Management consultant Paul Ohana and psychologist David Arnow analyze 40 Bible stories and for each give readers a simple take-away to cope more effectively with the leadership challenges they face at work and at home. In “Leadership in the Bible: A Practical Guide for Today” (published by iUniverse), the authors provide examples from the business world and contemporary society that illustrate the usefulness of ancient stories in helping to manage the tests we face as 21st century decision makers.

In a clear and concise way, “Leadership in the Bible” highlights situations encountered in everyday life and interprets them in light of what we can learn from the successes, and occasional failures, of 3 key biblical leaders—Abraham, Joseph, and Moses.

“Many books that look to the Bible for wisdom are preachy and seek to make readers more religious,” Arnow says. “Our goal is to extract essential lessons from familiar stories that will help you make more effective decisions today.”

Utilizing short case studies and the latest research from the fields of management and psychology, “Leadership in the Bible” will appeal to those with or without a background in the Bible. The authors extract lessons from the Bible about basic tasks of leadership including: successfully launching a project; preventing harmful miscommunication: learning from failure; retaining hope in the face of trial; managing, if not avoiding, crisis; and empowering those who rely on you. “Leadership in the Bible” demonstrates that with a fresh approach there’s much to learn from Bible stories that have been central to Western civilization for so many centuries.
