The Influential Christian
Learning to Lead from the Heart
Michael W. Andrews
As Christians, each of us is called to bring people together through the Spirit of God. By developing our inner character—our heart—we can have a greater role in other people’s lives, and others can have more significance in our own growth as leaders. Genuine influence is a deep summons to our most authentic selves—an exciting exploration that is often missing in our culture of quick fixes and easy advice.
In The Influential Christian, Michael W. Andrews reveals how engaging in spiritual practices that exercise empathy allows us to cultivate influence in our personal, professional, and spiritual lives. Drawing upon God’s spiritual resources as we interact with other people, we build the integrity necessary to be empathic leaders.
As readers will discover, building character is much more than completing a checklist of self-improvement initiatives—it’s a pilgrimage into the full meaning of being human and being Christian.
