In this honest book, pastor and author Scott Sauls exposes the real struggles that pastors and Christian leaders regularly face. Sauls shares his own stories and those of other leaders from Scripture and throughout history to remind us that we are human, we are sinners, and we need Jesus to help us thrive as people and leaders. For Christian leaders--both inside and outside of the church--weaknesses that are left unchecked can lead to a downfall that is both public and painful. They want to lead with character and live like Jesus, but ambition, isolation, criticism, envy, anticlimax, opposition, restlessness, and insecurity can get in the way. From Weakness to Strength provides leaders with tools to draw near to Jesus and stay encouraged and hopeful, even (and especially) when sin and struggle get in the way.

"I really want you to read this book, take it to heart, and ... understand why it's not just another book on leadership.... Until leaders have suffered, and have learned to steward their pain, they don't really have much to offer.... The longer I've known Scott, the more vulnerable he's become and, paradoxically, the more effective as a leader." Scotty Smith, pastor and author, The Gospel Coalition
