The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived by Steven K. Scott
I have been sooooo remiss! I was supposed to blog about this book in March! Anyway, better late than never! I'm giving away a copy, so leave a comment if you want to be included in the drawing.
The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived: Secrets for Unparalleled Success and Unshakable Happiness from the Life of Jesus is told from the point of view of the author, Steven K. Scott, who once felt like a complete failure but is now a very rich, very successful businessman. It has some great points about how Jesus impacts our personal and professional lives. Here is a summary:
Steven K. Scott’s life changed forever one night in 1964, when he was first introduced to the man he came to know as “the homeless carpenter.” Since that fateful night, Scott has drawn on the teachings and the powerful lessons he learned from the way that Jesus lived his life to help create two dozen businesses that have generated billions of dollars in revenue. His success, he claims, is due in large measure to the eternal lessons he learned from the “homeless carpenter”—the greatest mentor in his life. Among the principles he learned:
The importance of identifying—and strengthening—the “whys” that drive our sense of purpose;
Discovering and mastering the seven keys that made Jesus the greatest communicator of all time;
Recognizing that the manner and methods we use to reach out to others are as important as our message.
Filled with stories about how Scott practiced and used the teachings and insights of Jesus in his own career and personal life and in raising and supporting his family, The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived will open a new door into what it means to live a life of extraordinary accomplishment and purpose in everything that you do.
