The Crucible of Leadership: Learning from the Story of Moses

This week I have signed a contract with Instant Apostle for the publication of a book I have been working on. The book is The Crucible of Leadership: Learning from the Story of Moses, and it should be available in May/June of next year.

His formative years were spent in Egypt where he had been born into a family of Hebrew slaves but remarkably ended up being raised as a member of the royal family. A failed attempt to lead a liberation movement resulted in his being pitched unceremoniously into the wilderness years – forty years spent in the Midianite desert where the peak of his career appears to have been taking care of his father-in-law’s sheep – quite a contrast with some of the traditional understandings of his time in Egypt which tell tales of military prowess! Finally, after a remarkable encounter with God on the edge of the desert, his life takes another dramatic turn and he becomes a reluctant leader, going on to spend the next forty years navigating the highs and lows of leadership in the desert.

The Crucible of Leadership explores the life-shaping journey of leadership by weaving together a series of reflections and framing them in the context of the remarkable story of Moses as it has come down to us in our Bible.
