Grace to Lead: Practicing Leadership in the Wesleyan Tradition, Revised
Designed specifically for Christian leaders and teachers, Grace to Lead: Practicing Leadership in the Wesleyan Tradition, Revised Edition delves into Wesleyan scholarship to guide readers into effective contemporary leadership, from a solidly Wesleyan perspective. Calling upon insights from the 1700s Wesleyan revival in England, authors Carder and Warner motivate, form, and guide church leaders. The revised edition expands the content of the first edition and includes more illustrations and models of leadership formed and empowered by grace. Greater attention is given to leadership practiced by congregations and institutions as well as by individuals. Bishop Hope Morgan Ward of the North Carolina Annual Conference calls this book "an essential resource for all who lead and teach in the Wesleyan tradition."
