Description

Reexamining the Nature of Leadership and 'Followership' in Light of Biblical Teaching The market is flooded with books, conferences, and workshops on how to be a better leader. In most companies, leaders are noticed and applauded while followers are often viewed as weak and passive. However, Scripture tells us a different story; although leadership is valued and respected, being obedient followers of Christ is at the very heart of faith. In The Call to Follow, Richard Langer and Joanne J. Jung teach readers that “followership” is essential to both organizational and spiritual flourishing. They argue that followership requires the development of specific skills and virtues modeled and extolled throughout Scripture. They point to examples of people from the Bible and church history who focused on following in the footsteps of their Savior rather than positions of leadership among others. This helpful book seeks to dismantle the idol of leadership that’s so prevalent in our culture and points us instead to the biblical concept of followership. • Biblically Centered: Contains examples of “followership” from Scripture and church history • Mission Oriented: Explains how being a follower of Jesus Christ is a missional calling • Community Focused: Written to encourage Christ followers, in both leadership and followership positions
