Lessons In Spiritual Leadership
BY ELTON TRUEBLOOD
In this classic work, Quaker philosopher Elton Trueblood shows how Lincoln's leadership skills flowed directly from his religious convictions-which explains how the president was able to combine what few leaders can hold together: moral resoluteness with a shrewd ability to compromise; confidence in his cause while refusing to succumb to the traps of self-righteousness or triumphalism; and a commitment to victory while never losing sight of his responsibility for-or the humanity of-his enemy. These rich meditations offer deep wisdom and insight on one of the most effective leaders of all time.
