About the Book

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 workbook, he explores 21 of the most illuminating issues faced by the men and women in Scripture. He also shows how some of the characters in the Bible failed to confront these issues in a godly way, and how that affected them and, in some cases, entire populations of people groups.

Sessions include in-depth studies on the leadership issues faced by men and women such as Joseph, Moses, Deborah, Gideon, Samson, Ruth, David, Esther, Nehemiah, Peter, Paul, and especially Jesus.

Each session contains the following sections:

  • Definition of the Issue: A brief description of the issue that confronted leaders in the Bible
  • Case Studies: three biblical studies on how leaders such as Moses, Joshua, David, Elijah, Esther, Mary, Paul, and Jesus faced the issued
  • Study Questions: reflection and application questions to help you understand how the leaders solved the issue
  • Leadership Insights and Taking Action: questions to help you improve your leadership skills and incorporate the studies into your life
  • Group Discussion Questions: questions to help you process the Bible study material with other like-minded people who want to grow in leadership

This workbook has been designed to enhance readers' experiences of working through John Maxwell's leadership materials and is intended both for individual use and for small groups.
