5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By C. S. Jones on August 21, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Agosto states "The key to the leadership of Jesus was that he carried out his mission in direct contrast to the established leaders of his day" and that he commissioned his followers with the purpose of "providing relief to those who were suffering the burdens of a failed religious and political leadership" (Agosoto, 200). Agosto appears to approach the subject from a background of liberation theology, emphasizing strong action and political/social justice. While social ministry and justice may be an important part of how Jesus led, this cannot be the key to his leadership because it does not capture the richness of the servant-leadership example Jesus left for his followers. C. Gene Wilkes gives a clearer picture of the servant-leadership of Jesus, illustrating seven timeless principles of how Jesus led (Jesus on Leadership: Timeless Wisdom on Servant Leadership, Carol Stream, IL: Tyndale House, 1998, 11-12). Christological servant-leadership encompasses more than the obligation to the poor and the oppressed. Wilkes writes, "A servant leader serves the mission and leads by serving those on mission with him" (Wilkes, 18). Don N. Howell, Jr. writes of three elements found in the life of all servant-leaders: character, motive, and agenda (Don N. Howell, Jr., Servants of the Servant: A Biblical Theology of Leadership. Eugene, OR: Wipf and Stock, 2003, 296). According Howell, the biblical record emphasizes who a leader is over what a leaders does, believing that Christ-like character, motives, and agenda will produce Christ-like action.
Servant Leadership: Jesus and Paul is well-researched with in-depth exegesis and historical studies.

By Mid-Level Exerciser on February 19, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an extraordinary analysis of the comparison between servant leadership and the practices of Jesus Christ and Saint Paul. The analysis is very thorough and might be too deep for some readers. If you are researching servant leadership from an academic perspective, this is a must.
