Tom Harper


I am an avid observer of great leaders. I love to read the latest books on the topic - whether they are written for business, non-profit or the church. The skill set for leaders is basically the same across all these sectors.

Over the years, I have found that the Bible is the ultimate leadership book. It is full of theory as well as illustrations; biographies as well as first-person narratives.

At one point I thought I wanted to go into ministry. Instead, I stayed in business and ended up writing Career Crossover: Leaving the Marketplace for Ministry. I got to talk to many people who crossed over, though it did not end up being my own path.

These days I feel passionate about bringing biblical principles into the marketplace and other secular areas. Biblical concepts work just as well in business, education, non-profit, sports and government – anywhere there are leaders.

The problem I see, however, is biblical principles are severely lacking in all these places, including the church.

So what to do about it?

I feel God has been prompting me to spread the Word through practical books and resources. I want to help people see the wisdom and truth contained in the Scriptures.

Most people look at the Bible as a source of spiritual truths, but they fail to realize how practical it is for wise living in the everyday world. They look elsewhere for more leadership guidance, missing the treasure trove right in front of them.

The Bible has much to say about leadership. If you take the time read it, you’ll encounter exciting concepts, truisms and promises that could revolutionize your life and leadership.

May you discover the riches waiting for you in God's Word!
