Builders and Fools
Leadership the Bible Way
Builder, fool, ambassador, athlete, parent, pilot, scum, shepherd: the apostle Paul uses rich imagery when he discusses what it means to be a Christian leader. Derek Tidball believes these images have important lessons and fresh insights for pastors and others in church leadership today. At a time when such people struggle under increasing pressure to 'produce results' and 'perform up to standard', what is needed is a different way of looking at leadership. Builders and Fools provides that. By explaining and drawing out the implications of Paul's imagery, it helps us focus on what really matters, on what God wants leaders to do and how he wants them to be.
