In A Work of Heart, best-selling author and expert Reggie McNeal helps leaders reflect on the ways in which God is shaping them by letting us see God at work in the lives of four quintessential biblical leaders: Moses, David, Jesus, and Paul. McNeal identifies the formative influences upon these leaders, which he sees as God's ways of working in their lives--the same influences at work today forming leaders for ministry in our times. He explores the shaping influence of: (1) culture: the times and the environment in which a leader is raised; (2) call: the leader's sense of personal, God-given mission; (3) community: the people whose comradeship shapes and sustains the leader; (4) communion: the leader's personal relationship with God; (5) conflict: the leader's engagement of destructive forces in life and ministry; and (6) the commonplace: the daily choices of living. Using illustrative stories of contemporary leaders opening their hearts to God's guidance, McNeal show how--just as God used these influences to shape Moses, David, Jesus, and Paul--God is using the same influences to shape the hearts of Christian leaders today.
