Publishers Description In a success-driven culture, measuring one's worth is too often dependent upon what one has attained. And just as often this exercise leads to despair. Tommy Nelson believes the Bible is not silent on the subject of success and successful living, but God does use a different yardstick. Godly success measures how well you are living. Success, according to the Bible, is about who you are rather than what you attain. Tommy Nelson will show you the areas in life where you must be successful. Mastering life is about finding God's hand upon you. You can be successful and be an utter failure if you are successful in the wrong things. The 12 Essentials of Godly Success will show you the nonnegotiable areas where you must succeed.

If you want to know about success...evangelical style Dec 14, 2005
This book is written by the pastor of Denton Bible Church, Tommy Nelson. The book is a reflection of his teaching, discussing 12 principles to having Godly success. After going through all of the chapters, one receives a clear idea what it means to be a person that is living his life the way God wants them to live...according to an evangelical Christian worldview. Many of the principles are common sense, but many others will buck the current idea of success on many levels, yet still, even they make sense to a degree. It's all about putting your priorities in order. However, if one pays particular attention to Jesus teachings about family values according to the Gospels, one can pick up on conflict with the current evangelical view. See, for instance, Bart Ehrman's JESUS: APOCALYPTIC PROPHET OF THE NEW MILLENIUM.
This is a great object lesson in the values of evangelical Christianity, which is why I give 5 stars.
