In this book, Leading for Greatness – Leaving a Legacy for the Next Generation, Dr. Beeftu explains the difference between Christian management and the biblical foundations for godly leadership.  Drawing from Scripture, he reviews the lives, successes, and failures of some of the Bible’s greatest leaders: Joseph, Moses, David, and many others.  From recognizing the call to biblical leadership – to responding to that call – Dr. Beeftu takes you through the biblical process of leadership refinement, which prepares a true, biblical leader for transformational ministry in today’s culture.

This book has been designed for anyone who has a heart to lead and transform today’s culture and Dr. Beeftu has made every tool and opportunity to do so readily available.  The path of the biblical leader is a challenging one; and yet, it is an exciting journey to see what you, too, will be able to accomplish as you accept the call to biblical leadership and begin to put the plans and purposes of God into action.  Let’s leave a lasting legacy – God’s legacy – for Kingdom building through the ages!

Leadership that lacks a deep and personal relationship with the living God is without the most powerful ingredient in the business.  Leading for Greatness is a book that is born from a genuine conviction that leaders can make a difference, once they are enlightened by the truth of God. It leads leaders into the position of a servant’s attitude and challenges to evaluate the purpose of it all.
This is a handbook for every servant of the King and His Kingdom.  I know Dr. Beeftu and his family in the privacy of their home, as in public life.  This book simply reflects his deep commitment to the Word of God and body of Christ in whatever he does.  Dr. Beeftu makes leadership, according to the book, most enjoyable to read and achievable in practicing it.
Dr. Tolesa Gudina, Founder & President, Truth in Love Ministry

If there is one topic that has enough material written about it, it is leadership.  What is special about this book is that it comes as a mirror to the reader and constantly challenges him to evaluate, not the concept of leadership, but his own life and calling from different penetrating angles.  It makes you restless and anxious as you see your short falls – but also rested and believing when you realize that “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion.”  
The concepts presented are simple but profound, down to earth and practical.  To the sincere reader, the temptation to get a new idea to pass on to someone becomes irrelevant.  I am face to face with God, and what I am doing with my call in life, whether I am young and ready for battle, or whether I am older and ready to pass on the baton.
Dr. Betta Mengistu, Executive Director, Africa Area International Bible Society

I am deeply amazed at Alemu’s ability to take deep, biblical truth and make it so easily understood.  Leading for Greatness is fresh, relevant, and practical.  When applied, the principles he shares will help create true men and women of God, regardless of their field or calling.
Dutch Sheets, Executive Director, Christ for the Nations Institute
