Points Out Some Interesting Facts,
This review is from: The Leadership Lessons of Jesus: A Timeless Model for Today's Leaders (Hardcover)
The authors point out some intersting facts in the Bible. In answer to one of the rewiewers who gave this book a one for "abusing" Jesus' teachings, there is nothing in the Bible that says it is abusing anything to pull out truisms and helpisms from Scripture to help yourself in life for a purpose other than getting saved. And although the authors' focus may have only been to help a person becoming a good leader or better, regardless, their use of biblical principles still may encourage pagans (non-christians) to see that the Bible is not valueless or teaches only on certain subjects (salvation, sin, and hell, etc.) and that if it is valuable in that way, then it is not simply a book made my "drunks" or simpleminded persons whose only goal was getting money out of people.
Some things in this book I did not like were the authors' endorsement of Martin Luther and Billy Graham, which could give people the wrong impression that these were good Christian men, and knew what they were talking about when it comes to salvation (the didn't.)
Another error they make is saying that it is necessary to be tempted to become a better leader, (because Jesus was.) That is obviously stupid logic. You don't need to be sinned against (including deliberately tempted to do something wrong) to become a better anything. Imagine a unsaved person actually believing that advice and deciding to use it to improve their son or daughter...
