Can King David Inspire Today's Leaders?
Thirty Days With King David: On Leadership Is Available for Pre-Sale Now
Front Edge Publishing is proud to announce the second book in their 30 Days With series, Thirty Days With King David by pastor, educator and leadership coach Larry Buxton. In turbulent times, King David united a nation—and his hard-earned wisdom can bring us together today. This new 30 Days With book offers a month of readings plus ideas for small-group discussion. David ranks among the world's greatest heroes for defeating Goliath and for writing Psalms we read every day. He is honored by Jews, Christians and Muslims. In this book, pastor, educator and leadership coach Larry Buxton shows us how David embodies 14 crucial values shared by effective leaders to this day.
Answering that call in the opening pages are two nationally known political leaders—one a Democrat and one a Republican, who came together in these pages to urge all of us to read these 30 short stories drawn from David's often tragically learned lessons about life.
In his Foreword, U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine writes: "From the blockbuster arc of David's life, Larry Buxton assembles 30 short chapters on key leadership traits—patience, vision, humility, integrity, openness, tenderness, forgiveness, courage, gratitude, self-control, surrender, perseverance, calmness, justice. Buxton helps us see how David either exhibited these values or catastrophically failed to achieve them. The chapters are probing and conversational—
In his Preface, Andrew H. Card, who served in Washington D.C. during two Bush administrations, writes: "If you aspire to be a leader: read this book. It is a road map and will become a conscience. If you are a leader: read this book. It will have you reflecting on how you accepted and responded to that challenge. If you are teaching leaders: read this book. You will have new context to launch leaders of character to meet the challenges of the future."
