Lessons of Spiritual Leadership from the Life of Samson, the Nazirite
by Oghenovo Obrimah
In this book, I demonstrate that while we can learn from Samson's mistakes, there are significant leadership lessons to be derived from Samson's life, attitude, faith, decisions, and actions. After all, while we must not minimize the importance of God's grace, God's characterization of Samson as a hero of faith implies Samson got a lot more things right than he got wrong.
