You know, I almost didn’t read this book… I picked it up with a pile of other books from the library one week, and it almost went back unopened. That would have been a very real shame, because this book is one of the best short books on leadership that I have ever read!
Author Steve Farber weaves his truths into a story that is half business fable and half mystery. He tells the tale of a consultant who runs into a strange set of characters and circumstances, as he wrestles with various challenges – both external and internal.
The book is PG in it’s language – this is not a specifically Christian book, and Farber is obviously trying to represent reality in his story. It’s kind of a bummer, because the language doesn’t really make it seem any more real. The “mystery” part is fun, but not earth-shattering. What’s big here is the message – and, to give a hint – it’s all about love!
Solid advice and action steps make this both a practical and philosophical winner – top notch!
4.8 out of 5 stars!

Hmmm - well, let's see...
I'm a Christian, a husband, a dad, a son, a pastor, a consultant, a musician, a writer, and bits and pieces of a bunch of other things. My work life has followed three main phases - business to teaching to church. I was the Weekend Services Pastor for nine years at Northview Church, an awesome church in the Indianapolis suburbs. I used to work for Willow Creek, another awesome church in the Chicago area. Plus I've written for various magazines and websites, and other freelancy sorts of things... My life mission is to help the church be as excellent as it can be.
Oh yeah - the name's Greg. Greg Wallace. But not the race car driver or the major league pitcher or the British celebrity chef. Just the creative worship guy. Hi.
It's my hope that these ideas, musings, rants, raves, etc... will inspire you. They're just my opinions - but again, I hope that they'll help to inspire you. Because the church really, really needs inspired creative types. If you're a creative type (and most people are, deep-down), ask God for help. Then take any ideas that are useful to you - borrow them, nab them, use them, adapt them - and make them into something greater...
