- Unexpected by GenaMcCown.com on 9/3/2015
I was really eager to get my hands on a copy of this book, because it is very relevant to my current season in life. I know that God is calling me to something, and that it is in a leadership role of some sort.
I guess I missed the point that the book was written for men, because the content was very much bent toward men's interests and experiences.
That said, I still gleaned a lot of good information from the book.
The book was also a bit unexpected because there were key issues that the author dealt with that I assumed were more of an issue for women. It was refreshing to know that when it comes to stepping out in faith, following God's calling in your life, and leading with Jesus... that men and women can share some of the same difficulties and obstacles.
This unexpected aspect of the book gave me some insight into the men who lead at our church, and what they are dealing with in common with the female leaders.... and also what are the unique struggles they face.
I really appreciate that the book doesn't just deal with recognizing the call itself, and how to surrender to that call... but also the real life struggles you will face in heeding the call. Such as: Relationships, Blind Spots in our character, and dealing with your boss or those in authority over you are also included.
This is a great book for personal growth, would be a good addition to the church library or for a men's small group focusing on leadership.
It is well written, easily understood, includes real life stories and experiences, with sound wisdom and counsel.
