Missing Voices: Learning to Lead beyond Our Horizons is a unique book: not only does it tackle problems associated with a solitary focus on western-dominated leadership models; along with this, it proposes, as a way forward, a leadership approach that is both globally and theologically attuned.

Importantly, this book features voices on leadership that have too-often been ignored, integrating their insights with those provided by recognized voices.

Featuring a distillation of Dr. Johnson’s research on leadership, presented alongside contributions from and interviews with global leaders, this book offers enduring principles which can be applied in a diversity of contexts and cultures.

Both seasoned and emerging leaders will find this book to be a critical resource for sound leadership in the twenty-first century.

Combining broad reading of contemporary writing on leadership with keen biblical insight and diverse voices from numerous cultures and regions, John Johnson provides a fresh, readable and profound perspective for leaders who want to navigate the increasing complexity of our twenty-first century, globalized world.

Thomas Friedman has written that the world is flat and Harvard Professor John Kotter tells us that organizations cannot meet the fast-moving demands of our society. … Dr. Johnson has captured this well in this signature work. … This is a study that is long overdue and brings clarity to how to lead in our “flat” world. A must-read for all Christian leaders.

Missing Voices: Learning to Lead beyond Our Horizons should be required for any pastor, teacher, or lay leader who aspires to understand, respond to, and work alongside others in our multi-cultural worldwide Christian family.

When Dr. Johnson shared with me his plan to write a book on leadership I was a bit apprehensive and said to myself: “No! Not another western book on leadership!” Now as I read the full manuscript I feel grateful to God and admiration of Dr. Johnson’s work.

For over 36 years, I have been both a pastor and professor. Recently I shifted from being a pastor and professor to being a writer and a professor. Having completed the first two books, Under an Open Heaven and Missing Voices, I am now excited about my third, Rooted Leadership.

My wife, Heather, and I live on the west side of Portland with our daughter Kate and son Nate and “adopted daughter” Ola.

We occasionally head for the north coast of Oregon where we have a beach house and I escape to write.

Swimming, biking, teaching abroad, and reading fill up much of the other space.
