For the both of you who got hot under the collar because I interviewed the founder of Leaders Book Summaries last month (you both had an allergic reaction to the word “leaders”), I wish to remind you of three things:
1. I have NEVER been anti-leader or anti-leadership.
2. I have said repeatedly (and ad nausea) that leadership exists. It can be good or bad, helpful or hurtful, but leaders are and leadership is. It’s organic to the DNA of the ekklesia.
3. I’ve also pointed out that EVERY believer is a leader in some sphere. I couldn’t have made that point clearer than in my article The Myth of Christian Leadership. (Don’t judge the article by the title; read it completely first, then judge.)
