Has anyone ever recommended a book to you that you weren’t completely certain you wanted to read? Actually, you were completely certain that you weren’t all that interested.
And have you ever read that book, only to be surprised and inspired?
I am finishing Courageous Leadership by Bill Hybels, which is the next book prescribed for the Leadership Class I am leading. Hybels seems like a nice enough guy. Pretty good speaker, interesting enough I suppose. But he isn’t a sexy choice. He doesn’t have anecdotal brilliance. He doesn’t have many gimmicks or hooks. As it turns out, he just has solid, thoughtful things to share – page after page.
