The Unfinished Gospel: Failure is not Final


My Work is not finished; My failure is not final; Gods Grace will have the last word” – The Christian Leader who inspired this book 

If you read the literature and believe the ads, the path of christian leadership promises flourishing cultures, maturing members, and changing worlds. Just beneth the surface of popularity, however is the evidence that so many of todays christ-centered leaders feel like failures-bummed out, burned out, broken, and ready to drop out.

David Mckenna addresses this conlict from the perspective of 70 years as a leader in the church and christian higher education. He minces no words. Christ-centered leadership is far more than adopting secular theories of leadership development with an overlay scripture and spiritual discipline. Mckenna defines christ-centered leadership as an arduous and never-ending journey of transforming grace.
