The Leadership Imperative: Leading Biblically in an Age of Fluidity (Paperback)
The topic of leadership is ubiquitous in today's era of experts, scholars, and gurus. With a host of voices promoting a myriad of views on this topic, it is hard for one to determine who or what is correct. This book gets to the heart of the issue by providing an unashamed and historic basis for leading others, using biblical truth as the standard. The postmodern epoch is fraught with confusion, relativity, and chaos as basic terms are redefined, historic truths are maligned, and cultural mores are upended. Consequently, leaders in this time are often just as confused as their followers who are leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. Fortunately, there are answers for those seeking to lead with confidence based on something much grander than personal opinion or subjective reasoning. In this work, Dr. Liebhauser explains the pitfalls leaders face in these fluid times of resistance to anything authoritative while providing sound principles by which to effectively lead. The reader will appreciate learning about the historical dynamic which fueled postmodern thinking and find hope in the time-tested remedies this book provides.
