Sixteen Servants on the Four Movements of Radical Servantship
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Servantship, as a collection of essays, has a global appeal for leaders both inside and outside the walls of the church. As Robert Greenleaf unknowingly produced a movement from outside the church that proved transformational for the topic of leadership studies within the church, this new work has the potential to transform leadership studies well beyond the walls of the church by transforming the culture of leadership studies within the church's walls."
--Wayne Ballard, Associate Professor of Religion, Carson-Newman University
"Ever since Robert Greenleaf's pioneering work on servant leadership, there has been a need for a thorough theological exploration of the subject. Graham Hill's insightful book meets this need in a balanced and thorough way. There are many books on leadership but the servant dimension has often been overlooked. A timely contribution."
--Martin Robinson, Principal of Springdale College, Birmingham
"Servantship reflects a constructive effort to paint a picture of what following Christ means and what it entails. . . . The result is a sensitively drawn portrait with artfully nuanced strokes that will inspire new ventures of service in imitatio Christi. . . . This is a book thoughtful Christians will want to read."
--Neville Callam, General Secretary of the Baptist World Alliance
"Servantship deserves prime place among recent missional books, offering a powerful corrective to leadership-fixated churches. Combining thoughtful theology, cultural analysis, and practice, its stories and questions humble and inspire. It jolts you to see what's missing today. From the Australian context, Graham Hill has provided a challenge to the Western church that we dare not ignore."
--Michael Quicke, Charles Koller Professor of Preaching and Communication, Northern Seminary
"I am excited to recommend this important new work on servanthood and leadership. Graham Hill's book offers important insights and correctives to all of us and our views of leadership. Together the contributors help move us from the board room, back to the role of the bowl and the towel."
--Terry Walling, Adjunct Professor, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Christian leaders in North America are hearing competing voices as they struggle to understand the relationship between leadership, servanthood, and the mission of the church. Graham Hill's book is a clarion call to servantship, a fresh and needed approach for existing and emerging leaders."
--Harry Gardner, President, Acadia Divinity College, Dean of Theology, Acadia University
