About the Author
Dr. Clinton has studied each of the books of the Bible from a leadership perspective. His book, The Bible and Leadership Values, contains that initial research on the Bible. From this study he has selected the top 25 books that contribute much to leadership thought. For each book of his Biblical Leadership Commentary Series, Dr. Clinton comments on the text from a leadership standpoint. He defines leadership concepts, which shed light on the leadership implications in the text. Further, Dr. Clinton writes short leadership articles, which further suggest the importance of Biblical insights for leadership. Fourteen leadership commentaries have been completed to date: Jonah, Nehemiah, Haggai, Obadiah, Daniel, John, 1,2 Corinthians, Philippians, Titus, 1,2 Timothy, 1, 2 Timothy.

Leadership is defined well and connected to great biblical examples. Author writes about how one develops inner maturity (excellent). But to me as a reader, this book jumbles up too many thoughts together and it was liken to a seven course meal presented in a blender rather than spread out.
At first, I was reluctant to read this book, having been exposed to a myriad of leadership studies at West Point and in the Army; however, when I began to read this book, I was struck by the 'long view' that Dr. Clinton takes on leader development.
This book is very effective at taking case studies in historical, biblical, and contemporary leadership, and extrapolating models that serve both emerging leaders and mentors very well.
As a Christian, a member of the Navigators Military Mission, and an active duty officer, this book is an invaluable resource.
For the current leader it places challenges and exercises to asses how God has been developing you all along.
For the beginning leader it can help to identify what areas need addressing for future leadership and to give a template for your development.
