With this NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Leaders you can read through the Bible in a year. 
Or at your own pace.
Now you can practice the spiritual discipline of daily Bible reading with a special focus on leadership.  Plus, you can read at your own pace. Want a reading plan that will take you through the Bible in a year? You got it–with check boxes and all. Don’t want the guilt of falling behind?  You won’t—each daily reading is not dated but numbered, allowing you the flexibility you need as you strive to engage God’s Word every day.
The NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Leaders organizes the clear, accessible New International Version Bible into 365 daily readings. Each day’s reading includes a portion of Scripture from the Old Testament, the New Testament, and a Psalm or a Proverb. And to help you develop your leadership skills with a biblical focus, each daily reading includes a leadership insight from both past and present outstanding leaders. Featured leaders include Bill Hybels , Wayne Cordeiro, Erwin McManus, Charles Stanley, Max Lucado, Ann Voskamp, Chuck Swindoll, and many more.

My take on this Bible:
If you're looking for a daily Bible that is broken down into 365 readings this might be what you are looking for. The daily reading includes scripture from the Old Testament, The New Testament as well as a scripture from Psalms or Proverbs. What I like about this Bible is that the daily readings are just numbered not geared toward specific days. I would consider this a "specialty Bible" because it is geared toward Leaders, but honestly I think it falls flat in this area. Sure there are daily reflections provided by some of today's most influential Christian Leaders, such as Charles Stanley, Max Lucado, and Chuck Swindoll to name a few, but those reflections while nice reading they weren't overly impressive or even motivational. I did like that there is an index included in the back that allowed me to find some of my favorite leaders. Another positive of this Bible is that it seems to be constructed well, I have the paperback version and the binding seems tight. The print is a nice size as well. Overall, this is an ok Bible for someone looking for a way to read thru the Bible in a year, but if you are looking for a Bible for leadership ideas this is one that I would probably skip over.  

A complimentary copy of this Bible was provided for review.
