9781412999083: Religious Leadership: A Reference Handbook

This 2-volume set within The SAGE Reference Series on Leadership tackles issues relevant to leadership in the realm of religion. It explores such themes as the contexts in which religious leaders move, leadership in communities of faith, leadership as taught in theological education and training, religious leadership impacting social change and social justice, and more. Topics are examined from multiple perspectives, traditions, and faiths.

Features & Benefits:

  • By focusing on key topics with 100 brief chapters, we provide students with more depth than typically found in encyclopedia entries but with less jargon or density than the typical journal article or research handbook chapter.
  • Signed chapters are written in language and style that is broadly accessible.
  • Each chapter is followed by a brief bibliography and further readings to guide students to sources for more in-depth exploration in their research journeys.
  • A detailed index, cross-references between chapters, and an online version enhance accessibility for today′s student audience.

Review:

"Editor Sharon Henderson Callahan has completed a monumental task in these two volumes, editing articles from more than one hundred perspectives on religious leadership. ... Two well-developed volumes with accompanying resource lists after each article and a thirty-page index provide leaders and scholars with an impressive array of topics for the field of religious leadership. The reference material surveys most of the topics that can be found in any leadership curriculum, conversation, or leadership formation practice. ... Another particular merit of these two volumes is the attention to diverse perspectives and voices in the choice of topics and authorship. Anyone scanning the table of contents will see significant representation of major faith traditions, conveying basic theological, sociological, historical, and spiritual emphasis for religious leaders. ... I will be using this resource in future courses, no question."--Lisa R. Withrow"Journal of Religious Leadership" (08/23/2014)

"This handbook comprises a rich, eclectic collection of scholarly essays offering a "snapshot of religious leadership in the United States in 2013...".Very sensibly, in addition to major movements, trends, and themes, the work gives proper attention to leaders of special prominence....With its energetic, eclectic approach, this work makes a unique contribution to the study of leadership, and is sure to be welcomed enthusiastically. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers."--D.R. Stewart"CHOICE" (12/01/2013)

"This reference handbook is a truly amazing collection of articles on the nature, context, exercise and goals of religious leadership (RL). ...The handbook also serves well as an extensive collection of expressions of religious leadership. It provides numerous texts for the study and comparison of structures and styles of religious leadership in their relationship to social and religious contexts. ...It provides rich descriptions that help to develop our understanding of the typologies of religious leadership. ...we need sources with this type of breadth and depth to study religious leadership in all its dimensions."
