Publishers Description Twenty years ago, Kirbyjon H. Caldwell was a fast-track bond broker with an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business. But he turned away from a six-figure income to answer the call of his Divine purpose. With the explosive power that comes from combining prayer with action, Caldwell transformed a struggling twenty-five-member congregation into a lean, mean Kingdom-building machine. The Windsor Village United Methodist Church now has more than 11,000 members and 120 ministries for everything from job placement and financial planning to weight loss and alcohol rehabilitation. The transformation of Windsor began with a simple truth: "God wants His children to have good success " Not just the traditional concept of spiritual blessings, but redemption in every aspect of our existence: our emotions, career, finances, relationships, health, parenting skills, academic career, and more. In "The Gospel of Good Success, " Caldwell shares with you the six steps that transformed his life and Windsor Village. In his own inimitable, energetic style he will show you how to: * Find Your Calling * Stage a Comeback * Take the Faith Walk * Whup the Devil * Create Wealth God's Way * Develop God-Blessed Relationships There is a road to good success. God does not always offer instant gratification, however. Only if you are willing to make the sacrifices of the journey will you enter the place where all the pieces of your life -- your spiritual, financial, physical, professional, emotional, and relational pieces -- will be in sync, not as pieces of some convoluted puzzle but as pieces fitting harmoniously together as a whole: the place that Pastor Caldwell calls Holistic Salvation. Let this book be your road map to Holistic Salvation. God has given you the promise of an absolutely successful life. Stand up. Claim it. Attain it. Be Whole.

Holistic Salvation is part of God's plan Jan 5, 2006
I was encouraged to read the testimony of Kirbyjon Caldwell in how he stepped out to his calling and ventured into a dying church, and being used of God to revive it into something that no one could have imagined. This book is a good guide for one who is looking to understand what holistic salvation is, where good success is part of it. In a sense, salvation does not just mean that we have saved from hell, but that salvation is also being saved from the effects of the devil, health, healing, etc. In a word... it is WHOLENESS.
Caldwell gives 6 main points to holistic salvation, (1) Find Your Calling, (2) Stage a Comeback, (3) Take the Faith Walk, (4) Whup the Devil, (5) Create Wealth God's Way, and (6) Develop God-Blessed Relationships. In the book, he explains in detail each of the main points, and has numerous nuggets of insight and revelation hidden between the pages. You can take this book as someone counseling you through the areas of your life, and answering the questions that is asked, and work through issues that it talks about, you begin to walk in that wholeness of God.
The only part of this book which I found difficult was the colloquailisms used which would not be understood in cultures different from the writers. However, it brings a lot of good truths, and the following are some of the one-liners.
- God may promise, but you must push. - Do what you love, the money will follow. - God cares more about who you can become that who you've been. - Faith is not bound by fact or intellect. - Trust = Belief + Action. Belief is static; trust is dynamic. - Real growth always involves change. - Never consider yourself above criticism, beneath redemption, or beyond hope. - Faith + Good Stewardship + Giving = Abundance - Even if you have absolutely nothing... no one can deny you your power to believe!
A Plan for the Future Apr 20, 2005
In his book, THE GOSPEL OF GOOD SUCCESS, Kirbyjon Caldwell depicts a pathway to what he refers to as `holistic salvation'. To be successful on this journey there are six steps that must be personally internalized and outwardly exhibited. These steps are: Finding Your Calling, Staging a Comeback, Embarking on a Faith Walk, Whupping the Devil, Creating Wealth God's Way, and Learn and Practice the Fundamentals of God-Blessed Relationships.
Caldwell intertwines the word of God with his own personal experiences as the Pastor of Windsor Village United Methodist Church in Houston, TX to clarify the steps to holistic salvation. His flowing writing style is energetic, informative and thought-provoking. He discusses with honest candor and a shining zeal the steps he has taken in his Christian walk to achieve spiritual success, and in doing so, he plants food for thought in the mind of his readers.
When I first selected this book, I thought it would cater to having a successful business, and possibly offering advice on how to create and launch a business plan. Yet, this wasn't really the case. THE GOSPEL OF GOOD SUCCESS is an individual guidebook into healthier, more wholesome relationships with yourself, your peer groups and your God.

Excellent Book! Apr 27, 2004
I have read this book at least 4 times and each time I am inspired and encouraged. If you are trying to change your life or accomplish your goals, this is the book to read! The author is truly an blessed and knowledgeable man. I can confess I have made some truly positive changes in my life after reading this book.
SPIRITUALITY AND SUCCESS Jan 24, 2001
I read this book because of the author's skillful and articulate interview on the Bill O'Reilly televised show. I liked his demeanor and his clarity on the power of perception. His book is equally concise. He offers common sense religious avenues for dealing with the issues of today, and transforming your life. His road map covers emotions, finances, career, health, parenting. Among his six strategic steps to success is "stage a comeback". I especially liked that passage. It dissipates the perception of failure. A mistake is an opportunity to make a wiser decision the next time. If you enjoyed, Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson's "From Rage to Responsibility", and Harold Klemp's,"Secret of Love", you will glean a lot from Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell's , "Gospel of Good Success". I did. Start working on your self-esteem and your self-confidence today. Your success is in your hands.
