadership Model That Can Preach

Many in ministry see preaching and church leadership as separate responsibilities. "Most writing on Christian leadership omits preaching, and most books on preaching leave out leadership," observes Michael Quicke. But effective Christian ministry requires preachers to rediscover leadership through preaching. By adapting a workable and realistic leadership model, Quicke shows how preaching is the main vehicle for leading congregational change.

"If you feel your preaching responsibilities get in the way of your leadership, prepare to be challenged. If you feel your leadership responsibilities get in the way of your preaching, prepare to be challenged. 360-Degree Leadership argues persuasively that leadership and preaching are two sides of the same gold coin."--Craig Brian Larson, editor, PreachingToday.com

"There is a strong link between preaching and leadership, and Michael Quicke addresses that issue with great insight. As an experienced pastor as well as a talented teacher and writer, Quicke understands leadership well and helps us to understand it better. This is an excellent and helpful book."--Michael Duduit, editor, Preaching magazine

"This is a rare book. Michael Quicke is right. Too much thinking about leadership in the church merely apes secular thinking. Divine dynamics and divine strategy are left out of account. Michael not only challenges our secularism but shows a way forward. Principle, passion, and practice are beautifully blended here. It should restore confidence in the pulpit and help many a pastor to perceive ministry in a more integrated way."--Derek Tidball, principal, London School of Theology

"I've been waiting for this book. With warmth and wisdom, Quicke shows us how to bring preaching and leadership together."--Kevin Miller, vice president, Christianity Today International

Michael Quicke has been criticized for writing a book on leadership because he is first and foremost a preacher, but this project demonstrates a clear understanding of the relationship between preaching and leadership that should exist. Preaching is touted as the primary tool for the application of any plan for congregational mobilization. Certainly many pastors recognize the pulpit as a place of great authority but that authority is most often used, and misused, for leadership purposes before the actual sermon begins. Dr. Quicke does a wonderful job of weaving the preaching moment into the fabric of leadership for change in the local church. Also consider his book, 360 Degree Preaching.

Format: Paperback
Michael Quicke's book on leadership and preaching is signficant and applicable for pastors. His writing is sourced in Scripture, prayer and in the counsel of other experts on leadership. He has clearly lived this type of leadership and pastoring. He shares his own experiences of learning through trials and blessings.

I think readers can take insights from this book and immediately apply them to their ministry. Quicke emphasizes that leadership is compatible and should be a part of preaching to the congregation. He shows how preaching is the tool/expression that God has chosen especially to guide and transform his people. Too often, he says, preaching and leadership have been seen as two distinct activities rather than one in the same.

Quicke teaches on preaching to effect transformation. He uses illustrations and models, along with practical steps for preachers to take. At times, I felt overwhelmed with the challenge he presents, but he continually turns readers' reliance to the Holy Spirit who is the One who empowers us to preach and lead.
