Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The business world is rife today with books about leadership styles (e.g., Covey's Seven Habits of Highly Effective People). In their book, Briner and Pritchard hold up the example of Jesus as a leader worth emulating by modern leaders. The book is composed of 51 short reflections on verses of the Gospel of Mark that demonstrate the principles of Jesus's style of leadership. Each chapter opens with a long passage from Mark and then focuses on one key verse from that longer passage. The remainder of each chapter is a mini-devotion on the particular leadership quality illustrated by each passage. For example, Briner and Pritchard narrate the story of Billy Graham and the temptations he has faced as a great modern leader as an illustration of Mark's story of the temptation of Jesus by Satan. Some of the other principles of leadership that emerge from this book include the ability to delegate, the practice of strategic withdrawal and the practice of loyalty and honesty. Because of its choppy style and its vignette-like structure, the book ultimately lacks any coherent vision of leadership style.

Format: Hardcover
I normally shy away from the platitudes and punditry of self-help and business "rules, tools, & tips", but I saw this book in the uniform sales shop that serves the US Special Operations Command,right next to War of the Flea: The Classic Study of Guerrilla Warfare, and I could not resist.

This little volume will join The Astonished Universe, a French-English side by side poetry book that celebrates life, in my travel briefcase.

I write this sitting by the window of an old estate in Provance, France, while attending a retreat with four others active in the Collective Intelligence movement. I bought it primarily because it was on sale in the bookstore that serves the U.S. Special Operations Command.

Written by a sports writer and producer in partnership with a pastor, it provides the reader with 52 segments, each consisting of a quotation from scripture, and then a two page double-spaced discussion. I found this book over-all to be thoughtful and practical and not at all "preachy."

The authors immediately drew me in, non-practicing believer that I am, by stating up front that this little guide was a means of discovering and/or reintroducing Jesus to your life. That did it for me, I'm ready.

The book opens with an emphasis on truth as the most important element of both faith and performance, then surprised me by emphasizing that how a leader is perceived is something the leader can never hear too much of.

Format: Hardcover
Profound leadership lessons that can be read on a daily basis and based on the life of Jesus according to the Gospel of Mark. This small book is packed with many large lessons. Every person can use the wisdom shared in whatever life's vocation they have chosen. I am using them in my workplace and with my children. A must read!

Brilliant. The authors combine leadership experience, the Life of Jesus, and clear thinking to provide today's leaders with fresh insights and perspectives. Useful, practical and easy to read, and yet demonstrates profound depth of thinking.

As you read, pray for the gift of wisdom to understand all that is presented on these pages, so that you can apply them in your own lives! God Bless!

Format: Hardcover
This book neatly identifies major themes in leadership theory and illustrates their being practiced and taught by Jesus. While it is somewhat thin, I consider this perhaps the single best leadership book ever written nevertheless. In 200 years this book will enjoy just as much applicability as it does today and it did 2000 years ago. Few other volumes can make such claims. Regardless of whether you are (or hope to be) a military, business, political, ministry, athletic or social leader, this is the first book to read.

After that I know a few hundred you might want to read. For starters you might want to peruse my Leadership Classics list.

"Who is the greatest leader in history? Of all the names that might be given in response to that question, one name stands above all the rest: Jesus Christ."
- from the introduction of "The Leadership Lessons of Jesus: A Timeless Model for Today's Leaders" by Bob Briner and Ray Pritchard.

From the Publisher:
This newly redesigned edition of The Leadership Lessons of Jesus is expanding to include more than seventy unique easy-length readings that explore and adapt the individual techniques that made Christ's leadership so powerful.

Timeless, relevant, and practical applications of the ministry of Jesus Christ taken from Gospel of Mark presented in 75 short but insightful chapters focusing on key areas all leaders should aquaint themselves.

A sampling of the lessons include instruction to leaders on: The Call, Followers, Authority, Discipline, Teams, Plans, Attacks, Unity, Faithfulness, Vision, the Unexpected, Rebukes, Strategies, Loyalty, Gratitude, Public Relations, Flattery, Commitment and Management. All areas are addressed with frankness and practicality.

This is a handbook for all those in leadership positions.

It is rare that I review an older book, but this one is so good I wanted to bring attention to this timeless book on leadership. The Leadership Lessons Of Jesus is easy to read—I read the whole book on 4th of July. But it is also a book to savor and digest all the wisdom found in the 240 pages. I found myself highlighting many passages throughout the book. You can see some of the quotes here.

Bob Briner and Ray Pritchard bring a refreshing look at how the greatest leader in the world has provided the blueprint to become a successful leader. Each chapter is short and easy to read for those who are on the run. Christians know that Jesus led people, but it is not until readers dig into the book of Mark with Briner and Pritchard that you can discover true timeless leadership skills found in the life Jesus lived here on earth.

If you only read one book on leadership, may I suggest The Leadership of Jesus. It is a timeless classic.
