Clear, concise, constructive information to assist in your every endeavor.
AATP5 Stars Out Of 5Well Done Mr. Maxwell!February 11, 2019AATPQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Not only is this particular Bible well printed, bound and legible, the notes in the sidebars are attractive and well placed. This is an Excellent Source for anyone who is seeking a unique perspective on how to apply Scriptures to a leadership position of any type. I would equate it to an "Outline Commentary" in that there are bullet points to sum up what Leadership skills are being conveyed, with often times a commentary to further explain the concept. I have my regular Amplified Bible which I thoroughly enjoy, however, this Bible adds to my understanding of the Scriptures which I also much appreciate.
BeccaRae5 Stars Out Of 5Great Resource!January 24, 2019BeccaRaeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was amazed with just how much content was packed into this Bible. Unlike your standard study Bible, the extra content is exclusively geared towards leadership. There are leader profiles that share the positive and negative leadership qualities Biblical leaders had. There are articles on the laws of leadership and the qualities of a good leader. Throughout the text there are also pop-ups that expand on what the text shares about leadership. Each introduction to a book has a section on the side that states God's role in it, leaders in it, other influential people, and finally the leadership lessons you can gleam from it. The last piece is a table (with references and page numbers) that shares Leadership highlights in the book.
The copy I have is the hardcover version. The cover itself is solid black with the cover design only being displayed on the paper sleeve. I see this often but wish it were that weren't so only because the paper covers aren't often expected to last long before they get ripped and/or mangled. The Bible's full title and translation are at least etched into the binding. It has a single ribbon marker for holding your place. it's quite heavy to hold but not as thick and bulky as I've seen other study Bibles.
Personally I really loved the color scheme and font chosen for this Bible. The text itself is black, but chapter numbers, Book names, headings and articles are a mixture of a deep blue and gold. The layout, colors, and font all work together to make this look very appealing. It's clean, simple, and informative.
One thing I really like about the extra content, is that it shows the good, the bad, and the ugly. It doesn't only highlight the people who "got it all right," but also those who fell short. It shares positive aspects of a good leader along with flaws to avoid. It both encourages and warns. I also liked seeing that some of the people profiled as "leaders" are actually described as "followers" in the Biblical text. The most important thing we can do in this life is follow Jesus. If we can lead others to follow Jesus too, then we have succeeded in life.
I would highly recommend this Bible to people in (or strive to be in) leadership positions both inside and outside of the church. The principles of being a good leader can (and should be) used in any area where leadership exists. Whether is in church, the home, the workforce, politics, etc. Just as our relationship with Christ should be evident to others in general, how we interact with others and our leadership skills can be a reflection of that relationship as well. There is a lot to think about and learn from the content contained in this Bible.
