I recently completed ready this book as part of a seminary course on Biblical Foundations of Leadership. This is very well written and give excellent insight into the characteristic of what makes great leaders. From my extensive experience in the high tech sector this has applications in the secular as well as the sacred space.

In my top 10 favorite books. I've given away 20 copies. It's a must read for anyone in church leadership.

This has become one of my all-time favorite books on the subject of leadership (and I've read books by some of the most well-know leadership experts).

Usually I run into two problems with other leadership books. First, some of them are just boring to me. Sometimes I have felt like I'm reading through some dry, academic work. This is not too fun--it seems counterintuitive to try to sharpen your skills with a dull book. Secondly, some leadership books are too repetitive and vague. The information kind of runs together, with one chapter looking suspiciously like the previous chapter.

McNeal's book is different. It was a joy to read, and each of the 7 disciplines made a lot of sense to me. Practicing Greatness is more about being a leader than "doing" leadership roles. This book further confirmed my decision to stay in my current ministry and continue to do something that I'm gifted for and passionate about.

I hope you'll take time to read it.

Reggie McNeal offers great help to all Christian leaders. He demonstrates that great spiritual leaders need to be people who depend on God, then take God;s counsel and act upon it. He also demonstrates ways Christian leaders are and allow themselves to be, thwarted in their desire to provide great Christian leadership. This book is a "must read" for all Christian leaders, whether in a spiritual community or in the world. The spread of such principles to the world would revolutionize the art and practice of leadership.Practicing Greatness: 7 Disciplines of Extraordinary Spiritual Leaders (Jossey-Bass Leadership Network Series) 1st (first) edition

Reggie McNeal is an excellent author. His material is insightful and practical. This book did not disappoint, even though he his held to a high standard. He goes over seven disciplines that will help a minister practice greatness for God. In the church today, there is a great need for godly men to help with the mission of God in the local flocks. There is a culture that sometimes seeks to destroy talented men for God, but this book will help a leader to practice that which is most important. The author looks at self-awareness, self-management, self-development, the disciple of mission, of decision making, of belonging, and of aloneness. All of the chapters provide insightful advice on the role of the minister in being a man of God that is leading other people to the blessings of the Lord. Being a spiritual leader is different from being a business leader, there are some shared dynamics, but there are also some major differences. I highly recommend this book. Read it slowly, read it during some off time to recharge. You need to allow the words to sink into your heart. This book will make you a better minister.

I'm within a year of retirement from 35+ years as a Senior Pastor. This book contains a lot of practical applications and lessons I had to learn the hard way. So it’s a “must read” for young new leaders (and not just pastors) of today. Now that I'm looking at a change in direction for future ministry, this book and Reggie McNeal’s book, THE PRESENT FUTURE: Six Tough Questions, gives me the courage to take the next step and make the paradigm changes necessary to be an apostolic leader that our new culture and world demands. Now maybe I’ll be free to do what God has really been calling me to!

Glad the book was not too technical. Good information. Well written. I would recommend this book for a goal setting session.
Great Book, very self-revealing!
