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
