    • Also read back in 2013. Still the best book on leadership I have ever read. It needs to be revisited every couple of years. Here are the things I liked. First, it is comprehensive, covering internal things, such as honesty, as well as external things such as managing and dealing with the media. There is no topic associated with leadership that he doesn't touch on. But it is important to note that while much applies to pastors, it was not written for pastors. Second, he frequently encourages men [...]


    • This was a really fantastic book. There were a few chapters which I had slight disagreements with or nitpicky thoughts about, but on the whole this book was well done, principled, and practical. I wish I had read it years ago, though I see that it only came out 3 years ago. Mohler makes a strong case for convictional leadership, and he is refreshingly forward-thinking in many of the ways he sees contemporary application. The chapter on management actually hit me the hardest, which should tell yo [...]


    • I have a confession to make: I really don't like leadership books.Don't get me wrong. I read books on leadership frequently, and I understand the value that good books on leadership add to my own ability to lead. In many ways, leadership is a very pragmatic subject, and I've greatly benefited from many of the ones I've read. I've just never actually enjoyed one before.Until now.Mohler makes no effort to hide the fact that The Conviction to Lead is categorically different from the plethora of o [...]


    • There are an innumerable number of books on the subject of leadership. Everyone wants to be a leader and everyone is willing to tell you how to do it.So how is this book any different?First off, it is written by Albert Mohler, who is one of the clearest and most insightful voices in all of Christendom. If you aren't currently subscribed to his blog, you should be. He is also the president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and is responsible for leading the institution back to its founding [...]


    • I enjoyed this book from the moment I started reading, and never tired of it till I put it down. Excellent; and ambitious as its author. Mohler begins, “I want to fundamentally change the way leadership is understood and practiced” (15). How? By emphasizing the centrality of conviction to biblical leadership. And who better to write on the topic? Another fitting subtitle for this book would be, “How to Be Like Al Mohler.” But that’s okay, because many of us appreciate what Mohler has a [...]


    • Maybe three stars is a bit overly critical, but I expected something better. Mohler states at the outset that he wants to change how the reader thinks about leadership. I don't think he accomplished that in me, but that is not to say his book isn't useful or wise. The main theme is that leaders need to lead according to their convictions. Mohler devotes a short chapter (usually seven pages) to each of 25 leadership principles. Each bit of advice was fine, but there are two main critiques I would [...]


    • I'm not one to read lots of leadership books as it's just not something that I'm drawn to. I did find this book helpful in many ways. Mohler not only talked about what it looks like to be a leader but also had plenty of application to help you get there. I found the chapters on reading, writing, time, and social media/digital age most helpful.


    • Great resource for any leader. Mohler combines his experience in training the next generation of Christian leaders with the best of what you can find in other leadership genres. The difference for Mohler, though, is leadership grounded in truth.


    • Really more of a 4.5 star book. The 25 short chapters is an ideal format because it keeps everything concise. The insights are strong. The practical and visionary aspects are equally balanced and strong. I really appreciated this book.


    • Very helpful in some ways (and a little boring in others). I'd give it 3 1/2 stars if I could. This isn't my favorite genre, but Mohler does provide several helpful principles for leadership. The book is very thin on implementation. It's strength is to instruct the reader on what's most important, rather than explain how to do it.I especially appreciated his insistence on "conviction" as the foundation of leadership (given a chapter of its own, but also repeated throughout the book). And the sev [...]


    • This is a great read for any leader. The principles laid out in the book apply to any leadership position. What I found great about this book was that Dr. Mohler went beyond the platitudes about leadership that are abundant today and gave practical applicable advice.


    • A clear, hearty read. Full of pithy statements on leadership to stir anyone aspiring to lead well. Mohler's core message is that conviction must fuel, as well as govern, all that a leader does, and leaders can't delegate their convictions. Some indeed lead from conviction, while others "merely hold an office." His reflections on the power of language and the imminence of death were especially noteworthy.


    • Dr. Albert Mohler is qualified to speak authoritatively on many subjects, but there are perhaps few he is more qualified to address than leadership. For that reason when he writes a book on leadership it is safe to assume that your time will be well spent reading it. The Conviction to Lead is precisely that; a book on leadership written by Dr. Mohler. While it is a book on leadership its design is to be something other than one more volume to add to the mountainous pile of works dedicated to the [...]


