When I think about John and Wayne, two important qualities of leadership stand above the rest: they listen and they take risks. These qualities have enabled them to become great friends and partners and to make a difference for thousands—if not millions—of people. These guys know leadership, and I know that reading this book will make a difference in your life.

John Perkins teaches us about Moses. Wayne Gordon teaches us about Nehemiah. Both of them teach us about Jesus. The principle of servant leadership is universal. Leadership Revolution is an excellent book that will be very helpful to me in my ministry.
