Item description for The Great Investment by T D Jakes...

The preacher and author of The Lady, Her Lover and Her Lord shares his three-tiered Bible-based formula for personal success, stressing the foundational value of each "pillar" in a person's life. Reprint.

Publishers Description
Bishop T. D. Jakes, preacher, author, motivator, and entrepreneur, is one of the most respected and influential voices in the country today. Now, in The Great Investment, Bishop Jakes gives readers the blueprint for balanced successful living. He explains how the triad of faith, family and finance is the cornerstone of a life of moral success--success based on God's plan.

Faith is the foundation of all that we want to achieve. Bishop Jakes explores the impact faith can have in healing and restoring quality of life to those whose history has caused them setbacks.

Family is the anchor, keeping us grounded, supporting us, and allowing us to stay focused. A healthy family sustains us while giving meaning to our endeavors.

Finally, and no less crucial, Finance is the often misunderstood factor in the equation for success. Bishop Jakes removes the veil from this frequently neglected topic, and shows that, not only is it not profane to focus on this area, it is essential.

Bishop T. D. Jakes's goal is to empower every woman and man. With this new book he provides the tools for us to chart a course for success and accomplish everything that God has promised. This is truly a book of our time.

TD Jakes is deceived  Feb 14, 2006
TD Jakes is deceived by wealth... see Jesus' parable of the sower. He is right to say that we should avoid both extreme's (poverty and wealth), but then he goes into how we can get a 100-fold financial blessing.

I'm very happy to see him expose the false teaching of the prosperity teachers. But how can TD Jakes live in mansions and have luxury cars when he knows his brothers/sisters in Africa (for one example) are dying of starvation? Truly, his conscience has been seared as with a hot iron:

1 Timothy 4:2
Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.

Example, pg. 69:
"Money is to serve you, and you should serve God by using it according to His plan."

How is living in luxury, when our brothers and sisters are dying, spending money according to God's plan? That's what TD Jakes does; live in luxury.

Please, learn the truth from our Lord Jesus. He taught what stewardship is, in the "Parable of the Talents." Ten percent doesn't belong to God, as TD Jakes says,,, 100% does! We are to manage all of God's money for the kingdom, and only live on what we need (not want). That's the lifestyle of Jesus and His disciples.

TD Jakes is teaching people to be deceived by wealth. Those who are deceived don't know it, or else they'd refuse to be decieved. TD Jakes is deceived... just look at his lifestyle and seared conscience. What will he say when he meets his brothers and sisters in heaven, the ones who have died from starvation because TD bought a new luxury vehicle or another vacation home?
Insightful, Scriptural, Practical ! ! !  Jul 2, 2004
T. D. Jakes describes life as a journey in which some people pack more than is necessary for the most productive trip. He wisely advises carry three bags, faith, family, and finances. I think it is no accident that he arranges them in that order either. Faith is needed for this life and preparation for the next. Family is something you can take with you, provided they share the faith and finances encompasses effective stewardship principles that reveal what you have to show for your existence.

Although each of these subjects is familiar, Bishop Jakes sheds new insight in each of the three arenas. He builds to a climax in his teaching on Romans 8:28-30. It is worth the price of the book just to read what he says in the few pages devoted to that topic alone! He will build your faith because he speaks from the perspective of a credible source, i.e., it's lived it.

This book is comprehensive in that he covers both Old and New Testament teachings on the topics. He includes personal experiences. Bishop Jakes is even confident enough to be vulnerable in places, not one who claims in a phoney way to have all the answers. His advice is practical, doable, workable. I highly recommend this book.

Kudos to Bishop Jakes!  Dec 25, 2001
Another masterpiece by Bishop Jakes! I was particularly impressed by his practical teachings related to financial matters. He takes a look at the two extremes - poverty and abundance. Rather than teaching 'pie in the sky', he shares the importance of financial responsibility by maintaining a budget and using credit wisely. He goes on further to discuss saving, investing and sowing into good ground. It's very inspirational to hear messages from the clergy that go beyond `naming it and claiming it', but rather teaches that there is a part that we must play in setting our financial affairs in order. Kudos to Bishop Jakes!!
Woman Thou Art Loosed,The Devotional  Jul 30, 2001
What a wonderful book. I bought this book when I neeed it the most. As a woman, I am my worst critic, and at times I feel I am not worthy of the wonderful things in life because of my past. T.D.Jakes words describe how God loves us regardless of our color, our pasts, the shape of our body, or our hair color. Its the size of our heart and the beauty within that is the most important to God. I learned through his words to accept myself as I am. I am truly grateful I have found T.D.Jakes! I realize now that I am a masterpiece to God. What a wonderful thought that brings !!

Thank you, Karen Michelle

Touched My Heart  Dec 20, 2000
I actually saw this book in a retail store and it sparked my attention. Within 2 days, I read the entire book. I felt like God was speaking to me with each word. The finance area was an interest to me because I have Christian friends who think that they have to be poor. That's not what God wants. I no longer feel guilty for wanting more. In fact, I'm excited because if I do get more, I will be able to help others more. I am in a situation where I do give as much as I can; however, I wish I could do more. I'm going to re-read it and begin to apply it to my life. I have already recommended it to others to read.

In the area of Family. I realized that I need to be a participant in solving family issues.

In the area of Faith, this book has only increased it even more.

Please take the time to read this book. You won't be sorry. The author knows what it is like to be rich and to be poor so he is able to relay the information to others in a way that makes sense.

Thank You, T.D. Jakes... It was the first time that I have read your book and I am looking forward in reading your other books.
