Published by Xlibris
History is strewn with examples of failed leadership caused by abusive power and control (tyranny) on one hand and ¡§me¡¨ (narcissism) on the other. Why have we not learned our lesson? The answer lies in human nature. Some people lust for power and control, others seek the adulation of those around them.Because Christianity is both belief and practice it is critical and necessary, the authors argue, that the leadership practices of Christians be consistent with the faith. What do you do when you¡¦ve tried the theories and they aren¡¦t working? You go to historic Christianity where you will discover a timeless organizational model that is founded upon the Holy Trinity, and a leadership model incarnated in Jesus Christ.Beginning with a Trinitarian vision of a communion of persons, McKibben and Williams outline in many practical ways how it is possible to make hierarchy and conciliarity complementary aspects of a leadership based on mutual service and accountability. If you are disillusioned with organizational church life, or simply frustrated at the gap between theology and administration, then this book will be a source of hope¡Kthis is a pioneering work Fr. John A. JillionsAssociate Professor, Saint Paul University, Ottawa, Canada Vice-President of the Canadian Council of Churches Beyond Tryanny and Narcissism addresses organizational realities that all churches and businesses struggle with, and does so from the perspective of the historic Christian faith by drawing on the doctrine of the Holy Trinity and Christ's leadership style. It is the best single practical treatment on the Holy Trinity I have read.Dr Richared J. MouwPresidentFuller Theological Seminary
