Editorial Reviews


"A collaborative effort between a New Testament scholar (Ascough) and an expert in management theory (Cotton), this book takes a fresh angle on Paul. The authors are convinced that Paul exemplifies the kind of leadership style that many modern corporations are seeking in their own leaders, one that is less hierarchical and more what they call 'chaordic, ' that is leadership that gives more free rein to invention and on-the-ground initiative (= chaos) an yet also channels such creativity into order. The authors examine key passages in Paul's letters where they believe such leadership skill is on display, giving an exposition of the passage on its own terms and then reflecting on how it relates to issues of leadership. Readers will find this a refreshing and novel way of appreciating Paul's relationship to his communities."
--The Bible Today

"This is an intelligent as well as compassionate look at modern leadership. It draws from an impressive litany of thoughtful books on leadership, as well as Paul'''''s writing, to provide a better understanding of the apostle and an ethos for approaching modern management."
--"Globe and Mail"
