The format is one that I enjoy. Once the chapter is completed, the authors provide a bulleted list of what they believe to be the most important quotes or thoughts. Then, they provide a listing of the Bible verses quoted in the chapter. This format permits a reader to quickly go back and offer additional study. Anyone that gets this book will want to read it slowly, so the structured format permits a reader to chew on a chapter for awhile before returning to the text for additional study.
I highly recommend this book for those seeking a Scriptural basis for leadership. Have a highlighter or pen in hand to thoroughly mark up this book. Ultimately, as my title says, leadership is about lordship. If He is Lord of our life, then we humble ourselves before Him and submit to His direction. If God appoints a leader to a position, then it reveals that He is Lord of all. Essentially, leadership is Lordship.
Leadership is one of the most misunderstood capabilities or attributes. There are myriad books on the subject. Each one seems to address only a facet of it. Blackaby addresses it from the ground up -- God's design for each of us. Each chapter contains practical examples. The information shared is ready to apply to business, church, or personal situations.
