    So the first thing to notice is that this is NOT a study bible. You will not find footnotes explaining the text. As a leadership bible, what you will find are mini-articles on leadership, referred to as the 21 laws of leadership & the 21 qualities of leadership as well as leadership profiles on different leaders throughout the Bible. There are book introductions that introduce each book of the Bible from the perspective of leadership, God's leadership as well as human leadership. There is also a reference table at the beginning of each book that highlights the leadership shown in that book as well as who it is shown by. At the back of the Bible, there is a glossary to show exactly where you can find the 21 laws of leadership, the 21 qualities of leadership, and the profiles in leadership.

    I think those in a place of leadership or coming into a place of leadership will greatly benefit from the extras in this Bible, I will say I wish there were cross-references included for every verse as it would help in relating the different passages on leadership a lot easier. It is a bit heavy, my husband's exact words when I handed it to him. But the font makes the weight worth it.

    {FYI: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my HONEST opinion.}

    It is always interesting when multiple versions of a Bible are released. As I do not have the previous versions, I cannot speak as to what the differences might be, thus my review will be of the content of this version alone. That being said, there are quite a few extra helps included in this version. Biographical profiles of leadership, book introductions, and notes on mentoring and influence are all included within the NIV text found in this Bible.

    John Maxwell is a widely know author and speaker on the topic of leadership. Throughout this Bible, the writing of Maxwell are interwoven with the text, highlighting examples and principles of leadership through utilization of the Biblical text. Additionally, there are summaries of the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and the 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader and the applicable Scripture pertaining to these laws and qualities. Lastly there are several articles on being a leader included in the end-materials of this bible.

    As one can see, there are many features included in this Bible. However, for all of its additional material, there are some basic items missing. There are no maps contained within the Bible, nor is there any kind of concordance or dictionary. Pretty basic stuff in even the most inexpensive Bibles, and these items could have been added without much effort. There are a few textual footnotes included with the Bible text, but no real cross-referencing. Lastly, there are no study notes of any type of Biblical information beyond those highlighting the leadership materials included.

    All in all, if you are looking for a specialized Bible for a leader in your life, this would be a good option. If you are looking for a good, all-purpose study Bible, this is not the one you want. It is pretty one-dimensional in it intent and purpose, becoming a Biblically sound leader. Knowing that is the purpose, I believe it hits that mark very well. I also believe this is a highly specialized Bible with that singular purpose in mind and is not applicable for much study beyond that focus.

    I received a copy of this Bible for free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for a review. The review did not have to be positive. All thoughts are my own.
