About this book

This edited collection uses a biblical lens to explore how to lead effectively and grow in a crisis situation. The chapters examine topics such as communicating through crisis, developing organizations and leaders through crisis, personal crisis and leadership development, and ethics and morality in crisis. Case studies include David's response to Goliath's challenge, Joseph's leadership and management of Egypt, and the team leadership and resilience of Esther and Mordecai in navigating a possible Jewish genocide.This book makes a unique contribution to the crisis leadership literature by examining the topic from a Christian perspective and will foster future research into the role of spirituality in organizational crisis.
