I have been given the opportunity to do some reviews on some books from a few different publishers. Some of them do not quite fit into the focus I have for Living Infuzion, but obviously have some good information. Here are some of my perspectives on some pretty good books! Enjoy!

The Conviction to Lead by Albert Mohler

The Conviction to Lead (25 Principles for Leadership That Matter) by Albert Mohler takes is a different kind of leadership book.  I have read many books on leadership over the years, both from the general leadership, and the church leadership perspectives.  Most focus on the “this is how I run my day” tone.  Those are very good, and you can learn a lot from those books.  But I think Dr. Mohler takes things to a deeper level.  He addresses the core of the person.  Who is that person?  He talks about how to lead, you must be able to find your conviction, and be able to impact others and transfer those conviction to them.  By getting people to act on their convictions, they will be changing others, and even challenging the culture.
Some of the topics discussed are: how leaders must be able to teach, how leaders develop strong character, how leaders are readers and how in turn they should also be writers and communicators, and how leaders manage power and authority.  The book also touches on the things from the culture that push on the leader and how they must move forward.
This is a very well rounded leadership book, and will definitely challenge the way leadership is practiced in many churches and organizations. 
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House to review.  I was not required to give a positive review.
