I work as a campus minister at the University of Southern California. I work with college students, helping them to grow in their faith. Bold Leadership is not just for people working in business. These lessons can be applied to any Christian who is hoping to bring glory to God through what they do. Whether you are a student, missionary, or worker, this book has something for you. It is loaded with scriptural support and practical examples. I found the chapters on teamwork and legacy especially helpful for my work on the college campus. The application sections at the end of each chapter are thought provoking and challenging. If you want to make God more central in your day to day work, whatever that might be, read this book!

This book has encouraged me in my major to be a light for God. The stores are real people that are running their business as bold leaders with God first and being completely successful. He has not only encouraged me to go forth and be a bold leader but also showed me on some approaches how and where to begin. It is an easy and interesting read that will definitely open your eyes. This book is an excellent resource for students proceeding forward into the market place.

I read this book somewhat skeptically, to start off with. I thought that I knew everything it was going to say already. Switzer both challenges and encourages Christians in the work place. He includes stories of how people boldly led their teams to do what was right, even if it was harmful to themselves. He told of how people shared their faith with others and started accountability groups in the work place, leading to a more productive work force. He challenged me personally to boldly share my faith in any environment. Great book.

So, I had to read this book for a school assignment, and honestly wasn't looking forward to reading it. We had to do a book review for my business class, and surprisingly this book turned out to be very good! I enjoyed each story at the beginning of each chapter, and really liked that it was an easy read. It's not too long either, only about 200 pages. I really related to this book, and can see myself rereading it in the future. It showed me that if you put God first, and the business second, you will be able to make it through anything.

Dr. Switzer's work in "Bold Leadership" is outstanding! The principles captured here not only pertain to leadership in the business world, but also bring valuable lessons for our day-to-day living. The book is so encouraging. When you read about Christian leaders living out their faith in the marketplace, putting Jesus first, and listening for God's Spirit to lead in their decisions, I can't help but be inspired.
Thank you for all the work you did to bring this inspiration to Amazon, to the world of business, and to everyone needing some encouragement!
