The Bible is full of examples when it comes to leadership. As a Christian it would only make sense that there be a Bible devoted to the issue. After all, we are all leaders of some kind. Whether at work, home, or in our churches there are circumstances in which we are a leader. John Maxwell has been a pastor of a large church, and he is also one of the most sought after speakers and authors on the topic of leadership. His notes about leadership in this volume are second to none.
The Bible itself is the New King James translation of scripture. The translation itself is great, and the only qualm I have is that the deuterocanonical books are not included (I’m Catholic…what can I say). The notes in this Bible are amazing. As previously stated, Maxwell has notes and articles on leadership throughout this volume. He lists the 21 laws of leadership, 21 qualities of a leader, a detailed index that point to leadership issues, as well as over 100 biographical profiles. If you are a leader of any kind, and we all are, this is a great addition to your library…if only for the notes and articles alone.
