I'm slightly torn on what to think of this book. On one hand, it's a fine book that describes (in a lively and readable manner) the shift from modernity to postmodernity and how that has given rise to the phenomenon sometimes described as the emerging church. On the other hand, most of this was repetition for me. Interesting, well-written repetion but nevertheless...
In fact, I find the title slightly misleading inasmuch as I grabbed the book and started reading it thinking that it was primarily a book on leadership. It isn't ... primarily. Section 3 (from p 213 onwards) is in reality the only part of the book that talks specifically about leadership. Sections 1 & 2 describe the paradigm shifts that, in Keel's view, necessitates new approaches to leadership. But if you're well versed in those paradigm shifts, you could skip to page 213 without missing much. That said, the book is overall well-written and interesting. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801068134, Paperback)

As our culture shifts from modern to postmodern, pastors and church leaders are finding that old, rigid church leadership systems and structures no longer seem to work. Church leaders are searching for and discovering new, creative ways of leading--emphasizing intuition, creativity, narrative, and an embrace of the chaos and tension of our time. Tim Keel, pastor of a thriving emergent church and a rising leader in the emergent church movement, offers a thought-provoking yet practical exploration of this new style he calls Intuitive Leadership. His fresh approach will be welcomed by pastors and lay leaders interested in the emergent conversation and how Christian mission should look in our rapidly changing culture.
