There are many leadership books available today in the market. They cover every conceivable aspect of the topic and the ordinary reader longs for something simple yet effective. Written in the context of the 21st century church, this book has the Bible as the only basis for its teaching. Biblical Principles of Leadership is both a text book for students on Christian leadership and a handbook of pastoral ministry for pastors.
Alexander Kurian firmly believes that Leadership is ‘The exercise of one’s spiritual gifts under the call of God to serve a certain group of people in achieving the goals God has given them toward the end of glorifying Christ.’ This belief is clearly reflected in the topics covered by Dr. Kurian. He has returned back to the Bible and drawn out its teaching on matters relating to the principles of church leadership.
The author is straight forward in his writing and calls the church out on its failures over time. However, he does so with a view to correct rather than criticize. This goes a long way to set the book apart from all the other titles on the book shelf.
