Leading Lessons: Insights on Leadership from Women of the Bible
ISBN: 0806651334

Augsburg Books. 2005

Asequel to Porter's first book, Leading Ladies, which explored how the Bible supports women in leadership, this volume delves deeper, providing insights into growing into leadership, leading through adversity, challenging the status quo, and seeing leadership potential in unexpected people. Nine scripturally based studies examine lessons of leadership from specific women of the Bible. From Eve, we discover how to unlock our leadership potential from Esther, we learn about leadership formation from within. Each chapter includes a summary page of empowerment principles, as well as a series of questions for personal reflection or group discussion.
