Steven Croft, the next Bishop of Oxford, traces the nature and the exercise of leadership througout the Bible in its record of ambitious rulers, reluctant prophets and others who found themselves called to leadership positions. He offers timeless wisdom and insight into human nature and the challenge and privilege of leadership.

An ideal spiritual companion for all Christians who exercise leadership in the church or at work or in their communities, The Gift of Leadership focuses on such themes as:

• Beginning well – orientation
• Learning to see – vision
• Godly leadership – self-giving
• Sowing the word – fruitfulness
• Leading change – pioneering
• Rediscovering time – Sabbath
• Resting

Reflective yet substantive, this is a book to return to again and again for renewal and refreshment.
