A Lifetime of Lessons

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.

ABC's of entreprenuership

The Monk and the Merchant is a great book to educate on the nuts and bolts of the correct philosophies of running a business...stay out of debt, persevere, be ready and paying attention when opportunities come. This book is great for those thinking of starting a business or for the ones who have existing businesses but need a good reminder of what the overall strategies should be.

If You Like Og Mandino

If you like Og Mandino and his classic success books written in story style, you'll love this one. I picked up the book to read for it's content and then couldn't put it down. Terry Felber skillfully weaves life-changing principles with a captivating story. No matter who you are, you'll appreciate the wit and wisdom of this success parable.
