Leadership in the world's greatest business...the Church
Authored by Dr Benjamin Anthony Griffin
Leadership, In the World's Greatest Business ...the Church, encourages Christian
leadership and education by conveying and emphasizing what is required of those who
would find themselves leading in the Church. It also demonstrates that the
principles of Christian leadership are principles that provide secular business
with viable outcomes in the advancement of society and the work of Christ.
