Who are you when the teeth come out?

For every true act of leadership, there is an equal and monstrous act of sabotage.

Look Inside the Book

Our leaders have been entirely routed by the agitated and the anxious. These emotional tyrannies manifest themselves in local libraries, HR cubicles, elder meetings, and at your Thanksgiving dinners.

In this book Professor Joe Rigney seeks to recover the nerve of old that steadied leaders to make tough calls. The nerve that braces them when sabotage comes--because it will. The nerve that has more fun than its enemies.

Cheer up, there's no way out but through.

People Are Saying:

"Outstanding...Biblical leadership for the unique cultural moment we’re in. It will challenge you.”~Andrew T. Walker, Associate Professor of Christian Ethics and Public Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Weak leaders often fail by a failure of nerve (especially by fearing to take stands at the risk of displeasing people). In this book Joe explains what a leader should do when people are highly reactive and anxious and combustible—like a gas leak that can explode with just a spark.”~Andy Naselli —Professor of Systematic Theology and New Testament for Bethlehem College and Seminary in Minneapolis and one of the pastors of The North Church

“A critical and sobering read for fathers and organizational leaders. With pinpoint accuracy Rigney diagnoses the chaotic ethos of our age and draws from the wellspring of Scriptural wisdom to reintroduce joyful and steadfast leadership in Christ.”~Jeremy Tate, CEO of the Classical Learning Test

Joe Rigney serves as Fellow of Theology at New Saint Andrews College. He is a husband, a father of three, and the author of a number of books, including Things of Earth and Strangely Bright.
