    It could be argued that a Bible is a Bible is a Bible; however, just as there are different cars designed for the needs and wants of different individuals, there are different Bibles published to meet the needs and wants of different individuals who want to study the Bible in a particular version or from a particular perspective.

The Maxwell Leadership Bible written by Dr. John C. Maxwell, “an internationally recognized leadership expert, speaker, and author who has sold over 12 million books, and whose organization has trained more than 2 million leaders worldwide,” is THE Bible for the individual who either is in a leadership position or plan on being in a leadership position one day and wants God’s perspective on how to live and do their work in such a way as to glorify God. Dr. Maxwell’s Bible is for the individual who wants to know God’s word and will concerning leadership and leadership principles and how by “rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15) they can apply the word and biblical principles in their personal and business lives. First and foremost The Leadership Bible is just that…it IS a Bible…the true and living Word of God; however, found in the pages of this Bible are practical principles and notes that are appropriate for an individual who is either in a leadership position or aspires to be a godly leader in a position of responsibility in their field of work one day. Dr. Maxwell offers a comprehensive variety of “21 laws" as he refers to them in his Bible, a couple of examples being, “Rehoboam And The Law Of Connection - Leaders Touch A Heart Before They Ask For A Hand,” (I Kings 12: 1-24), or “Deborah And The Law Of Respect -People Naturally Follow Leaders Stronger Than Themselves.” (Judges 4:1-16). So, just as a Bible alone, The Maxwell Leadership Bible is an excellent Bible; however, with the vast amount of practical and solid Biblically based notes concerning leadership principles that are contained within its pages, this Bible is a must have for all men and women who desire to be godly leaders in their field of work. I give this Bible 5*****!

    This was actually a gift I got my husband for a birthday one year, and he LOVED it so much I started reading it for the commentary and man, Can I just tell you, if this was in ESV version it would be hands down, one of the best bible's to own. The leadership commentary is fantastic and so helpful... as a leader, which we all are!

This book, of course, is far For over 7 years now, I always make it a point to read a few paragraphs from this book every night :D Of course, there are nights that I forget to remember to read from this book, but I realize that I've been so used to this practice that I end up doing again the reading the next evening before I sleep. It's one of the moments when you can allow yourself to reflect on what happened in nearly the past 24 hours, and you can use this book to serve as one of your guides. This book, of course, is far from easy to read, as it's intimidating, and is made up of several smaller books inside its pages. And its main sources, that predate written human history, are up to now being debated, hotly contested upon by those involved in religion, or in anything that is organized as a set-up to perpetuate one individual's or a group's political position, or ranking in societies where these religions have originated from. It's eternally inspiring, if you allow yourself to be inspired, and get yourself from being skeptic, or to say the least, scholarly with your tastes on books to read. Maxwell has come up with his own set of annotations to better describe and explain the context of the books of the Bible, always focusing on the essence of leadership. I am a practising Catholic myself, and I've found out some books in this Bible are missing, when I compared it with the authorized version of the Catholic Church (particularly the book of Sirach). Of course, there are a lot of books that have been left out or were not included in the processes called "Synod" by the Catholic Church where top ranking officials and Bible authorities have agreed and studied what have to be included in the Bible for many centuries now. And as this practice continues, apparently, with some other groups, more debate and discussion ensue. I'm glad as well that the Bible when it has evolved from its un-compiled form mainly from Greek sources into its Latin version was pioneered by a saint, with the name (same as mine!), Jerome. This so called "Latin Vulgate" which was written in the language that used to be the lingua franca of the Western World, was then the main source of the English bible, and the other versions, plus other editions of the Bible that we have now.

    That's one good book. 1649 pages of power. The leadership principles peppered throughout make it fun and challenging to read NKJV, shining a new light on fundamental principles and encouraging deep personal reflection.

    There are many Bibles I have bought or received as gifts from friends. There are a few more I would buy if the opportunity presented itself. This would not be one of them. If I received this Bible as a gift, I would not return it, but I would not be willing to pay more than a few dollars for it.

