Summary

Explorers Lewis and Clark had to adapt. While they had prepared to find a waterway to the Pacific Ocean, instead they found themselves in the Rocky Mountains. You too may feel that you are leading in a cultural context you were not expecting. You may even feel that your training holds you back more often than it carries you along. Drawing from his extensive experience as a pastor and consultant, Tod Bolsinger brings decades of expertise in guiding churches and organizations through uncharted territory. He offers a combination of illuminating insights and practical tools to help you reimagine what effective leadership looks like in our rapidly changing world. If you're going to scale the mountains of ministry, you need to leave behind canoes and find new navigational tools. Listening to this book will set you on the right course to lead with confidence and courage.

An Adventure Awaits

Bolsinger does a great job weaving Scripture, America's pioneering spirit and practical theology. This is a great resource for a church's leadership team. It is loaded with good questions and honest reflections by author.

Great paradigm

Bolsinger offers an insightful paradigm for leaders, sketching a model of adaptive leadership, illustrated by facets of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Very helpful take on adaptive leadership for folks in the Church.

Into the Unknown!

An excellent visionary challenge with practical steps to lead the church, and others, into the new world around us. The reader was very good also.

Thought-provoking and timely.

My husband and I listened to this together on a road trip and enjoyed interacting with the ideas as they relate to our ministry situation.

absolutely amazing thought-provoking book

Even though the author and I share disagreements on church polity and how things should be handled, the parallel with Lewis and Clark as a road map into expanding the Christian church deserves careful thought and consideration.

Great analogies that applied to the story

Tod's experience provides the insight and credibility for this work. His examples provide a path for others to follow.

Excellent and informative

Lots of information on how to work change in church contexts. It includes a chapter on what to do when there is sabotage to ideas and plans. very solid and thorough book.

Both the book and the narrator were excellent!

A good amount of the content from this book is similar to Ron Heifetz's book on Practicing Adaptive Leadership. The principles in that book are distilled in this one and directed towards the church/church leadership. The observations in the journey of Lewis and Clark provide an excellent narrative for the book. Very great read!

Secular Leadership Spiritualized

This is one of many books on Christian leadership. The storyline is good and it illustrates leadership principles. However, the book is nearly void of Biblical illustrations and principles. The principles are clearly secular and for I was very disappointed. Scripture is full of leadership principles and amazing leaders with compelling stories. The author clearly missed the mark.
