IN THE NAME OF JESUS Reflections on Christian Leadership

by | Read by Brian Patrick

Spirituality • 70 min. • Abridged • © 2003

The late Dutch priest and author taught at Notre Dame, Harvard, and Yale before being called to lead a community for mentally handicapped people called L'Arche Daybreak. Moving from academia to raw emotional communion with the intellectually impaired taught him lessons he couldn't otherwise learn. He tells us that followers of Jesus are often lured by power into a style of leadership that is decidedly not God-like. "It seems easier to be God than to love God, easier to control people than to love people, easier to own life than to love life." All Christians should hear this heartfelt, gently narrated memoir, a wonderful collection of reflections. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
