Leadership today is no easy task. Christian leaders called to shepherd others get caught in power struggles and are tempted to abuse their pastoral authority. Pastors feel that they must project strength and certainty in order to preach and minister credibly. Too often our models of leadership are shaped more by culture than by Christ. John Stott offers an alternative vision in this biblical approach to servant leadership, exemplified by the apostle Paul in his ministry to the church in Corinth. Above all, Stott reassures us that God is at work even in the midst of our human weakness. "God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong." 1 Corinthians 1:27 A clear articulation of the nature of leadership as well as the thoughtful study of Scripture we have come to expect from John Stott, this exposition of 1 Corinthians 1--4 offers us a model of ministry surprisingly relevant twenty centuries later: leadership rooted in humility and grace, serving the church with the love of Christ. Study guide included.

From the Inside Flap:

"God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong." 1 Corinthians 1:27

Those in Christian leadership might suspect that this verse invalidates the day-to-day reality of their ministries. They often feel that they must project strength and certainty in order to preach and minister credibly. But does this run counter to a Christian vision of leadership?

John Stott fears that too many Christian leaders have uncritically adopted secular models of leadership. The antidote, he contends, is a biblical approach to servant leadership, exemplified by the apostle Paul in his ministry to the church in Corinth. This volume provides a clear articulation of the nature of leadership as well as the thoughtful study of Scripture we have come to expect from John Stott.

Considered by many to be the elder statesman of evangelical Christianity, John Stott is himself a premier example of Paul's vision for humility and grace in Christian leadership. His insights here will encourage younger generations to follow in his steps, serving the church with the love of Christ.
