What others are saying…

Dr. Harris has been my mentor for over 20 years. Born out of real life and ministry experiences, his leadership is not just abstract theories or rote strategies, but practical, common sense approaches to real life situations. God has gifted him with uncommon leadership abilities. The Lord has also placed in him a desire to pass what he has learned to others. I am excited to now see the things I have been privileged to learn, test, and experience put in print.          Tim CampbellExecutive Director, Arkansas Free Will Baptists. (200 churches)


This is the most helpful book on leadership that I’ve ever read. Common Sense Leadership is practical, biblical, and written for Christian leaders who are engaged in the daily realities leading others. These pages are fresh with hands-on-illustrations taken from the streets where we all live. This book belongs on every pastor’s desk. Roy has been a leader since age 17, and it shows in every paragraph.         Jack Williams: Director of Communications, Welch College, Nashville, TN.


Will Rogers once said, the Common thing about Common Sense is that it isn’t that common and Roy nails it in Common Sense Leadership.  Leaders, lead and often need a nudge, tip, or encouragement to step it up and Roy provided that in this book.  His experience, wisdom and perspective will impact your life and ministry.  Patrick McLaughlin: President/Founder – The Timothy Group- Grand Rapids, MI.


Whenever I pick up a book about business or management, I thumb through it looking for stories. A leadership book without anecdotes contains nothing but theories and concepts. Common Sense Leadership presents excellent theories and principles, but they’re interwoven with the life and experiences of an uncommon leader—Roy Harris. You’ll find this book easy to read, but hard to forget.          Rob Morgan: Pastor of The Donelson Fellowship, Nashville, Tennessee and best-selling and Gold-Medallion winning writer with over 25 books in print and over 3.5 million in print circulation.
