Gordon MacDonald is one of the most insightful writers on pastoral issues, and that is evident in the new paperback edition of his book Building Below the Waterline (Hendrickson). MacDonald deals with strengthening both the inner and outer lives of the Christian leader, using these articles which first appeared in Leadership Journal.
Through stories and insights from his own life and the lives of others, Gordon MacDonald’s Building Below the Waterline: Shoring Up the Foundations of Leadership (Hendrickson) emphasizes that the primary task of the leader is not gaining management skills or techniques, but the forming of a God-centered soul. The book is also packed with ideas and observations on leadership drawn from many years of pastoral experience.
In Building Below the Waterline (Hendrickson), Gordon MacDonald writes to leaders about building a strong foundation—in the leader’s soul—that will stand strong in the face of challenges. This is a book that Christian leaders will find of value for devotions and leadership insights.
