📒The Servant ✍ James C. Hunter
📝The Servant Book Synopsis : With a new introduction on using the principles of The Servant in your life and career, this book redefines what it means to be a leader. In this absorbing tale, you watch the timeless principles of servant leadership unfold through the story of John Daily, a businessman whose outwardly successful life is spiraling out of control. He is failing miserably in each of his leadership roles as boss, husband, father, and coach. To get his life back on track, he reluctantly attends a weeklong leadership retreat at a remote Benedictine monastery. To John's surprise, the monk leading the seminar is a former business executive and Wall Street legend. Taking John under his wing, the monk guides him to a realization that is simple yet profound: The true foundation of leadership is not power, but authority, which is built upon relationships, love, service, and sacrifice. Along with John, you will learn that the principles in this book are neither new nor complex. They don't demand special talents; they are simply based on strengthening the bonds of respect, responsibility, and caring with the people around you. The Servant's message can be applied by anyone, anywhere—at home or at work. If you are tired of books that lecture instead of teach; if you are searching for ways to improve your leadership skills; if you want to understand the timeless virtues that lead to lasting and meaningful success, then this book is one you cannot afford to miss.
📒Servants Of The Servant ✍ Don N. Howell
📝Servants of the Servant Book Synopsis : Leadership is a subject that has gained impressive visibility in the past two decades. The number of books, monographs and articles, as well as seminars, devoted to the development of one's leadership skills has been almost exponential growth. This study is an attempt to forge a full-orbed theology of Christian leadership grounded in the teaching of Scripture. What emerges from tracing the theme of leadership through the biblical record is a servanthood pattern, one that is wholly distinct from prevailing secular models. Our exposition begins with the biblical language of the servant, the term of choice for those great leaders used of God to further his saving purposes in the world. Eleven Old Testament and five New Testament leaders are profiled. The portrait of Jesus Christ focuses on three motifs that governed his training of the twelve for kingdom ministry. The Pauline letters are mined for those convictions that governed Paul's practice of leadership, both of his mission team and of the faith communities that emerged from that mission. The treatment of each leader, from Joseph to Paul, begins with a series of preliminary questions and concludes with a mini-profile that correlates the biblical data with these questions. The final chapter offers a summary profile of the servant leader, one whose character, motives and agenda align with the divine purposes. Though designed as a textbook for upper level college and seminary courses on leadership, the book's readable format is ideal for churches and parachurch organizations in their leadership training programs. The author's prayer is that this work will serve as a catalyst to call God's people back to Scripture and thereby raise up a whole new generation of authentic servant-leaders.
📒Servant Leader ✍ Ken Blanchard

Servant Leader summarizes the Four Dimensions of Leadership: the head (leadership assumptions and methods) the hands (application and leadership behavior) the heart (edging God out) the habits (solitude, prayer, study of scripture, unconditional love, etc.) The thousands who have attended his seminars witnessed the transforming power of this unconventional approach.

📒Life Of The Servant ✍ Henry Suso
📝Life of the Servant Book Synopsis : The Life of the Servant' is one of the world's greatest religious biographies. It is the work of a saint - one of that remarkable trio of 14th century German mystics, of whom the others were Eckhardt and Tauler - who was also a poet. The book was never intended for publication, and owes its preservation to an accident. What Suso confided to his 'spiritual daughter' was meant for her ears alone. In order to console a highly gifted woman in the acute sufferings that preceded her death he unfolded his own hidden life. The value of the book lies in its remarkable simplicity coupled with its unsurpassed poetic beauty.

📒The Servant S Hand ✍ Bruce Robbins
📝The Servant s Hand Book Synopsis : A work of innovative literary and cultural history, The Servant's Hand examines the representation of servants in nineteenth-century British fiction. Wandering in the margins of these texts that are not about them, servants are visible only as anachronistic appendages to their masters and as functions of traditional narrative form. Yet their persistence, Robbins argues, signals more than the absence of the "ordinary people" they are taken to represent. Robbins's argument offers a new and distinctive approach to the literary analysis of class, while it also bodies forth a revisionist counterpolitics to the realist tradition from Homer to Virginia Woolf. Originally published in 1986 (Columbia University Press), The Servant's Hand is appearing for the first time in paperback.

It is a spotlight that will make you see the painting of your life with more clarity than you ever thought possible. It will help you acquire a better understanding of your Being in the context of the cosmic consciousness of the universe, and of the magic of the eternal present moment. In these still early manifestations of the Age of Aquarius, new ways of thinking are emerging, old thought patterns are being challenged, and new energies are being felt. The positive energy contained in certain words is here for you, in the pages of this book, 'a rosary of peace and initiation.' You are part of this rosary. Read it little by little. Reflect upon its words and its teaching. Catch its radiant light. Before long, if you are ready deep inside, it will change your life." (from the book's Foreword)

📒Isaiah 53 ✍ Gerald Sigal
📝Isaiah 53 Book Synopsis : Who is the servant of Isaiah 52:13-53:12? Answering this question is what this study is all about. Through the centuries countless commentaries have been written, tracts have been distributed, debates have raged over the identification of the servant in this passage. Here we investigate the evidence presented over the last 2000 thousand years for the two leading candidates for this role of servant of the Lord. The two are Jesus and the Jewish people. Christians see in this passage the literal fulfillment by Jesus of all it contains. Jews see it in its plain meaning as a historical overview of Jewish history and the suffering to be endured by the nation of Israel until the final redemption. Source materials used by opposing sides in discussing this passage are thoroughly reviewed. In particular, each verse in the passage is studied in depth. But, the purpose of this volume is not simply to have an intellectual discussion of the issues involved. Its intent is to make it an unavoidable issue for Christians that there are very real disqualifications of Jesus from being the suffering servant and to identify the subject of the servant passage as none other than the nation of Israel. Furthermore, we seek to educate Jews so they do not fall prey to those who would have them believe Jesus is the Messiah.
📒Daughter Of The Frost ✍ Dr. Stephen Spyrison
📝Daughter of the Frost Book Synopsis : In this vision-story of a past life, a young girl came to a small mountain village in China in the far distant past. Tseliki lived as a simple peasant-servant, and in pursuit of a singular passion: skating. In the process, she seduced the town and its people to her ways of being human and compassionate. She sought to impose upon or change no one, but change, they did. Her village became a haven of non-war, sharing and caring for each other and their neighbors. This is her quiet story. Daughter of the Frost is also a love sonnet to god: a story of a peaceful vision and the possibilities that exist within our own visions of reality. It is delivered at a time when we believe ourselves to be far from a heaven-on-earth. It is to remind us that ‘on earth, as it is in heaven’ is the destiny that is simply the cumulated result -the consequence- of each life lived one moment at a time- of one kind action and thought at a time, one after another, in the moment of now. We may think that God is not so close, but perhaps it is not that God has not spoken to us lately, as much as we have listened too much to those who claim to be gods' representatives and have not placed our own ear upon the breast of the god/goddess, listening intimately to her heartbeat within whispering truth and joy into our soul. Have we forgotten how to listen to god? For the time to listen is here. And her message is simply that heaven-on-earth is not that far-distant or impossible as we may have been led to believe. My religion is kindness. The Dalai Lama This is a fictional book about possibilities and truths. . In order to begin to find new vistas, we must begin a new dialogue, and ask new questions, For much truth yet awaits us. Peace on earth, goodwill to men.
