Twelve Keys to Successful Living
By terry Felber
(Forward by Dave Ramsey)

OVERVIEW: Terry Felber's story of the monk and the merchant, set in Rome during the Renaissance, is full of sixteenth-century adventure and real-world truth. As his tale unfolds, Felber asks and answers questions about family, creativity, innovation in business, and God. As he explains in a new foreword, this book helped Dave Ramsey rediscover the marketplace as a mission field—and merchants as ministers. The book includes a personal and small group study guide.

AUTHOR: Terry Felber is an author and entrepreneur who speaks to large audiences around the world about principles for successful living. Over the past twenty-five years, Terry has built a sales organization of more than fifty thousand people. He has served on the board of directors of the National Association of Evangelicals; the advisory board of Alticor, an international multibillion-dollar corporation; and a half dozen other corporate and ministry boards.

MY REVIEW: The Legend of the Monk and the Merchant is a much-needed biblical resource for individual and small groups that addresses money and ministry in the marketplace. Dave Ramsey said, "I immediately ordered a big box of these books and made it required reading for my whole team...My team and I love this book."

It took me a few pages to really get into this book but once I did it was hard to put down. This is a splendid story written in a very interesting way. You may be familiar with the twelve keys to successful living but I feel confident that after reading this book you will see them in a new light and they will change the way you see yourself, your job and your purpose.

I believe this book will open your eyes to the opportunities for service and leadership all around you.

(I received this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for a fair and honest review.)
