Book 6 of Year 2017 – “​Successful Leaders of the Bible” by Katara Washington Patton

One of the FAQs I receive is “​how do you know how long it will take to finish a particular book?”

As I read most of my books on my kindle/ kindle app for iPhone, the app learns my reading speed and calculates how long it will take for me to finish a particular book.

I have always been fascinated with leadership stories in the bible as they are very graphic and relatable.

Official Title – Successful Leaders of the Bible

Genre – Non-Fiction

Book Length – ​160 pages

Reading Time – ​1.5 hours

Style – ​Katara’s book is a compendium of stories of leaders in the bible and the lessons we can glean.

The book outlines stories of Joseph, Moses, Hulday (I had never heard of her until I read this book), Saul, David, Tabitha, Phoebe, Peter, Paul and Jesus.

Favourite Quote – “A leader stands by his or her convictions to the end. And she shows up during the fight!

Recommendation – This book on leadership does not overwhelm the reader with facts after fact. I like the approach Katara adopts in educating readers and providing references to be read or studied later.
