By Justin Gottuso on June 24, 2012
Format: Paperback
The main argument of Andrew D. Clarke is that the leadership structures of Graeco-Roman society and the Jewish synagogue system was based on ones social standing and wealth, instead of personal merit and character qualities. While he recognizes that many New Testament churches also based leadership in churches on social standing and wealth, he emphasizes that the Apostle Paul preached a radically different value system of leadership based on serving others and honoring those lesser in faith and social standing.

The research of Andrew D. Clarke is important because it forces the reader to examine the ways they have allowed cultural norms of social hierarchy determine the values of leadership and organizational structures. It also forces the reader to examine their own aspirations to leadership positions, as well as their preference for people because of what they have instead of who they are. Finally, Clarke's work is essential because it questions the widely held belief that wealth and social status ought to determine who leads and has power within society, organizations and the global church.
