An Authentic Servant
The Marks of a Spiritual Leader: Didasko Files Series
by Ajith Fernando
Publisher:Hendrickson from Alban Books
Only 22 pages long but this book, from the Didasko Files a series of resources from the Lausanne movement, is a considered and intelligent booklet dealing imaginatively and surprisingly with some deep questions at it's core, on what it really means to be a spiritual leader. Discussing being willing to subjugate your self, be willing to die, face stress, heartbreak and disillusionment all in the name of being a leader for Christ. Accepting the role of servant over the role of leader is quite an intense challenge and this little booklet calls you to question whether in your ministry, whatever it may be, you have the real marks of being a leader or not.
A considered treatise and well worth looking at wherever you are in terms of leadership. Some excellent questions at the end of the book make it a useful short church group study.
