This edited work uses the life and biblical teachings of Jesus to examine modern leadership theory. With the Gospel of John as its focal point, it depicts leadership traits such as compassion, empathy, humility, and transparency as essential to the ministry of Jesus. The authors explore concepts related to communication, conflict resolution, mentorship, authentic leadership, servant leadership, transformational leadership, and succession planning to show the applicability of principles espoused in biblical teachings to modern organizations. This book will make a valuable addition to the leadership literature by using the life of Jesus as a case study.
