Steve Cuss helps leaders apply living systems thinking to the Christian life and Christian leadership. He is a very engaging story teller who combines a clear grasp of system theory that he integrates effectively with his faith. His experience as chaplain and pastor provide a rich context for helping translate the power of system thinking into practical tools for Christian living. Every Christian will benefit from reading this book. Pastors, seminarians, and congregational leaders will find this an especially helpful resource.
