From the Inside Flap
Let me warn you right up front--my goal in this book is to change the way you think about leadership. I do not aim merely to add one more voice to the conversation; I want to fundamentally change the way leadership is understood and practiced.
For the better part of the last three decades, leadership has been a major cultural preoccupation and a professional obsession. And yet something is missing...
You are going to discover that Christian leadership cannot be separated from passionately held beliefs. Only if you are deeply committed to truth will you be ready for leadership. You can be part of a generation that is simultaneously leading with conviction and driven by the conviction to lead. The generation that accomplishes this will set the world on fire.
I want to see that happen, and I think you do too.

Change the Way You Think About Leadership
At the age of thirty-three, Dr. Albert Mohler became the youngest president in the 153-year history of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He was the driving force behind the school's transformation into a thriving institution with an international reputation characterized by a passionate conviction for truth. In the process he became one of the most important and prominent Christian voices in contemporary culture.What will it take to transform your leadership?
Effective leaders need more than administrative skills and vision. They need to be able to change the hearts and minds of those they lead. Leadership like this requires passionate beliefs that can stand up to pressure from without and within.
Now for the first time, Dr. Mohler reveals 25 principles to crystallize your convictions, revolutionizing your thinking, your decision-making, your communication, and ultimately those you lead.
"Dr. Al Mohler has written a book that shakes us up and challenges our thinking. The Conviction to Lead
is poised to become one of the all-time classic works on Christian leadership."
Jim Daly, President--Focus on the Family
