The Bible on Leadership is the first business book that offers leadership lessons from dozens of biblical figures, illuminating their ability to face and overcome extraordinary challenges. The book identifies ten core traits—among them honesty and integrity, purpose, courage and humility—and shows how they are found in many of our own business executives. Business leaders profiled include Steve Jobs, Gordon Bethune, Sam Walton, Lou Gerstner, Andy Grove, and Mary Kay Ash, who at their best demonstrate some of the same strengths and values as their biblical predecessors.
