I’ve Got Your Back
A Leadership Parable
Biblical Principles for Leading and Following Well.
James C. Galvin ©2012
This book could totally change Christian understanding of leadership and how to follow.
Dr. Galvin presents four levels of leaders and four of followers. He also asserts that only good followers can be good leaders. I’ve Got Your Back begins with a story of four young people, each dealing with a different type of bad leader. They agree together to meet weekly with a mentor, to learn how to deal with follower-abuse. Each one develops unexpected and effective skills.
The last part of the book presents a theological support for Dr. Gavin’s leader and follower theses.
Well-writtten, this engaging book will bring relief to those who believe we must always submit to poor or autocratic leaders. The author clarifies who we must always obey and with whom we can respectfully disagree.
