BOOK EXCERPT:

WHAT’S CHALLENGING YOUR LEADERSHIP? THE BIBLE HAS AN ANSWER! If you’re trying to influence even one person, you are a leader. And that means you’re facing challenges. The more you lead, the greater the number of challenges you face. How do you solve them? Dr. John C. Maxwell has been exploring these issues and helping leaders with them for decades. Where did Maxwell, recently named the #1 leadership and management expert in the world by Inc. magazine, gain such insight into leadership? From the Bible! John asserts that the Bible is the greatest leadership book that has ever been written. In this study, John addresses twenty-one of the most common issues leaders face. Starting with internal issues such as identity, purpose, pride, and self-leadership, and moving on to others such as criticism, change, diversity, teamwork and recruiting, John shows how leaders in the Bible addressed these issues with boldness and clarity, or, conversely, how they failed to lead. Either way, the lessons are clear. You can improve your leadership for not only your own sake, but also for that of your team and those you serve. In this twenty-one lesson study, John guides you through Scriptures that reveal the challenges leaders face and the solutions available to them. Each lesson includes: THE ISSUE DEFINED: a brief description and introduction to the Issue CASE STUDIES: THREE BIBLICAL STUDIES: including leaders such as Joseph, Moses, Ruth, David, Nehemiah, Peter, Titus, and Jesus—that reveal and illustrate the Issue STUDY QUESTIONS: reflection and application questions to help you dig into the stories of the men and women in Scripture and learn from them LEADERSHIP INSIGHT AND REFLECTION: questions to help you assess and improve your own leadership skills TAKING ACTION: practical takeaways and direction to help you incorporate each lesson into your daily life GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: questions to help you learn and process the Bible study material with other like-minded people who want to grow in leadership Start with the issues where you most need help, complete the entire study as a course in problem solving, or meet with your team, using it as their next training in leadership development. 21 Leadership Issues in the Bible can help you become a better leader in any area of your life as you seek to influence others for Christ.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Where do most people today turn for leadership? Some examine the world of politics. Some look for models in the entertainment industry. Many look to the world of business—to the successful stories of CEOs, management consultants, and theoreticians with PhDs. However, the truth is that the best source of leadership teaching today comes not from any of these sources but from the one true source: the Word of God. The Bible is the greatest source on leadership that has ever been written. John Maxwell has spent decades researching and equipping others for leadership, and his primary source of leadership principles has always been the Word of God. In this study, he draws on the stories of the men and women in Scripture to show how they demonstrated what he calls "the 21 irrefutable laws of leadership." He also shows how some of the characters in the Bible failed to portray these leadership principles, and how that affected them and, in some cases, entire populations of people groups. Sessions include in-depth studies on the principles of leadership followed by men and women such as Moses, Joshua, Deborah, Ruth, David, Elijah, Josiah, Esther, Nehemiah, Peter, Barnabas, and especially Jesus. Each session contains the following sections: The Law: An overview of the law and how it operates (includes quotes from the book and discussion questions based on the principles covered) Biblical example: An overview of the primary character in the Bible who demonstrated that law or wrote about that law Another look: Bible study questions based on the highlighted passages Highlighting the lesson: Questions that focus on the central teaching points Lasting implications: Questions to help draw out personal conclusions Daily assignments: Five sets of questions that guide readers on how to put the laws into effect during their week This study has been designed to enhance readers' experience of working through John Maxwell's leadership materials and is intended both for individual use and for small groups.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"A masterpiece of contemporary Bible translation and commentary."—Los Angeles Times Book Review, Best Books of 1999 Acclaimed for its masterful new translation and insightful commentary, The David Story is a fresh, vivid rendition of one of the great works in Western literature. Robert Alter's brilliant translation gives us David, the beautiful, musical hero who slays Goliath and, through his struggles with Saul, advances to the kingship of Israel. But this David is also fully human: an ambitious, calculating man who navigates his life's course with a flawed moral vision. The consequences for him, his family, and his nation are tragic and bloody. Historical personage and full-blooded imagining, David is the creation of a literary artist comparable to the Shakespeare of the history plays.

Mark Noll has written a major indictment of American evangelicalism. Reading this book, one wonders if the evangelical movement has pandered so much to American culture and tried to be so popular only to lose not only it's mind but it's soul as well. For evangelical pastors and parishoners alike, this is a must read! --Robert Wuthnow.
