NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Leaders

The NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Leaders (Zondervan)

The NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Leaders (Zondervan) is just the thing for those wanting a daily Scripture reading plan made easy and with an added plus: an inspirational thought on leadership from a key leader.

The 365 daily reading sections taken from the NIV are conducive for reading the entire Bible in one year, or to go at a faster or slower pace. The sections are conveniently numbered (1-365) rather than dated so that the reader can stretch out or speed up the reading pace of those 365 readings as they so choose. You can read the entire Bible in a year, less than a year or over several years—as suits your lifestyle.

Similar to other daily reading Bibles, each of the 365 sections provides selections from the Old Testament and the New Testament as well as portions from the Psalms and Proverbs. But what sets the NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Leaders apart are the insightful leadership blurbs shared from renowned influencers such as: Bill Hybels, Blaise Pascal, Ann Voskamp, Chuck Swindoll, J. Oswald Sanders, David Platt, Teddy Roosevelt, Matthew Henry, Madam Guyon… (Ah, the list alone is inspiring.)

The NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Leaders comes in an attractive glossy-and-matt-mix soft cover. An index at the back provides short descriptions of what can be found under each of the 365 reading sections. An alphabetically ordered index providing a brief bio on each author included in the leadership sections is also placed towards the end of the book. This section also gives the page numbers where each leader’s portion can be found making it easy to just look up the sections of a preferred author.

The NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Leaders makes a great Bible for leaders or potential leaders. Think: stocking stuffer.
