Category Description for Leaders in Action Series:

What makes a great leader? The characteristics may vary from one to the next, but we know one when we see one. This collection of biographies gives us insights into some of the heroes of our nation, Great Britain, and the modern Christian Church. I say collection, as the books are authored by five different men: David Vaughan, Stephen Mansfield, Douglas Wilson, Steven Wilkins, and George Grant.

The books vary from 200 to over 300 digest-sized pages. Each book starts with a chronology of important dates in the person's life. The first part is the most biographical, while the second section delves deeper into the virtues making this person notable. A brief third part summarizes the individual's most memorable character traits and the leadership lessons we can learn. Text is quite readable, enlightening, and inspiring. Lower-priced books are softcover, others hardcover.

Excellent description of Winston Churchill's life and times. Accessible to youth-aged students. Identifies characteristics of leadership that Churchill exemplified in his life. This is an excellent study for students in the United States who do not regularly study British/World leaders. Churchill's impact on the world was immense, yet he began as an awkward and outcast boy with disengaged parents. He learned Christian values from his nanny, which he clung to in dark times. Great book.
