How can churches be empowered, not overpowered, by individuals?
Power is a dangerous reality in ordinary church life. But when people bring God into the issue and power for my sake" becomes power for God's sake" the danger is even greater.
This expose of power abuse in churches today draws on a survey of churches within mainline Protestant denominations. Turning to the kind of power-model" Jesus gives the would-be church leader, the author explores how power can be handled positively when power for God's sake is, in fact, power surrendered in the service of others.
An important book for all involved in leadership within the church.
