I spent last week with Al Roxburgh (and had dinner the weekend before with Al & Jane Roxburgh and Fred & Jan Romanuk), so I’m a little biased when it comes to the book, The Missional Leader. Christianity Today’s Leadership Journal doesn’t suffer from that same bias:
For the missional leader, cultivating people rather than administering strategy takes time, and lots of it. Roxburgh and Romanuk offer delightful insights through the eyes of sociologists. They temper academic fervor (read charts and tables) with mystical insights. They force the reader into thoughtful introspection. The leader’s ability to press forward through uncertainty is only as good as his heart for God’s purpose in his or her context.
Buy the book here. And watch for the missional leadership video interviews with Al & Pat Keifert and Al & Craig Van Gelder that will be on the Allelon website in February. Al’s soon to be launched, Roxburgh Journal will also feature a netcast with e~mergent kiwi, Steve Taylor.
