Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It may seem hard to believe, being a pastor or other religious leader can be very draining on one’s faith. Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership answers a real problem that many may not realize exists for their pastors and priests.” Midwest Book Review
“In a landscape littered with leadership books that tinker at the margins of what really matters, Ruth Haley Barton offers us practical guidance to the core of life-changing leadership: spiritual authenticity and health. Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership lays bare the ancient truth that great leadership comes from the inside out, and provides a helpful road map for examining and seeking God’s transformation of that largely unexamined inner core from which true leadership proceeds. This is a powerful resource for me and my own leadership team.” Gary Haugen, president, International Justice Mission, and author of Good News about Injustice
