Successful Leaders Of The Bible – Book Review

There are so many books written on how to succeed in business that it makes one’s head swim – but what does it take to be a successful leader from God’s perspective? That is the intriguing question that Katara Washington Patton explores in Successful Leaders Of The Bible – the third book in her new series that mingles the experiences of favorite biblical characters with the challenges of contemporary life!

Successful Leaders Of The Bible infuses new life into the stories of ten of the most beloved Bible figures of all time by examining the challenges each leaders faced, relating them to the challenges we face today, and extracting lessons we can learn and principles we can apply from their situations, circumstances and lives.

For example, through the life of Joseph, we learn that:

Successful leaders grow and develop through adverse circumstances as they pursue their God-given dreams.

The biblical leaders who are profiled in this book include:

  • Joseph
  • Moses
  • Huldah
  • King Saul and the Prophet Samuel
  • King David and Nathan
  • Tabitha
  • Phoebe
  • Peter
  • Paul
  • Jesus

What I like about this book is the diversity of leaders that Katara profiles and how she brings each person to life. I appreciate her inclusion of both men and women on the list and her inclusion of Jesus – the greatest leader of all time!

Katara invites us to:

Use the Bible – and our imagination – to study the actions of those labeled as successful leaders so that we might find mentors and guides through biblical history to pattern our lives from and follow. We do not walk alone… let’s use their wisdom to propel us into success!

Successful Leaders Of The Bible is an easy-to-read book that makes learning enjoyable!

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
