Product description

From the Back Cover

Praise for the Original Edition of A Work of Heart

"It is not just the skills of ministry that are important. The heart-sculpting work of God creates quality ministries. A Work of Heart explains how God is shaping each of us for future service."
Bob Buford, founding chairman, Leadership Network

"We've read leadership manuals ad nauseum. We've attended every high-powered conference imaginable. We've bought the T-shirts, the three-ring binders, and all the right soundbites. But if we're honest, we're in serious drift mode, and we know it. . . . In A Work of Heart, Reggie McNeal has given us nothing less than CPR for the leader's soul, a book that moves us beyond leadership 'how-tos' to the lifeline of genuine influence—our own intricate, passionate journey with God."
Sally Morgenthaler, author, Worship Evangelism

"Everyone committed to developing leaders must study Reggie McNeal's understandings of heart shaping, and in doing so, will experience their own hearts being sculpted."
Donald O. Clifton, past chairman, The Gallup Organization

"This is a must-read for present and emerging leaders who desire to balance practical leadership techniques with a heart shaped by God. In typical McNeal fashion, this book makes the connection between the truths of Scripture and the real world the leader lives in."
Tim Schroeder, pastor, Trinity Baptist Church, Kelowna, BC, Canada

"Don't lose heart! Reggie McNeal helps us look under the hood, at the engine of our lives and leadership—our heart—and shows us what it takes to lead with increasing clarity and confidence and live with greater peace."
Dieter Zander, church planter, San Francisco, California
