A Lifetime of Lessons Jan 30, 2008
There is a delicate balance in life between our business life and our spiritual life. If you're looking for a self-help book on maintaining that balance, you'll love THE LEGEND OF THE MONK AND THE MERCHANT by Terry Felber. This brief 140-page book is a very quick read and covers twelve principles for successful living.
The story centers on a grandfather passing on a lifetime of knowledge to his grandson during a trip to Rome. The grandfather relays the story of how he was raised as an orphan by the monk who found him and the merchant who taught him so many of life's most important lessons. Follow his journey through life as he makes his decision to become a merchant rather than a monk, begins his business career and is taught the twelve principles by his merchant `father'. The book kind of has a "Rich Dad Poor Dad" feel to it, only set in ancient Rome and focuses far more on the spiritual aspect of life.
As a minister, the thing I appreciated most about this book is Felber's clear explanation of a few Biblical passages that get commonly misconstrued. Two passages in particular, Luke 18:25, "easier for a camel to go through the eye of the needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God" and also Matthew 5:5, "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth".
The book contains valuable principles and is a very fun read. Highly recommended.
A great little book Oct 3, 2007
This book was on Dave Ramsey's suggested reading list and I am very happy I got it. It is a great little book that I could not put down. The story shows how people can get conflicted with business, money, and the church and how these conflicts play out later in life.
Books is great, Amazon sucks Sep 24, 2007
This review is more of this site's failure that anything detailing the book. this site has this listed as a "hardback". When I received the book, it was paperback. I asked for a replacement, which they promptly sent. However, it was another paperback. I tried using their telephone service but got someone that spoke poor English. The best I could understand they were going to correct the issue and send a replacement. It's been weeks with no word. Who knows what the guy actually told me.
Outstanding Book Jul 5, 2007
