Details: Weak Enough To Lead is a rich, rewarding book for leaders in any type of ministry. Author James Howell begins by examining the prayer of Jehoshaphat with its promise to focus on God. Then he shares the leadership stories of more than a dozen Old and New Testament figures, including Jesus, illuminating the characteristics of biblical leadership in each.
The chapters conclude with thought- and discussion-provoking questions, guiding the reader through helpful reflection on self and ministry. This is a powerful read for individuals and is especially helpful for groups to study together.
