Joshua - Lessons in the Wilderness

What I learned when no one was watching,
and what I did when everyone was.

Leadership is a hot topic. Some suggest everything hangs on it, and maybe it does. However the definition of christian leadership, and the defining of a leader doesn’t follow the tend of that offered by football coaches, military leaders, politicians and business gurus. Joshua is case in point. He never went to the equivalent of Ivy League, Oxford or Sandhurst Colleges. His Training was in a Wilderness, far from Comfort, recognition or Accolade. He was trained in active faith, serving another’s vision, god’s word and presence. It was these that defined him; It is these that define us with some form of wilderness thrown in for good measure.

Follow the Leader

Follow the Leader is an important and timely book because so few address the issue of following leaders, which is what most people find themselves doing.  Important, because no great vision is ever accomplished without the enormous array of skills that followers bring.  Timely, because the market is flooded with books written for and by leaders, who are, necessarily, in the minority. 

This title will inspire and liberate you.  For some, you will learn to be a better follower which could, one day, make you an infinitely better leader, and for others it will assist you to be all that you can be in helping the vision of your leader/s. Chapters such as 'Getting Over Leadership' and 'Pitfalls to Avoid' are invaluable insights to better help you for your present and future roles. 

Simon McIntyre has addressed an almost forgotten but entirely essential element of church and community life.

Brian Houston, the Leader of Hillsong Church writes - "I have known Simon McIntyre for over 30 years and have observed with admiration his great capacity, as  a gifted and capable man, to serve a visionary leader in an unflinching fashion. In my opinion, his authority to write a book entitled 'Follow the Leader' is beyond doubt - he has lived it."

Simon Says

Insight into this world, the next and everything in between

45 insightful articles in one book!

This book is written with a Christian worldview underpinning each of the articles. Sometimes this is obvious and sometimes not so. The contents, occasionally controversial, are inspired by current events, not so current events, theological concerns and random thoughts.

In them you will find insights on this life, the next life and everything in between.

Some of the articles were written with tears in the author’s eyes and some with acid in his veins. We hope you can tell the difference.

“Simon is a sharp Christian thinker - a believer anchored in the real world, someone who sees things differently. I have always enjoyed watching him seek to understand and explain how his faith fits his life and his life fits his faith. The musings of McIntyre are always interesting and insightful, challenging and alarming: just like the man himself. - A CEO of the Australian ABC Mark Scott
