Opens up the radical and challenging implications of 1 Peter for contemporary Christian leadership. Leading by Example is the only book which explores the practical theology of 1 Peter with particular reference to Christian leadership. Graham Houston critiques the trend in recent books to relate contemporary management theories to church leadership. He explores 1 Peter's expose of the problem of authoritarianism ('lording It') in the early church, and its development of an alternative model of servant leadership. Houston blends insights from current New Testament scholarship, sociology, theology, psychology and from years of Christian ministry to allow the ancient biblical text to address our current situations afresh. He challenges us to look away from apparent western success stories for examples to follow, and rather to look to the apparent fringes of God's work in today's two-thirds world. Leading by Example is essential reading for any who want to see how the biblical text can help Christian leaders serve the purposes of God in a more Christ-like and radical way.
