The Good Book on Leadership: Case Studies from the Bible

Front Cover
B&H Publishing Group, 2005 - Business & Economics - 266 pages
The Bible is replete with leaders—the good, the bad, and the ugly—and they all have a lesson to teach. However, a closer examination of these personalities reveals much about the character of leadership.

The Good Book on Leadership examines these leaders on a case-by-case basis to unveil the biblical models for leadership. These models apply not just to pastors but also to business, sports, overnment, and even the military. God’s Word provides us with what we need to know—for any situation—to provide godly leadership and guidance.

Just okay, not much depth

User Review  - Brad Cowie - Christianbook.com

It's okay but not much depth and very little actual textual interaction. It's sort of "pop leadership with prooftexts" (maybe "prooftexts" is unfair, but hopefully you get the idea). I had hoped for a bit more robust interaction with Biblical texts on leadership. So, it's okay, but not great. Read full review
