"This book is a masterful description of the distinct difference biblical leadership makes. Mike Ayers has addressed this issue in a scholarly, yet very practical way. We have needed these pages that focus so clearly on the Word of God and the biblical description of leadership.”
James T. Draper Jr.
President Emeritus, LifeWay Christian Resources
"In Power to Lead, Mike Ayers shares a wealth of practical wisdom, but he goes first and foremost at the most important component of biblical leadership—the heart. This challenging and insightful work is a must-read for anyone wanting to learn what leadership shaped by the heart of Jesus looks like.”
Jared C. Wilson
Director of Content Strategy for Midwestern Seminary, Managing Editor of For The Church (ftc.co), and author of The Prodigal Church
"At a time when leadership books tend to only focus upon certain elements of this important topic, Mike Ayers posits a comprehensive and well-arranged treatment of biblical leadership. He not only stays true to the biblical text but also offers several real-life practical examples and applications. Mike's experience as a scholar, professor and pastor allows him to thoroughly analyze the subject of leadership as well as integrate his findings into a clear and cohesive presentation. Mike offers a much-needed and unique perspective. I know this will be one book that I will have on my shelf."
