Review of SPIRITUAL INFLUENCE by Mel Lawrenz

SPIRITUAL INFLUENCE by Mel Lawrenz is a book that looks at the subject of leadership from a distinctly biblical perspective, and the interesting thing about the book is that, though it’s written by a pastor, the principles contained in it aren’t just for church leaders. Lawrenz shows that leaders from all walks of life, in every area where leadership is required, are called to be influencers. Spiritual influence is powerful because it is guiding people with the best of God’s intentions for people in mind.

SPIRITUAL INFLUENCE is about the spread of the kingdom of God, and Lawrenz spends a lot of time talking about engaging with God and serving as a vehicle of leadership. Another high point of the book is how to deal with failure, looking at how to properly categorize failures and learn from them.

Influence is vitally important for people who take their leadership roles in people’s lives seriously when it comes to the potential of spreading God’s kingdom. SPIRITUAL INFLUENCE is a great resource to help people think through how God wants to use them to impact people’s lives.

I received this book for free for review from Zondervan, and the opinions contained in this review are completely my own