Before discussing my more serious complaints and re There are many Bibles I have bought or received as gifts from friends. There are a few more I would buy if the opportunity presented itself. This would not be one of them. If I received this Bible as a gift, I would not return it, but I would not be willing to pay more than a few dollars for it. Instead of being a situation where biblical understanding benefits a management studies approach, this book is a sterling example in terrible eisegesis. Before discussing my more serious complaints and reservations about this book, let me at least describe its virtues first. The text is the New King James Version, with only textual footnotes, with all of the virtues and flaws of an ordinary New King James Bible to start from. For some people, that will be enough either for praise or censure. I happen to like the New King James Bible, so that spoke highly for it, though I certainly would have been content with an MKJV (a much less popular version) or a Geneva Bible as well. Each book (or, in the case of 1, 2, and 3, John, the three books together) of the Bible is given a leadership introduction and interspersed with lessons taken from Maxwell’s famously numbered lessons in leadership. It should be noted for readers that this book follows the 21 laws of leadership, and not the 17 laws of teamwork [1]. Quite frankly, I was extremely disappointed by this book. I think highly of Maxwell’s work in general, and this book just didn’t meet the standard I expected of either biblical exegesis or leadership advice that I look for from the Bible. There are a lot of problems which I had with this book, but rather than be exhaustive and rant, I would rather be a bit more fair and illustrate the larger issues from which many smaller ones come. For one, there seems to be a high level of arbitrariness about the book. Each book of the Bible has “leaders” and “people of influence” shown. Sometimes (as in Galatians), the same people are on both lists. In numerous other cases (basically every book of the Bible) there is no rhyme or reason why “leaders” and “people of influence” are in different categories. People of influence are leaders, and leaders lead by influencing others, regardless of whether they possess a title or not. Power is influence. The fact that this very straightforward and simple truth is muddled suggests some real serious difficulties with properly presenting biblical leadership. The problems only get worse from there. The book as a whole seems to have a harsh bias when it comes to its examples. Examples pile on the negatives for bad examples of leaderships, show only the positive in positive examples, and fail to present any kind of balance or nuance. I frequently found the polarization of its examples, and the lack of attention to obvious questions of leadership that happen to be obscure in certain religious circles (like the need for leaders to avoid exploitation of the people), or the avoidance of obscure leaders in particular aside from the Pauline epistles to be a major failure. But it was far from the only major failure of the book. Even more troubling than the cherry picking of examples was the jargon-riddled and highly objectionable language contained in the lessons in the book. To give one example of many, this book frequently looks for leaders to exhibit “brokenness,” talking in the vague language of evangelicals rather than more concrete and practical language. The very fuzziness of its cliches (of which “brokenness” is one of the more irritating examples) belies the explicit praise of the authors for leaders like Paul who speak blunt truths, albeit with love and respect (see Philemon for a gracious example, and Galatians or 1 Corinthians for a more blunt one). The authors praise Paul for following the 101% rule, where one gives 100% of one’s attention to the 1% that is in agreement, a rule that is nowhere followed in the ferocious denunciations of Galatians or 1 Corinthians of false teachers and sexual immorality, which ought to be obvious to anyone who has even a slight familiarity with such books. The fact that the book spouts off pious-sounding post-Darby antinominan evangelical nonsense only makes the book’s occasional brushes with scriptural insight (like servant leadership) appear like flashes of light in a clouded mirror. Reading this book is akin to seeing whether one is like the optimistic kid of the story who was happy when put in a room full of manure because he said, “There’s so much crap in here there’s got to a pony somewhere.” Sadly, I found no pony. Even worse, I found some of the book’s essays particularly offensive. Witness, for example, this “nugget” from page 332 and 333 of the book, looking at some bogus “lessons” from 1 Samuel 9, seeking to contrast Samuel’s role as pastor (ministry leader) and Saul’s role as the entrepreneur (the marketplace leader). The book actively promotes the highly corrupt way that wealthy parishioners seek to convert their wealthy into religious power through supporting their local pastors. This is the way that religious novices with big bank accounts are made into deacons or members of the boards of congregations, and how churches get fancy campuses while not actually preaching anything of value because they don’t want to offend the big tithepayers. The fact that this book promotes such a corrupt and co-dependent relationship in the guise of religion is highly offensive to me personally and strikes a very personal nerve from my own experiences. In short, this book requires very careful treatment. One cannot but admire the ambitions of the authors in seeking to expound upon the very worthwhile leadership lessons of the Bible, lessons which full just about every page of scripture. On the other hand, the language of the book, both in its management jargon and in its pseudoreligious cliches, fails to meet these lofty ambitions with anything remotely approaching competence. And that is a shame. I had much higher expectations for this book, probably the reason it disappointed me so greatly. [1] https://edgeinducedcohesion.wordpress...

    Bumped up to 3.75 stars because it's a Bible. The author provides good insight connecting biblical leaders and their circumstance/situation to leadership lessons relevant to contemporary living. This occurs naturally, and not because Maxwell makes them relevant. The Bible is always relevant. Bumped up to 3.75 stars because it's a Bible.

    I received a complimentary copy. A perfect gift for the person who wants to lead and be in higher position with their faith. It is just a Bible but has more direction included in a way that presents a path outlined to connect with a leadership position. I think that anyone of older age that is interested in learning to lead with a faith based heart and belief will really enjoy this well designed book.
