Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Speakers often use the words vision, boldness, and influence to describe the characteristics of effective leaders. Perry Noble, in The Most Excellent Way to Lead, makes the case that the heart of great leadership lies elsewhere. Perry, despite “winning” the label “least likely to succeed” in high school, beat the odds against him. Today, he inspires thirty-five thousand people every weekend to live for something greater than themselves. He credits this achievement to the leadership principles he has learned from the Bible. Surprisingly, the essence of leadership that produces genuine growth is buried in a Bible chapter often read at weddings. In this groundbreaking book, Perry walks us through that leadership chapter, describing the fifteen qualities of an inspirational leader.
Whether you are an entrepreneur or a new parent, this book will encourage you to see every opportunity in life as a chance to lead in the “most excellent way.”
"In a world full of leadership advice, this book rises to the top as a most excellent resource. Instead of just addressing the how to lead questions, this book equips leaders with the heart attitude we must bring no matter our methods. Honestly, if there was one leadership message I wish the world would really get, it's contained in this book by my friend, Perry Noble."
—Lysa TerKeurst, President of Proverbs 31 Ministries and New York Times Bestselling Author of The Best Yes
"Perry is a good friend do mine and has written another terrific book. He's the right guy to talk about leadership, because he leads with love. He's not afraid to be out front, but knows the power of getting behind people. Perry is a guy who lives a life in constant anticipation of what could happen if we led and loved people the way God leads and loves us. When you turn the last page of this book, you won't want to lead more like Perry, you'll want to lead more like Jesus."
—Bob Goff, Love Does + Restore International
"You know a leader when you see one. They are always surrounded by fantastic people doing important things. That certainly describes my friend Perry. In his first leadership book, The Most Excellent Way to Lead, Perry looks at leadership through a familiar lens while offering unique insight and Monday morning application."
—Andy Stanley, Senior Pastor, North Point Ministries
My friend Perry's book The Most Excellent Way to Lead is a timely work on leadership and quickly gets to the heart of the matter. He carefully expounds on the biblical example and perspective Jesus gives us - effective leadership centered on love. Anyone, leading anything or anyone, should read this book for a fresh and challenging call to leadership.
—Judah Smith Lead Pastor - The City Church, Seattle WA, NY Times Best selling author, Jesus Is _____.
"Perry Noble is one of the best leaders I know. His book The Most Excellent Way to Lead is packed full of helpful, practical, biblical truths to help you become a better leader. Not only will this book help you lead better, it will help you love better too. Grab copies for your whole team, and get ready to grow."
—Craig Groeschel, senior pastor of Life.Church and author of #Struggles: Following Jesus in a Selfie-Centered World
"Foundational. Essential. Rare. The Most Excellent Way To Lead is written through a unique lens. This book is different from any other leadership book on your shelf. Perry Noble does a brilliant job of pointing us to Scripture to find the basic principles of leadership. Every leader should read this book, and soak in the biblical truths of its pages. As we do, we will find ourselves becoming more like Jesus, the greatest leader of all time!"
—Louie Giglio, Passion City Church/Passion Conferences
"Perry Noble's insights in The Most Excellent Way to Lead are foundational for every leader. He dissects 1 Corinthians 13, a chapter most people identify with marriage relationships, and applies it right to the heart of leadership. If you want to become a better leader, this thought-provoking, candid book is for you."
—Robert Morris, founding senior pastor of Gateway Church and bestselling author of The Blessed Life, From Dream to Destiny, and Truly Free
"Perry Noble is a one of a kind leader. With God's help, he has experienced the kind of growth and effectiveness most leaders only dream about. Many who have observed his mind blowing success from a distance have asked me what I think the secret is. Now, I can just refer them to The Most Excellent Way to Lead, because, in trademark Perry Noble fashion, he has laid it all on the table in these pages. The real, raw, radical leadership philosophy and practices of Perry Noble will rock your perspective if you let them. I know firsthand. So much of the confidence I have today as a leader is due to the example and investment of my friend. And, as you're about to see, he got them from a rather reliable source."
—Furtick; Lead Pastor, Elevation Church & New York Times best-selling author
"The Most Excellent Way to Lead is a book that will change every reader's life. Perry Noble is one of the greatest leaders of our generation and I cannot think of any person more qualified to teach on the subject of leadership. In his newest book, Perry gives readers practical tips on leadership as well as deep, insightful, spiritual teaching that is presented in a way that every reader can grasp. If you are an aspiring leader, or even just looking to become a more well rounded person, I cannot recommend this book more highly."
—Matthew Barnett, CEO of The Dream Center
"Perry is a leader's leader and someone I both respect and learn from regularly. I especially love Perry's deep honesty, transparency and authenticity. The fact that leading with love is both necessary AND difficult spills out over every page of this book. Perry's honesty and courage in his struggle to lead and love well give all of us hope. Any leader who struggles to love faithfully under the demands of leadership will grow as they read The Most Excellent Way to Lead."
—Carey Nieuwhof, Author Teaching Pastor, Connexus Church
"I've known Perry since we were teenagers. When I met him, he'd just become a Christian. Now, nearly 25 years later, I'm amazed at how God has used him as a pastor and a leader. These pages are Perry's heart and soul poured out in your hands. He lives each one of these principles daily, and he practices what he preaches consistently. You will benefit from the wisdom and experience he shares, as well as his insights into scripture and how that practically helps you become a more loving, effective leader. This book is a gift to leaders, business owners, pastors, entrepreneurs, parents and coaches...and just about anyone that wants to make a difference in other people's lives."
—Clayton King, Evangelist, Pastor, and Author of Stronger, Founder of Crossroads Missions and Summer Camps
"Perry Noble is one of my favorite people. He leads with a genuine heart, a willingness to learn and a belief that the best is yet to come. The NewSpring Church story is the result of what happens when people are committed to leading in the most excellent way possible. One of the reasons I purchased this book for our staff is I want us to learn everything we possibly can about leading this way. Like NewSpring, we believe the best is yet to come for our church. After reading Perry's new book, you'll believe the same way too."
—Jeff Henderson, Gwinnett Church Lead Pastor
