This Week’s Capital Commentary
Over the course of the next months, we will hear many presidential hopefuls describe their leadership strengths and attempt to convince us of their suitability to elected office. Yet what makes a good leader? What qualities did the Bible’s great leaders display that are essential in our contemporary context?
In this article, William Edgar reflects on three components that he believes are critical to wise leadership. Weaving together theological reflection with historical examples, Edgar provides a helpful overarching framework for Christians to consider when evaluating the candidates and cutting through the noise of campaign rhetoric.
