"It has been a very long time since I've read a book on leadership that moved me, challenged me, gave me fresh insights, and went beyond the typical 'here's how you get it done' approach. Neil takes the person, the context, and God's Word, and mixes them in a powerful way for a life of leadership."--Bob Roberts Jr., senior pastor, Northwood Church; author, Transformation and Glocalization
"Organic Leadership will trouble you--but more importantly, it will challenge you. And you should read it because the church could use some troubling and a new challenge."--Ed Stetzer, author and researcher
"This book is a prophetic call for a more discipleship-based, grassroots, and inspirational form of leadership in our time. And it further proves why Neil Cole is one of the most important voices in the Western church today."--Alan Hirsch, author, The Forgotten Ways and ReJesus; co-founder, shapevine.com
"Neil isn't afraid to examine presuppositions that can paralyze the church, especially since we naturally gravitate toward centralization, institutions, models, and calcified attitudes."--Dave Gibbons, author, The Monkey and the Fish
"In Organic Leadership you will find insights and tools to help you and your church expand your kingdom reach."--Bob Buford, founder, Leadership Network; author, Halftime and Finishing Well
