New readers as well as longtime fans of Maxwell and the original book won't want to miss out on this one.
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 lawAnother look: Bible study questions based on the highlighted passagesHighlighting the lesson: Questions that focus on the central teaching pointsLasting implications: Questions to help draw out personal conclusionsDaily 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.
