I define Hebraic leadership as using a Hebraic worldview to see, plan, and lead people. As the Bible is Hebraic, written by Hebrews, unto Hebrews or to call people to follow the God of the Hebrews, a Hebraic viewpoint in many if not all ways, is a Biblical viewpoint. The worldview puts us in a universe whose beginning and end (telos), is unto God, values the special place that God put humans and humanity in the universe, orients oneself in relation to a meaningful history, sees the freedom of humanity and its complex diversity and plurality, and recognizes the Word that God has spoken to us and the world. To me the Hebraic worldview operates out of a deep respect for freedom (that God has given us valuable freedom, and that freedom is worth defending), truth (there is such as thing as truth, and God has a real will for our lives and says meaningful things about himself, us, and the world), and love (that the personal God has a desire of good will and to be one with us, and also desires us to love one another).
