not enough about Jesus May 6, 2010
this book is too much about the author, and not enough about Jesus! He talked more about himself than he talked about Jesus.
Meaning (http://justinfarley.blogspot.com/2009/03/meaning.html) Sep 12, 2009
I would reluctantly recommend Steven K. Scott's The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived: Secrets of Unparalleled Success and Unshakable Happiness from the Life of Jesus.[...]. Though the author might have good intentions and several solid bits of instruction, I have difficulty with the general premise of his book. Christ is not concerned with our success and happiness as much as with our trust and obedience. For works on Christian leadership, I would rather one read books like Andy Stanley's Next Generation Leader or Reggie McNeal's Practicing Greatness. They not only are more effective in calling leaders to have integrity and influence but also to exhibit those characteristics for the correct reasons. Even so, many of his teachings and thoughts were helpful - especially his chapter on "Meaning that Motivates: Finding Your 'Whys.'" The author proposes that "understanding changes minds - action changes lives." He calls all Christ-followers to be intentional in identifying and deepening the reasons why they do what they do. Most people do what they do for one of the following reasons . . . Personal gratification, money, or material possessions Approval and applause of others Fear of failure, criticism, consequences, or loss Survival or significance Love Family Connection to God I keep returning to the passage that reads, "After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: 'Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began'" (John 17:1-5). Official Description: In The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived, Scott guides readers in a step-by-step application of the life-changing principles, skills, and methods that Jesus used throughout his earthly life. Although believers may spend a lifetime learning from Jesus' teachings, it's easy to overlook the powerful lessons demonstrated in His life. But when these incomparable lessons are learned and put to use, they enable ordinary people to achieve extraordinary success and happiness. From Jesus' earthly life readers will learn: How to break through the barriers that prevent them from achieving extraordinary success at work and relational success at home. How to experience a level of happiness and fulfillment that nothing the world offers can duplicate. How to use adversity and opposition as a springboard for greater success. How to love others in a way that increases their love as well. No matter what a person's area of expertise and in what setting a person influences others, living by the principles of Jesus' life on earth produces extraordinary success, unprecedented achievements, personal fulfillment, and blessings for others.

Don't buy Sep 7, 2009
I am reading this book as a Christian. It is basically your standard motivational text with the same stories you read in other motivational books, the same principles, and the same, shall we say, boredom. The only difference is that the author has sprinkled some Jesus dust through out! Do not purchase. A waste of money. Read Proverbs or Matthew instead. More interesting and a quicker more fun read then this book!

Awesome book, loved Steven Scott's understanding of the life of Jesus, and how he has used the same principles of Jesus' personality, in the business world and his personal life. His insights on success in business and relationships is valuable to all. I loved the book, and learned alot from it.
