The NIV Maxwell Leadership Bible, a review

I enjoyed studying what makes a good leader from my years of working in Organization Development to the time I was on staff for a church.  John Maxwell's books and materials were well respected by both secular and church leadership.

I was very interested in seeing what information was in this Bible.  While not a Study Bible as one thinks, it will be a welcome addition to anyone wanting to learn more about all aspects of being a good leader from a Biblical standpoint.

Where a normal Study Bible would concentrate on theology, this Bible provides John Maxwell's teaching about leadership regarding individual Scripture verses as well as the various people we read about in the Word.

Included are The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader, Over 100 biographical profiles, Introductions to the books of the Bible, hundreds of short articles and read-as-you-go notes on mentoring and influence, and a topical index to Scripture and articles.

I was sent the Burgundy Bonded Leather Bible, which is one of the best actual Bibles to read I have enjoyed in a Study Bible.  It is a good size Bible, with comfort print font that is large enough for anyone who does not need a large print Bible, and the NIV version makes it very easy to read.  (This Bible is also available in the NKJV.)

I recommend The Maxwell Leadership Bible to anyone who desires to learn more about becoming an excellent leader from a Biblical perspective, as well as great secular teaching. I probably would not use it as my primary Bible as I need more theological information, however, it would make an excellent resource in addition to such a Bible.

The Maxwell Leadership Bible was provided by the publisher for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.

Brenda thank you for this review. I have heard of John Maxwell and read some of his excerpts but never studied his Leadership Bible. Hope you are having a great day.
