"Michael Cooper-White knows church leadership. In On a Wing and A Prayer, he generously shares his varied experiences and wisdom. Much leadership literature is deadly dull or monotonously obvious. This book is neither. The use of an interesting metaphor--leadership is like flying an airplane (the author's avocation)--is more than clever. The metaphor becomes a rich learning tool yielding significant and often surprising insights, not only for church leaders but for leaders in the public, private, and social sectors as well."