    • This was a great book. I deeply respect Al Mohler, and this book only increased that admiration. I look forward to when one of Mohler’s students decides to write his biography so that we can all take a look into the miracle of SBTS. In Conviction to Lead, Mohler gives twenty-five principles of leadership. Of course, these principles are intrinsically biblical reflecting Mohler’s comprehensive worldview, but they are also practical. I think you can divide the principles into three somewhat o [...]


    • Dr. mohler has done an excellent job assisting and empowering the Christian leader in his newest book, The Conviction to Lead. The goal and through line of the book is, just as the title indicates, conviction. Mohler agrues that conviction is the overarching trait that trumps all other leadership skills. A leader without conviction will fail. The thing that I really appreciate about this book is that it is very practical. There are no pie in the sky ideas. Rather Mohler offers clear and concise [...]


    • This book is solid gold. Though Dr. Mohler is a first-rate preacher, he is even more fundamentally a leader. Leadership is where Mohler has made (and is making) his most enduring mark on the world and in this book we learn how he does it. The 25 brief chapters throb with the passion and conviction that Mohler embodies and believes is required of all true leaders. Here is wisdom gleaned from Mohler's extensive leadership experience as well as leadership experts and great leaders from history. Rea [...]


    • This was the best book I have read on leadership. Only Rumsfeld's Rules comes close in offering aides to an active leader. Mohler tells the reader the the leaders are thinkers,teachers,communicators, readers, managers,decision makers, speakers, and writers. Leaders have character, credibility, moral virtue, passion, and convictions. He or she have intelligence and understands worldviews. As I read this book I was amazed to see how Obama is lacking in the twenty-five skills that Mohler list as ne [...]


    • One of if not the best book I've read on leadership. It is solid biblically and theoretically, easy to read, and quite practical too. It has definitely motivated me to nail down my convictions and begin to learn how I might better communicate those convictions to those I lead or may lead in the future.


    • Excellent book on Leadership. Dr. Mohler lays out clear principles of what leadership is and how to apply each of those principles. What is leadership? Al Mohler defines it as, "Leadership is conviction transformed into united action." I highly recommend this book to all men and those especially in positions of leadership.


    • Al Mohler's book shows how true leadership comes from conviction, and helps you apply that conviction to various practical aspects of leadership. I would recommend this book to anyone who is or aspires to be a leader.


    • Good principles for Christian leaders in the workplace. Does have somewhat sloppy scriptural analysis in my opinion.




    • I haven't enjoyed a book this much in a while. Easy to read, full of wisdom, and autobiographical of a leader who lives out his convictions. Would recommend to all who feel called to leadership.


    • “25 Principles For Leadership That Matters”About the Book:Leadership Principles from a Renowned Agent of Change “Cultures and organizations do not change without strong leadership. While many leadership books focus on management or administration, the central focus of The Conviction to Lead is on changing minds. Dr. Mohler was the driving force behind the transformation of Southern Seminary from a liberal institution of waning influence to a thriving evangelical seminary at the heart of th [...]


    • The title of this book is an apt one. Leadership is ultimately a conviction and is best found in people who have other very strong convictions. In his chapter "Leading is Believing," Mohler states, "Without conviction, nothing really matters, and nothing of significance is passed on," and throughout the rest of this book, it is made perfectly clear that beliefs, character, and convictions matter. Considering conviction is a foundation of faith (Hebrews 11:1), and faith is the foundation of follo [...]


    • At a time when many look at organized religion as fraudulent and non-Biblical, Dr. Mohler has written a book that motivates the reader to do more. Author of the book Albert Mohler, Jr. is president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, which is clearly a true form of leadership. He gets to the crux of the purpose of the book in the very first sentence, “Let me warn you right up front – my goal is to change the way you think about leadership.” There have been many books written abou [...]


    • Title: The Conviction to Lead: 25 Principles for Leadership that MattersAuthor: Albert MohlerPublisher: Bethany House PublishersPublishing Year: 2012Pages: 224My Rating: 5 out of 5 (1 meaning I hated the book, 5 meaning I loved the book)There are certainly no shortage of books about leadership. Yet, in my few short years on earth, I’ve learned that whenever Al Mohler decides to address an issue, I need to pay attention. So, what does Dr. Mohler add to our public discourse on leadership? In a w [...]


    • A neat book that's worth the time of any upcoming leader. Seasoned leaders may avoid, though they might find it useful for teaching others. The strength of the book also serves as its weakness. While it covers many topics of interest for the leader’s consideration, it can only do so at an average rate of 6 – 8 pages. Perhaps a good introductory book to work out where your strengths and weaknesses are that can be read at a deeper level in another book.
