Editorial Reviews

Review

"Harry Reeder's gifts of communication and leadership are legendary. His new book is not only a source of spiritual wisdom but a manual on the practical application of the principles of biblical leadership within the church. This book is a must read for anyone serving in, or desiring to serve in, church leadership as it reflects the hands-on experience of one of the most effective senior pastors in America today."
Peter A. Lillback, Senior Pastor, Proclamation Presbyterian Church, President, Westminster Theological Seminary

"Harry Reeder's concern for leader development is much more that a jeremiad against pop theories of vision casting and profit-driven pragmatism. His urgent call to develop biblical leaders who are courageous, compassionate, and selfless is a battle cry to rescue our nation, our culture, and our churches from the suffocation of self-gratification. He urges leaders to rise above idols of success and to discover their true greatness in biblical integrity, generational mentoring, and service to divine purposes. The examples are inspiring, and the challenge to change the world by honoring God throbs in the veins of the book."
Bryan Chapell, President Emeritus, Covenant Theological Seminary; Senior Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois

"This book is a call and a challenge to Christians. It instructs and encourages. Harry Reeder is disturbed by the thought that churches have entrusted the world with defining what it means to be a leader. In this book, Harry Reeder tries to take that job back-and with it, he gives us some specific help in knowing how we can develop and deploy those leaders, in the church and beyond."
Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington DC; President, 9Marks

"Whether leaders are born or made (or both), Harry Reeder is a leader who knows how to develop other leaders. Drawing on a deep understanding of Scripture, a lifetime of ministry in the church, and a practical knowledge of military history, Dr. Reeder lays out clear biblical principles for success in spiritual leadership while at the same time warning against the dangers that constantly threaten to destroy men who serve God in ministry."
Philip Graham Ryken, President, Wheaton College

"Harry Reeder is a leader. More than that, Harry is committed to developing and deploying other leaders. It is important that a book on leadership is written by one who models what he writes. This book will be a great help to any who want to produce leaders throughout our churches and the culture with godly character and servant hearts and courageous conviction. With compelling and motivating examples and many practical suggestions, this book will challenge you to be a leader and to develop other leaders, and help you do both."
Robert C. Cannada Jr., Chancellor, Reformed Theological Seminary

"Harry makes the point that the best leadership models are those grounded in God's Word. We want to develop such leaders who then multiply through mentoring others. In this way the church will impact the culture and the world. Such leaders are desperately needed, and Harry is gifted at developing them. Here is the methodology; don't miss it!"
Frank M. Barker Jr., Pastor Emeritus, Briarwood Presbyterian Church

Format: Paperback
The Purpose

Harry Reeder, III writes as a seasoned pastor, who has both planted new churches and re-vitalized established churches. This passion has led to his ministry Embers to a Flame, with annual conferences and ongoing consultation services. This book, The Leadership Dynamic is birthed out of Reeder's conviction that the church's mission is best served and not complete until we reclaim the position of being a leadership manufacturing plant - a place that defines, develops and then deploys leaders out into the world.

For Harry, this is more than abstraction, it is also the answer to the question of what he would do in ministry differently if he were to go do it all over again - develop leaders out of a biblical model and framework, rather than the usual models of business, or more specifically "contemporary capitalism" with an emphasis on pragmatism and consumption of wealth, rather than the creation of it in order to do good ("traditional capitalism"). Harry writes "The church must escape the swamp of greed-driven leadership prevalent in contemporary corporate America and ascend the high ground of gospel-driven leadership described in God's Word," (15).

The Highlights

Harry Reeder does a very good job outlining the current state of the church and its leadership crisis. He likens our situation today to dealing with the "cultural steroids" the church has for years injected into its various leadership programs, paradigms and structures.

Most Christian leadership books are from a corporate marketing perspective. This is a refreshing, substitutive, biblical model for leadership development. It is the best book on leadership I have ever read.

I have not finished this book yet but I did attend one of Embers to a Flame meetings with the Pastor and one of the other leaders on from our church. We are a spanish congregation. I was so amazed by the conference and the simple signs and things we miss as a church on leadership that I wanted to by the book. Harry does an amazing job because he gives us great examples in the book. Its a blessing to see God using this man to write such a wonderful book Amen
