Reviews

Jesus was able to motivate his staff of 12, ergo, there is much to be learned from his teachings, stresses California management consultant Jones, whose sentiments as expressed here ring with sincerity. Her thoughtful use of Jesus's biblical sayings on belief, boldness, discipline and the like add to her credibility. However, one wonders about the practical value of certain of her anecdotes, like the one about a ``phenomenally successful'' executive recruiter who imagines that God is on the line every time her office phone rings, which inspires her to do her utmost to serve the caller. And one questions Jones's notions regarding the Alpha, i.e., masculine, style of management and Beta, or feminine, use of power, as well as her Omega hypothesis, which incorporates both the Alpha and Beta approaches. Readers might do well to refer to the Bible on their own to glean the messages Jones presents. (Jan.)

The author, the owner of a marketing, advertising, and business development firm, examines the life of Jesus and gleans from it useful advice for leaders of businesses and other formal organizations. She observes that Jesus was particularly strong in three areas: self-mastery, action, and relationships. Using each of these strengths as a title for a section in the book, she reflects on various aspects of his life and teachings. Although some Christians might be surprised by some of her theological interpretations, e.g., one chapter is titled "He Kept in Constant Contact with his Boss," others will find this book a novel approach to the old problem of making Christian teachings relevant to modern organizational life. A similar but nonreligious approach to encouraging humane leadership is Keshavan Nair's A Higher Standard of Leadership: Lessons from the Life of Gandhi (LJ 12/1/84). Recommended for public libraries. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/1/94.]-Andrea C. Dragon, Coll. of St. Elizabeth, Convent Station, N.J.
