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. In the midst of our increasingly divided age, examining great moral leaders can help us understand the central qualities of moral leadership and discover lessons for our own lives and times.

This book explores the lives of fourteen great moral leaders of recent centuries, including Ida B. Wells-Barnett, William Wilberforce, Harriet Tubman, Mohandas Gandhi, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Malala Yousafzai, and Mother Teresa. Incorporating skillful storytelling, short biographies, and analyses, the book presents these exemplary moral leaders as human beings who are flawed in some ways, gifted in others, but unforgettable all the same.
