Are you missing a hidden responsibility in your leadership?
As with driving a car, if you don’t pay attention to your blind spots in leadership, you’ll likely have some accidents. Similarly, if you don’t address fundraising with your staff you will bypass their personal felt needs—and you’ll have some accidents.
But we’re not without guidance! The Bible has plenty to say about fundraising and leadership, and this book explores six biblical leaders who faced the same fundraising-leadership issues confronting you today. So fasten your seatbelt!

God has used Scott Morton to motivate, train, coach and influence countless faith-based, non-profit organizations through his writing, training and personal ministry. I am one of those leaders. There is no one better qualified to speak to leadership funding than Scott.

Blindspots has the smell of the fire of battle, not just the musings in the closet of academia.
Jerry E. White, PhD., International President Emeritus, The Navigators, Author of Honesty, Morality and Conscience and To Be a Friend
