If Jesus wrote a book about leadership today, he would tell a story. That’s what the author decided when he tore up his first draft. Instead, he wrote a parable about four twenty-somethings who are having major problems with bad bosses. Jack Hendrickson, a retired Army Special Forces Sergeant and former missionary, begins to teach them Biblical principles about leadership and when they put it into practice at work…it makes their lives worse!
Many talented young people avoid leadership positions because they have been victims of follower abuse. Galvin writes about a new kind of leader the world is desperate to follow—one who empowers others by serving.
At the end of the parable, the author outlines Biblical principles of followership, as well as leadership, because everybody needs to learn how to lead and follow well.
