Preparing Leaders for Developing and Growing Spiritually through Future Trials and Testing “Passing the 21 Tests of Leadership” presents the reader with Biblical insight for leaving a legacy of leadership, and influence. The book is made up of 21 short fast moving chapters packed with vignettes, anecdotes, and principles for achieving maximum leadership skills for active ministry. At the end of each chapter is a test with personal perceptive questions for reflection and discussion. These questions revealed areas where I need to be more transparent and open in my relationships as I transition into a new season of life. • For me as a leader, what would it mean not to walk in integrity? • How do your priorities reveal what you value in life? • Why is essential that a leader “knows himself” during a transition time? • How can ego get in the way of vision? Larry Kreider, prolific author, and director of Dove International trains leaders worldwide. The Dove Leadership & Ministry School sponsor seminars which provide practical training in leadership, and in personal and spiritual growth. A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
