Next Generation Leader
I think what I appreciated most about this particular book is the fact that in many respects, Andy Stanley was speaking about me and my generation when he wrote it. Just a few simple points about what it means to be a leader, and how the culture of leaders is beginning to change. The challenges that will come, and the environment will probably change, but this next generation of leaders has much hope thanks to those who have gone before us like Andy Stanley.
Much of what he has accomplished in his ministry at North Point and the lessons that he has learned come out so clearly in this book. In fact, he seems to make a point to keep the message simple, but profound. He does not get steeped in theory or speculation, but speaks out of what he experiences, and the trends that he sees in churches in this country. I especially appreciate his advice about building leadership teams. This is not about one person trying to accomplish everything on his or her own, but about all of us moving forward to advance the cause of Christ.
A review copy of this book was graciously provided by Waterbrook/Multnomah in exchange for this review.
