Using the metaphor of massive foundations of bridges not visible to the eye but essential to long-term viability and strength, Gordon MacDonald delves into the qualities needed for lasting leadership. “. . . the work done below the waterline—in the leader’s soul—determines whether he or she will stand the test of time and challenge. This work is called worship, devotion, spiritual discipline. It’s done in quiet, where no one but God sees.”
