From AudioFile:

This program tells the story of Joshua's flight from Egypt, the lessons he learned from Moses, and how he overcame adversity to become one of the most effective leaders in biblical times. Denying his own power and the advice of his contemporaries, he followed God's ideas on leadership as he moved his people through a time of great change. Drawing on the unyielding authority patterns so common in the Old Testament, these historical lessons are engaging as well as inspiring. J. Charles is informed and involved but keeps enough distance from the material to let the story maintain center stage. A compelling lesson for anyone interested in leadership and influence.
