Endorsements "It's not easy to lead Christianly, but for those who want to examine the best thinking on what it means to be a servant-leader, Banks and Ledbetter have compiled a broad and helpful survey of the recent literature.
Chimley and Mat go on fishing silently. They have each caught several perches and are discussing the old days. Banks and Ledbetter have crafted a theological and spiritual reflection on leadership for service in the world that is both timely and timeless.

The brevity of the coverage leaves curious gaps in the scope of leadership studies, as well as an absence of mention of some arguably influential leadership theories and schools.
Whether or not that is a good thing may be a matter of debate.
The fifth chapter discusses how to translate theories of leadership into practice through the advocacy of three ethical Christian dimensions: After Mat arranges everything, his wife, Ella, eyes him suspiciously and demands to know what is happening. After more fishing, Mat asks Chimley if he is scared and Chimley says yes.
Fix then punched Mathu and the two men got into a full on fight. Mat refuses to tell her and insists that it is men's business.

Chimley knows Mathu has had minor arguments with the local Cajuns before. The [second] two chapters are an excellent 'appetizer' of spiritual and faith-based leadership. It is derived from current writings on leadership and personal observations of exemplary role models. The struggle for self-definition through the control of language is an important theme in the African-American tradition from the efforts of Frederick Douglass to that of Ralph Ellison.Still, I'm left with the feeling that this book could have been written 15 to 20 years ago, and the conversation has moved along since then.
