Welcome to the new Journal of Biblical Perspectives in Leadership (JBPL). This first issue is the culmination of a dream first envisioned by Dr. Kathaleen Reid-Martinez when she was the Dean of the School of Leadership Studies (a predecessor of the current School of Business & Leadership). Dr. Reid-Martinez wanted to see a high-quality journal in which biblical scholars could present their research and findings about what Scripture has to say about leadership. Dr. Corné Bekker is an ideal editor for this journal, and it is an honor to have him at the helm.
The JBPL is intentionally free of charge so that its articles are available to a wide audience via the Internet. This aligns with the School of Business & Leadership's desire to be a resource on the Internet-a place where people can find information and knowledge about leadership and organizational studies. I encourage all who read this to pass along the URL so that others may access this great resource.
