This publication, written by a managment consultant, looks at the leadership style of Jesus. In part one, we discover what leadership practices were prevalent in Jesus' day; what Greek and Hebrew traditions shaped Jesus' notion of leadership; and how he established himself as a leader in contrast to the corrupt power figures of his day - Herod, Caesar and the Chief Priests. Part two explores Jesus' leadership qualities and vision that, on the one hand, inspired the disciples to leave everything and follow him and, on the other, made him powerful enemies. His fund of stories, healing miracles, his knowledge of the law and abiblity to interpret it afresh, his challenge to the authorities and his answers to their questions designed to entrap him - all this gave him charisma. Yet most extraordinary of all was his vision of a kindgom where leaders were servants, defeat could become a victory and death be transformed into new life. Part three looks at leaders throughout history who have modelled themselves on Jesus and asks where the "New Nazarenes" can be found in today's world.
