#38: Courageous Leadership

I have a confession to make. I have done little to no reading that will benefit my blog in the last 2 weeks. For some reason everytime I pick up a book I have been distracted by other time wasting opportunities such as Dr. Phil, eating, taking a nap, looking at pictures, playing with my new phone, using the internet, watching Seinfeld, cleaning, doing laundry, watching a movie, and the list goes on. Take today for example. I fully intended on reading the last 70 pages of this book and getting well into another one. But, after 5 hours I had only finished this book. Tomorrow I'm getting back on track. I promise.

I don't really have too much to say about Courageous Leadership by Bill Hybels. I was pretty bored with the first part of the book. I thought it offered a great deal of practical advice and good stories about Hybels experience with ministry but most of it did not seem that applicable to my life right now. However, the last few chapters about self-leadership, our own personal walk with the Lord and encouragement to develop and enduring spirit were pretty enjoyable and I got something out of them. In no way would I not recommend this book. It was well-written and had good perspective. It just wasn't one of my favorites.

Best regards from NY! »
