I grew up under a theology that stressed holiness by human effort, and it is only after suicidal guilt that I finally began to understand how God transforms us through His grace. Identity must precede activity. This book seems to lay out the correct biblical qualities of a leader, but stresses the wrong means for how to get these qualities. They are not something that can be attained apart from an intimate love relationship with the one who gives them. Spend time with Jesus. Let Him love you. Let His beauty convince you that His ways are better than the other ways of living.
A better leadership book is Crawford Loritts book, "Leadership as Identity."
A few chapters in this book will get you to examining your own leadership and challenge you in how well you are really doing.
This is a must read!
Sanders discussions about leadership are advanced beyond basic thinking. He conveys just how much is involved in leading God’s people God’s way. While deep, Sanders’s made is points cleanly and his topics structured in a pleasant sequential and logical order, so that readers can contemplate all aspects of leadership..
Sanders has a high regard for spiritual leadership as God’s work and he expresses the seriousness with which it must be undertaken. This makes the book beneficial for all persons within the body of Christ and not just leaders or potential leaders. Thus, I would highly recommend this book to all believers, but a must read for all leaders and aspiring leaders. It is a timeless book that has the propensity to be used by God to transform his church if we would read and apply it’s principles.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I plan to continually read this book through out the years to come. It is an excellent guide for any one who is considering becoming a leader. It is spiritually accurate. I wish someone had place this book in my hands or at least told me about this book twenty-five years ago. It would have saved a lot of heartache and unnecessary anxiety on my part.
Spiritual Leadership will help educate you on what it takes to be a leader for God. It will help anyone build a foundation to stand upon in any position of leadership in or out of church. It teaches you how God honors, protects and vindicates those whom he has chosen as His leaders.

The book didn't live up to the hype, at least for me. Maybe I need to read it again just to make sure I didn't miss something. This is a very good book - don't get me wrong. But a classic? I don't know.
Here's what I loved about the book. Sanders makes fantastic use of illustrations and quotations from other people. Sanders quotes so widely one wonders if he all he did was read! Terrific stuff from great sources. Another aspect of the book that was compelling to me was the emphasis on prayer and the upside-down nature of God's kingdom. Sanders has startling, delightful words that cut against the world's definition of success. All throughout the book, the reader gets the sense that spiritual leadership is costly and dangerous while at the same time rewarding and fulfilling.
Spiritual Leadership is a book of passion. The author's walk with God is evident throughout. I gleaned some good insights from Sanders' work and I enjoyed the book - enough to give it a solid recommendation. Is it a classic? I guess that's not for me to judge. But Spiritual Leadership is definitely a good book that deserves a wide audience.
