I’ve read a aaxiom of Bill Hybels’ books now, and a few things are blindingly obvious.
The man is fired up about, I think just three things the local church, evangelism and leadership well possibly sailing as well but he’s not written a book on that yet.
Axiom is one on leadership. It reads quick as it is essentially his leadership proverbs, truths discovered over his years as senior pastor at Willow Creek and digested into bite size chunks. You can either read this book start to finish as I did I’ve read a few of Bill Hybels’ books now, and a few things are blindingly obvious.
Axiom: Powerful Leadership Proverbs
You can either read this book start to finish as I did or dip in and out and follow different leadership paths as the book connects up different leadership lessons. Both would work, but I’m a front to back kind of reader. It seems to me that Bill is the ultimate CEO style church leader, no question this guy could lead a major corporation and although this is not the only leadership style there is still so much to learn that would help me become a better leader.
Having read it once, I really need to go back through it, pencil in hand. If you’re a leader or aspire to leadership then this is a great book to read, it will sharpen your thinking no end, give you great insights into many leadership challenges and battles and set you thinking with renewed energy about how to advance in your area of leadership.
Apr 03, Mike rated it liked it Shelves: I thought Axiom was ok, but honestly, I felt like it was getting long towards the end. Some of his “leadership proverbs” I had heard before, although there were a few stand out ones for me I’ve listed a few below. I suspect that this is the kind of book you probably revisit every so often to pull out a good nugget of truth for whatever leadership stage you find yourself in.
Some highlights of newer info for me: Are We Still Having Fun?
Read All You Can There are a lot of great thoughts in this book, and I the ones I have heard, at least now I’m hearing from the source as opposed to second hand. I would recommend it for anyone in leadership. It just didn’t blow me away. Jan 11, Chris rated it really liked it Shelves: Since my first encounter with Hybels aroundI’ve been a student and fan. I’ve listened to hundreds of hours of his material and count him among those who’ve influenced my thinking. While few of the axioms listed in this book were new hyvels me, I still appreciate the fact that he collected them in one place.
I’ve borrowed many of these lines and use them on a weekly basis. For example, “umbrella of mercy” or “vision leaks” are phrases I use almost daily.

One that was new for me? Six by six exe Since my first encounter with Hybels aroundI’ve been a student and fan. Six by six execution. The idea of pushing on one project for six weeks makes a great deal of sense to me.
No, we’d just be getting started. Six weeks is enough time to gather the right team and push the ball down the field a ways. I also like this genre because it allows one to read in bites. I found that I read this book in pieces and, yes, I was one who bopped around by using the links from each chapter; I did not read it beginning to end.
Jan 08, Wayne rated it it was ok. Hybels writing style is not enjoyable. Though readable, it’s often boring. Also, Hybels really demonstrates his commitment to a model of church heavily infuenced by business models. In some respects, this book was not overly helpful for those who are not in multi-staff, massive ministries. Some chapters were better than others more helpful and could perhaps be extracted for teaching purposes, but on the whole I would not recommend this book.
Dec 30, Jeff rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is in my Top 5 of all-time favorite leadership books. It’s a great resource of leadership insights from a great leader. It’s also a great book to give your team. Nov 14, Emil Bredahl rated it it was amazing. An exellent book that I truly enjoyed.
Brief, high-level snippets of wisdom I like mottos and word pictures to communicate concepts and experiences. This is exactly what is provided here, from the author’s extensive leadership experience.
Each chapter is brief enough to read one or two daily over time, or to read through over a long weekend to clarify new vision and key actions. I left the weekend with a “Six by Six. I tried to read it a year or two ago and it could not hold my attention.
This weekend, it was exactly what I needed Brief, high-level snippets of wisdom I like mottos and word pictures to communicate concepts and experiences. This weekend, it was exactly what I needed. Four stars for the perfect timing, clarity of communication and giving me a few actionable takeaways.
This wonderful read contains 76 leadership axioms with page explanations and descriptions for each. The axioms are divided into four categories: Bill Hybels is a church leader so he writes from the perspective of leading churches and worldwide ministries however, his insights are applicable for leadership in axion areas.
Dec 22, Bryan Reeder rated it it was amazing. I do realize that there has been some controversy with Bill Hybels and his leadership recently. With that being said, this was one of the best books that I have read this year. Hybel’s Axioms are a must read especially for young leaders in the church. This book is a treasure trove of easily digestible leadership wisdom from one of the greatest leaders of the evangelical world today! Jul 26, Taylor Reavely rated it liked it Shelves: Could have been written in 20 pages.
Read for the principles–they are largely self-explanatory. Jan 10, Stephen Tan rated it it was amazing. The ONE book on leadership that every pastor or Christian in leadership should read and re-read.
Jul 13, Lee rated it it was amazing Shelves: A brilliant book on leadership. Ibll is so much great stuff in here that I think I should add this to an annual reading list to try and remind myself of it. Enjoyed each proverbs and the revelation that came. My favorite, Tunnel of Chaos!
Powerful Leadership Proverbs is a poorly named, but otherwise good book. Hybels is using the word basically to mean “recorded observations” or “short phrases that sum up a larger idea. Hybels is founding and Senior Pastor of Willowcreek Community Church, one of the largest and most influential churches in the U.
