The Conviction to Lead - Book Review by Marcus
As a pastor, I like reading books on leadership. I'm not one of those guys who sees myself as a great leader, but just an ordinary guy. This book seems to be for the former. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of awesome material in the pages of this book, but they tend to be aimed at a extra-ordinary audience.
Albert Mohler is no doubt a very good and intelligent man. He is a leader. But for some reason, I felt that this book was a little hard to read. It's not the content that I had an issue with. It was very informing, but it just felt like I was reading a textbook. I guess I was just expecting easy to understand principles of leadership without the academic feel to it.
I would not give this book a bad rating because it is an excellent book. I just give it a 3 out of 5 star rating based on the ease of reading. Mr. Mohler has presented a well researched book on the issues facing leaders of our day. It's a good book, just not as easy to read as I would like.
I received this book from Bethany House Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
