Leadership Lessons Pulled From the Junkyard
Roy grew up in a junkyard, which taught him that even the unlikeliest characters can get the job done . . . and often right under the noses of the powerful and privileged. Roys sees that in Scripture too. Looking at the Bible through the lens of leadership—and vice versa—allows him to celebrate and cultivate the leadership ability of all people, not just those our culture assumes will lead. This book’s edgy sense of humor is centered on a grace-filled heart, making it a fresh and effective addition to our necessary conversation about true leadership.
