BAPTIST STANDARD REVIEW
BROKEN AND WHOLE
A LEADER’S PATH TO SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION
STEPHEN A. MACCHIA
Stephen A. Macchia, the founding president of Leadership Transformation, Inc., director of the Pierce Center for Disciple-Building at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and author of ten books including “Becoming a Healthy Church” has penned his new work “Broken and Whole”. This work takes the meaning phrase by phrase of 1 Corinthians 13 as each chapter has its subtitle a portion of “the Love chapter of the Bible”. The book is directed to those in leadership and Macchia speaks of his failures and failures and/or sin general. Every one of us have experienced the pitfalls he lists in this book. The author encourages us to see and implement the specific aspect of love that can overcome those failures.
For instance, in Chapter 7, the chapter title is “The Destructive Power of Unbridled Anger” and the subtitle is “Love is not easily angered”. Then each chapter ends with a “Spiritual Leadership Audit”—a spiritual inventory of where the reader is on what he/she has just read. Leaders will appreciate this work for their work in the Kingdom.
