Moral Leadership for a Divided Age : Fourteen People Who Dared to Change Our World

Description

Great moral leaders inspire, challenge, and unite us--even in a time of deep divisions. Moral Leadership for a Divided Age explores the lives of fourteen great moral leaders and the wisdom they offer us today. Through skillful storytelling and honest appraisals of their legacies, we encounter exemplary human beings who are flawed in some ways, gifted in others, but unforgettable all the same.

The authors tell the stories of remarkable leaders, including Ida B. Wells-Barnett, William Wilberforce, Harriet Tubman, Florence Nightingale, Mohandas Gandhi, Malala Yousafzai, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Oscar Romero, Pope John Paul II, Elie Wiesel, Mother Teresa, Abraham Lincoln, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Short biographies of each leader combine with a tour of their historical context, unique faith, and lasting legacy to paint a vivid picture of moral leadership in action. Exploring these lives makes us better leaders and people and inspires us to dare to change our world.
