The Conviction to Lead
25 Principles for Leadership that Matters
By Albert Mohler
"Dr. Al Mohler has written a book that shakes us up and challenges our thinking. The Conviction to Lead is poised to become one of the all-time classic works on Christian leadership."
—Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family
"Having rarely thought about leadership, I was hooked from the first chapter —to my complete surprise. This is a powerful book and gracefully written."
—Fred Barnes, Executive Editor, The Weekly Standard
"Your character makes a difference every day. It provides the foundation for the work you do and instills confidence in the hearts of the people who look to you for leadership. Futhermore, true leadership, worthy of our heroic tradition, requires leaders to get results. When it is in our hands to do so, we must not fail to accomplish the good, to believe in the true, and to create the beautiful. Albert Mohler provides you with an excellent resource to develop your heart and mind in order to be prepared to lead with conviction."
—Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas; host of Fox News Channel's Huckabee and nationally syndicated radio program The Mike Huckabee Show; bestselling author
"Dr. Mohler stands in this generation as a rare example —a great leader who speaks with a clear voice. His sense of direction is anchored by deep, battle-tested convictions and applied with uncanny wisdom. We have been waiting to become students of his on this critical theme. With the arrival of this book, class is in session!"
—John MacArthur, pastor of Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California; author of the MacArthur Study Bible
"I like how Al Mohler begins this book on leadership when he says, 'Convictions are not merely beliefs we hold; they are those beliefs that hold us.' Christians are called to lead by proclaiming the gospel message that not only convicts the sinner but holds us accountable to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We must stand on the convictions that bolster our faith and lead us into spiritual bettle with victory in sight. Stand firm, stand strong, and stand true to God's Word."
—Franklin Graham, president and CEO, Samaritan's Purse, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
"Barely can I tolerate books on leadership —but this one is fun, true, and written from the matrix of a life of one of the most distinctive Christian leaders of our era. Dr. Albert Mohler, in The Conviction to Lead, has captured the missing element in most discussions and in so doing paints a verbal canvass that will be forgotten by none who venture into these pages."
—Paige Patterson, president, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas
"Quintessential Albert Mohler! I am pleased to recommend The Conviction to Lead, which represents the reflective and purposeful path that has charted Dr. Mohler's twenty highly influential years of leadership at one of the truly fine institutions in the land. Convictional, challenging, insightful, and persuasive, this most important volume will certainly become a 'must read' for leaders, admininstrators, and board members, regardless of their spheres of service, for years to come."
—David S. Dockery, president, Union University; general editor, Christian Leadership Essentials
