Book Title: Servant Leadership: Setting Leaders Free (Christian Leadership (Concordia))
Publisher: Concordia Publishing House
Author: Jane L. Fryar
The book explores a better model than the current "trait-based" and "behavior-based" theories of leadership. This "value-based" theory of leadership can trace its roots to the descriptions of godly leadership in the Old Testament.
This Christ-centered and Bible-based book encourages church professionals and lay leaders to develop servant leadership traits in order to improve the day-to-day ministry of the congregation and its ability to serve God's people. The author meshes the teaching of Scripture with the best contemporary scholarship in organization theory. The results are practical, hands-on help for leaders of congregations and Christian organizations.
