Equipping for Service: Christian Leadership in Church and Society, by Knud Jorgensen, is written out of decades of experience of leading churches and missions in Ethiopia, Geneva, Norway and Hong Kong. Combining the teaching of Scripture with the insights of contemporary management philosophy, Jorgensen writes in a way which is practical and applicable to anyone in Christian service. As he writes in his introduction, The intention has been to challenge towards a leadership relevant for work in church and mission, and in public and civil society, with special attention to leadership in Church and organisation. Equipping for Service is a gift... a source of wisdom for younger leaders, a sourcebook for more seasoned leaders. From the Preface by Doug Birdsall, The Lausanne Movement
