9780801018176: Leadership Revolution: Developing the Vision & Practice of Freedom & Justice

The next generation hungers for strong, visionary, ethical, and passionate leaders. Where do we start in this day where we lack leadership at all levels? The authors of this breakout book contend that leaders of tomorrow are among us, but they need to be identified, trained, and empowered. John M. Perkins casts the biblical vision that has started a movement. Wayne Gordon has rolled up his sleeves at the grassroots level to spark the transformation of a Chicago neighborhood. Together (and with friends) they founded the Christian Community Development Association. Now they put in this book the stories and lessons of discovery, growth, mistakes, success, and lives changed. They are ready to hand batons of leadership, especially for poor and under-resourced communities, over to the next generation. With this book, they do just that!

About the Author:

John M. Perkins is cofounder of the Christian Community Development Association and director of the John M. Perkins Foundation for Reconciliation and Development in Jackson, Mississippi. He is the author of many books, including Let Justice Roll Down, named by Christianity Today as one of the top fifty books that have shaped evangelicals.

Wayne Gordon is cofounder of the Christian Community Development Association and lead pastor of Lawndale Community Church in inner-city Chicago where he has ministered for thirty years. He is cofounder of the Lawndale Christian Health Center and teaches at several colleges and seminaries. He and his wife, Anne, have three adult children.

Review:

The impact of John Perkins and Wayne Gordon on low-income urban communities has been profound. We in the business community can learn a lot from the leadership example and practices of these two servant leaders. Read this book and be inspired to make a difference.
David Beré
CEO of Nonni’s Food Group, Chairman of the Fuller Seminary Board of Trustees

When I think about John and Wayne, two important qualities of leadership stand above the rest: they listen and they take risks. These qualities have enabled them to become great friends and partners and to make a difference for thousands—if not millions—of people. These guys know leadership, and I know that reading this book will make a difference in your life.
Carey Casey
CEO of the National Center for Fathering

While most of Christian leadership material originates in the context of suburban, middle-class realities, these two ministry pioneers share hard-earned leadership lessons from the context of under-resourced communities that will equip thousands of Christian Community Development practitioners and leaders throughout the nation.
Noel Castellanos
CEO of Christian Community Development Association



John Perkins and Wayne Gordon are two of the wisest and greatest leaders I know. For nearly 20 years, I have been learning everything I can from them. This book is the newest, freshest fruit of the lifelong friendship of this dynamic duo of urban ministry.
Shane Claiborne
Author, Activist and Founding Partner of The Simple Way, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

John Perkins and Wayne Gordon are unique visionary leaders who always write out of the heart of their firsthand and risk-taking leadership experiences. It is for that reason that the timely lessons they provide in Leadership Revolution can be trusted and adopted by those seeking to use their leadership gifts to create transformational and revolutionary change.
Leah Gaskin Fitchue
President of the Payne Theological Seminary, Wilberforce, Ohio

This inspiring and instructive book on leadership will be a lasting legacy from these two pioneers of faith-based community development. Leadership Revolution serves as a clarion call for a new generation of courageous Christians to embrace the cross, follow Christ, and take risks for God’s kingdom.
Marshall E. Hatch, Sr.
Senior Pastor of New Mount Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church, Chicago, Illinois



I have known John and Wayne for more than three decades. They take servant leadership to a level I have rarely seen demonstrated. Their book is packed full of practical counsel for leaders. I loved it!
Bill Hybels
Senior Pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, South Barrington, Illinios

John Perkins teaches us about Moses. Wayne Gordon teaches us about Nehemiah. Both of them teach us about Jesus. The principle of servant leadership is universal. Leadership Revolution is an excellent book that will be very helpful to me in my ministry.
Patri ck McCaskey
Senior Director of Special Projects for the Chicago Bears Football Club, Chicago, Illinois

John Perkins and Wayne Gordon have penned a book on leadership that is theologically sound, biblically consistent, and practically useful. This is an absolute must-read for the committed practitioner as well as the serious student of leadership.
David Sveen
President of Cedarstone Partners, Adjunct Assistant Professor at Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois
