Leadership for a Time of Pandemic
Leadership for a Time of Pandemic: Practicing Resilience
Why this book? Bolsinger believes that “As the days of shelter-in-place turned into weeks and weeks turned into months, most experts acknowledged that the global pandemic that has led to tens of thousands of deaths is likely to be more like ‘a little ice age’ than a long winter or a stormy blizzard” (p. 3). Even before the pandemic churches as we know them have been dying. Church as we know them will need to be reinvented.
What is so different about this book? Bolsinger does not offer the reader a prediction or a prescription. Bolsinger draws “. . . from the best of leadership literature and Christian spiritual formation to offer a way of leading and a process of leadership formation” (p. 6).
