The servant as religious leader by Robert K Greenleaf( Book )

2 editions published between 1983 and 1996 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The importance of increasing the number of religious leaders and the roles of the seminary and church are considered. Religious leadership is needed to respond to widespread alienation in all sectors of society as well as to many institutions' inability or unwillingness to serve society. The leader needs three intellectual abilities: a sense for the unknowable, readiness for the unexpected, and foresight. It is claimed that seminaries are not supplying the ideas, the means of expression, or the leadership to increase the number of religious leaders, probably because they do not have among their trustees, faculty, or administrators enough people who think in terms of how things get done in complex institutional arrangements. The primary mission of the seminary should be leading and supporting churches as influential institutions. Whereas seminaries now primarily have an academic rather than formative role, the formation of religious leaders should be the main goal. The seminary faculty need to develop and articulate a contemporary theology of what makes religious leaders and the institutions they serve strong, and churches need to nurture the growth of strong, caring, and serving persons.
