Editor's Thoughts:

I was not sure about this Bible, because I am not a fan of the NIV version, but I will rate this Bible 4 out of 5 stars. I really enjoyed the Leadership insights. I wanted to share a couple of my favorite leadership 'Reflection" excerpts they gave:

Day 221: "Nehemiah raised the bar for me when it comes to celebration. He reminded me that all work and no play makes for dull people. . .All service and no celebration is a formula for wearing people down and draining their joy. We leaders must not let that happen. We need to be intentional in planning the victory parties as we are at setting and achieving the organizational goals." - Bill Hybels

Day 260: "The confident leader embodies good energy, a sense of destiny, and a restless independence of mind. Arrogance is not confidence; confidence is not arrogance. . ." - Leonard I. Sweet

If you are looking for a good leadership Bible coupled with a great reading plan then this Bible would be a great choice. Just be sure to have a notebook as well because it is rather small which makes hardly any room for taking notes in the margins (something I like to do).
