The Christian Celebrity & Our Bloated Selfhood

In a culture where everyone feels entitled to their 15MB of fame, is it any wonder that Christian leaders define success by their celebrity influence?

This is why defining influence as leadership is dangerous in a culture where influence is perceived as celebrity capital.
