From the Back Cover
Leadership has its place in Christian ministry, but God calls us, first and foremost, to servanthood. Servant is not a modifier for some other activity but the foundation of the Christian life.
Siang-Yang Tan calls the church back to its primary role of being servants of Christ and other people. This genuine Spirit-inspired servant attitude will enable you to enter more deeply into God's rest and grace and will revolutionize your life and ministry.
"Dr. Tan has wonderfully distilled and critiqued the vast literature on servanthood and leadership and given us practical insights into how servanthood looks in daily life."--Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline; founder of RENOVARÉ
"I have benefited from Siang-Yang's servanthood as a student, beginning writer, and friend. This book is an act of servanthood for you!"--John Ortberg, author, God Is Closer Than You Think; teaching pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church
"Finally, the cart has been put back behind the horse! Tan reminds us that Jesus' call to servanthood is both primary and universal."--Gary W. Moon, editor, Conversations journal; author, Falling for God
"This superb book on servanthood reflects the exceptional wisdom and spiritual depth for which Dr. Tan has become known."--Donald A. Hagner, George Eldon Ladd Professor of New Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary
"The message of this book is biblical, balanced, and countercultural."--Chi-Hok Wong, president, First Evangelical Church Association
