The NIV Leadership Bible is a good devotional Bible that comes with 15 minute devotions that you can read for up to 52 weeks out of the year. I particularly liked the short insights that are on many pages that pertain to leadership styles/profiles based on certain scripture passages. These help bring some clarity to a passage or help you to see the leadership skills that can be adapted into your own life. The weekly devotionals incorporate many profiles of leaders throughout the Bible as well as instructions to help one grow deeper in the Lord. These insights, and instructions to read other verses within other sections of the Bible are great ways to learn and incorporate more scripture into your life.
Another important detail that I liked was that in the devotionals they recommend additional reading and verses to memorize. To me it seemed that through all of this, they were encouraging the readers to spend more than just 15 minutes in the word of God but rather to make it a part of their life throughout the day. Memorizing a verse often helps one to meditate on God's word. It helps to engrave it in ones mind and heart. Because of that I was impressed that this was a part of the recommendations.
If you are looking for a Bible that has more in depth information including study notes, Greek/Hebrew translations and more, then look on. But if you are looking for a Bible that incorporates devotionals with a leadership focus, with the NIV translation, then this Bible is a winner. No matter what Bible you want or are using, just make sure that you are spending time reading it and understanding what it says.
I received this Bible from Booksneeze.com for free. No one forced me to write a review. These opinions are my own.
