NIV Leadership Bible - Book Review

From the publisher:
This Bible includes:
  • The complete text of the best-selling modern-English translation, the New International Version (NIV) Bible.
  • Book Introductions that underscore key leadership concepts in every book of the Bible.
  • Home Pages and Daily Studies offer 52 weeks of studies on topics important to every leader.
  • Study Windows reinforce the understanding of Biblical leadership throughout the text.
  • Character Profiles show how the personal attributes and decisions of biblical characters affected their relationships with others.
  • Topical Index highlights Bible passages most relevant to specific concerns.
  • Bibliography 
This is a pretty cool Bible.  I currently use the Maxwell Leadership Bible, and this compares nicely.  Rather than selections from Maxwell's books, though, there are multiple topics and character profiles (74 in total).  The topics include selections from Personal Development, Relationships, and Skills, with each category having multiple sub-topics.  There are also weekly devotions for all 52 weeks of the year, based around a leadership principle.  Each week includes a 5-day breakdown: Day 1 - Issue Introduction; Day 2 - Who God Is; Day 3 - Who I Am; Day 4 - How It Works; and Day 5 - What I Do.  There are also terrific introductions to each book of the Bible, which include background on the book, a leadership summary, and leadership principle(s) in the book.

I really like this Bible and recommend it to anyone who might be looking to examine leadership from a Biblical perspective.

I received a review copy of this book from Zondervan's Booksneeze review program in exchange for an honest review.
