If you want to read a book that will change your perspective on leadership then you should read I Am A Follower by Leonard Sweet. The author challenges the read to “quit defining yourself as a leader, to stop aspiring after leadership, and instead set your sites on being a “Jesus follower” or “fellow follower.” Christians should focus on being a follower and discipline of Jesus over being a leader. This requires submitting under God’s authority and being lead by Him. This book talks about how a Christian can become a better Christ follower.
The book has three main sections: the way, the truth, and the life. The author shares a description of each of these areas:
“To follow Jesus is to be in the right mission – the way: missional living.”
“To follow Jesus is to be in the right relationships – the truth: relational living.”
“To follow Jesus is to be in the right future – the life: incarnational living.”
Leonard Sweet provides practical applications, insightful illustrations, and a biblical explanation of the topic of followership. I believe if you read this book you will discover how to better be a follower of Jesus Christ and know what it really means to be a leader.
