Threaded throughout the text is the theme of leadership, such as the "21 Laws of leadership" and the "21 Qualities of Leadership". Simply put, these are effective strategies for anyone when interacting with others whether in the workplace, social networking, at home or anywhere in the community. Basically it is practical advice based on biblical principles. These articles are scattered throughout as side bars, paragraphs and even full sized articles.

In a way this bible can serve as a course on leadership, if you choose to focus on the articles. The leadership articles, nevertheless are not exclusive to traditional leadership as they can apply to parenting as well or even assertiveness training or sales.
This bible features the modern typefont known as the comfort print. This differs from the traditional bible font that many readers may be familiar with. The font is easy to read, and easy on the eye. Personally I prefer a larger sized more traditional font. This would be the only feature of the bible that I did not favor personally. It would have been good to include a concordance in the back, which is not included in this bible either. Other than that, I found this bible to be an ideal choice all around. As a blogger I received a copy of this book from Booklook for the purpose of writing this review.
