Lorna Dueck and The Honourable Preston Manning chat about his book "Faith, Leadership and Public Life" as well as what reconciliation looks like according to Christian theology.
The connection between faith, leadership and public life is a complex one, as Preston Manning knows all too well from his years as a scout and trailblazer on Canada's political frontiers. Now, in his new book Faith, Leadership and Public Life: Leadership Lessons from Moses to Jesus, he fearlessly tackles this subject by drawing upon his own years in Canada's Parliament and political arena and upon relevant lessons to be learned from the public lives of the founding giants of Judaism and the Christian faith. He challenges people of faith today to learn from their examples about how to conduct ourselves responsibly at the faith-political interface while bringing what Jesus called "salt and light" to bear on the political issues and structures of our times. If you are a person of faith currently active in politics or leadership, or contemplating involvement in either, this book will help you in meeting those challenges!
