    schema:description "We can't help but be inspired by great leaders--those who led lives of moral purpose and in some way left the world a different and better place. Great moral leaders inspire, challenge, and unite us. In the midst of our increasingly divided age, examining remarkable leaders can help us understand the central qualities of moral leadership and discover lessons for our own lives and times. Moral Leadership for a Divided Age explores the lives of fourteen great moral leaders of recent centuries. Short biographies of each leader combine with a tour of their historical context, unique faith, and lasting legacy to paint a vivid picture of moral leadership in action. Through skillful storytelling and honest appraisals of their legacies, we encounter exemplary human beings who are flawed in some ways, gifted in others, but unforgettable all the same. --!c From publisher's description."@en ;
