Remember, this is not a book summary or book report. It is like having an engaging conversation with the author. ASSIGNMENT: Bible Characters Evaluation on 4 Bible characters (David, Esther, Joseph, and Deborah) and discuss their use of Strategic Planning to reach desired outcomes. Did they follow any of the steps presented in Allison and Kaye’s book? Did they strategically plan, or just haphazardly/randomly act? Select three or four points to develop the paper. The assignment should be 16 pages in length (4 pages for each bible character) reaction/reflection paper. I do not have the book, but it may be at the library or available as an ebook. Also, use four other sources to support the position of the paper. The paper must be in APA 6th edition format: Headers, runners, please do not use I, me, or my or other related terms. Proper reference citations are needed. Direct quotes must have the proper citation with page number(s), indirect quotes or paraphased information need proper citations, reference the APA guide for further instruction. Also, please do not use slang or improper English. Read through all instructions carefully. A good resource for the format is Owl Purdue https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/
