Amid the rapid changes shaking North American society, how can church leaders respond? Is this a time of crisis, or of opportunity and renewal? What skills will be required to lead effectively in the 21st century? Seismic Shifts offers an invitation to journey toward an authentic leadership for our time. Drawing on two decades of experience as a United Church minister and input from other leaders inside the church and out, Christopher White examines new directions in leadership. Case studies and interviews on the accompanying DVD illustrate the issues and bring them to life. A study guide relates book chapters to DVD segments for individual reflection or group study.
