Is successful leadership measured simply by the outcomes a leader achieves, or is there another―more essential―yardstick for measuring success? In Redefining Leadership, author, pastor, and college president Joe Stowell shows us that the best leaders are driven by Christ-formed character, and that truly successful leadership is not defined by the standards of this world but by the counter-intuitive practices and perspectives of the Kingdom of Christ. With compelling personal stories and insights from the Bible, he highlights the contrast between these two radically different leadership styles and demonstrates that the teaching and example of King Jesus, the world’s most unlikely leader, is the only model of leadership that leads to maximum results, results that will have an eternal impact.

'This book is powerful. It exposes the eternal consequences of having earthly applause for our Christian leadership and service, while receiving Heaven’s silence. And it is incredibly encouraging because it also reveals that leaders and ministries that seem to have earth’s silence may one day be the very ones who receive Heaven’s applause. After reading it, I re-examined my leadership, repented of my desire for “outcome,” and recommitted my “followership” to more clearly reflect our Servant King. Thank you, Joe Stowell.' -- Anne Graham Lotz, Speaker and author of Wounded by God’s People
'My soul needed this book. Redefining Leadership offers the profound reminder that our legacy is formed by who we are, and not merely by what we accomplish.' -- Jeff Manion, Senior Teaching Pastor, Ada Bible Church in Ada, Michigan, and author of The Land Between
'I am so grateful to God that my dear friend, Joe Stowell, has written Redefining Leadership. Not only is Joe a portrait of what he has written, but he has also spent much of his life and ministry shaping the next generation of Kingdom leaders. He writes not just from experience and what he has observed, but from a life and ministry marked by godly integrity. This book is a treasure and all who have been given the gift and privilege of influencing others. Thanks, Joe, for the clear, compelling reminder that we are to lead according to the ways of the Kingdom and the will of our King, Jesus Christ.' -- Dr. Crawford W. Loritts, Jr, Author, speaker, radio host, and senior pastor of Fellowship Bible Church, Roswell, Georgia
'A revolutionary and life-shaping book on kingdom leadership, one rooted not in outcome-based theories about leadership but in theology---a kingdom-saturated and gospel-based theology where the leader is first a follower whose character is transformed by God’s grace. The revolution of this book is that God’s transformation of us makes us God’s kingdom leaders, and this is just the kind of leadership we need today. Five stars!' -- Scot McKnight, Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary
'Joe knows leadership. And he knows what the Bible says about leading. He’s a guide worth following.' -- John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Who Is This Man?
