Tom Houston held top jobs in several Christian organisations. This is the story of what he learned as he did them. He writes about his own experience. Then he tries to say what he thinks Jesus taught about governance in a well known story from the gospels. He moves on to tackle what he calls Jesus’ kind of church from the words of Jesus, Peter and Paul. To round it off he has some thoughts on the other kind of church and their impact on the nations to which they belong.
