I have mixed feelings about The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived; well, not the man...but the book about the man. First, a little about the book; written by Steven K. Scott, the best-selling author of The Richest Man Who Ever Lived and The Greatest Words Ever Spoken, it's about Jesus and how his life on earth can be a model for ours to help us in overcoming adversity and/or limitations that challenge our ability to "live our lives with unparalleled success and unshakable happiness."

Ok, so the book is well-written. It is also put together very well, following a very logical progression of alliterated points. There is no question in my mind that the points are practical, balanced, and beneficial for achieving the results promised by the author. I also believe that Jesus is the ultimate model for living life on this earth. Where are my mixed feelings?

As I have said, I agree with the principles and teaching exposited in the book, The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived...I believe them and I try to model and live my life by them. I especially liked the "Whole Different Kind of Love" chapter. I also like very much that almost all the chapters ended with a list of action steps to help the reader with concrete starting points for making change in their life. What I did not care for, and I don't mean this to be a criticism of the book (I really hope I have qualified myself enough by now), is the packaging. I'm left with a taste that the message of Christ's gospel is being hawked as a self-help clinic; "How to be like Jesus in 6 easy steps!" I don't want to imply that is the intent of the author, Scott, I'm just saying that's the aftertaste I'm left with. I think the gospel is about much more than "earthly success" and "unshakeable happiness.

I'm going to be 50...someday - to emulate Meg Ryan.

And Steven Scott tells me that on that day, I will have lived 2600 of my (on average) 3,952 weeks. Does that bother you? It bothers me... and I am actually closer to 40 than 50 (wrinkles not withstanding).

Do you want to know that the world is different because you were here?

Steven Scott is an ordinary guy who has succeeded in extraordinary ways because he has used the principles that he learned by following Jesus. With a fair amount of learning from Solomon and Thomas Edison thrown in.

He started his career with eight failures and became a multi-millionaire. In this book, he shows you how to succeed at being the best YOU you can be, by being like Jesus. This book is "How to win friends and influence people" plus every book that John Maxwell ever wrote, all in one. You can save yourself a ton of time and money if you buy, read, highlight, study, and apply the principles of this book.

Rarely do I find a book that I am convinced every one of my kids needs to read. Right now I'm plotting how to get this book in formats that they will all assimilate. (This one's an audio learner (audio book), this one's a visual learner (regular book), what if I read it aloud at bedtime for this one...)

I believe we are all called to greatness. You are called to greatness. God put you on earth for a purpose. You can fulfill it. This book is a great tool.

Format: Hardcover
The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived teaches us the principles of fulfillment from the life of Jesus. I think it's interesting, for a Christian, to contemplate the man Jesus as opposed to the diety of Jesus. Christians believe that Jesus had a dual nature as both man and God, but this book really investigates how the man acted in order to carry out his divine mission.

From the first chapter, which provides the arguments for why you should base your life on the principles by which Jesus lived his, to the last chapter, which warns against living your life only for the possessions and fame you can garner, this book provides the most useful reference to the principles of life, which Jesus lived and taught, that I have found.

My favorite chapters were "The Sense of Mission", "A Message that Communicates", and "Your Incredible Worth." Here's my favorite quote from the book:

"Think how much better our world would be today if we valued ourselves and those we work with, meet, and interact with in the manner of Jesus"

This statement is made after referencing Matthew 6:26-27 and Matthew 10:29-31 where Jesus reminds his disciples that God takes care of all living things and he cares even more for them. Have you thought of that today? God is caring for every living animal and plany on the planet, but he cares more for that person you're having an argument with than he does the animals and plants. It will make us stop and interact differently if we think like this.

Great book. Much of the content acted as a reminder of past readings, but there were equally as many new and insightful thoughts.

Review:
This book is a rich resource of lessons from the words, life and actions of Jesus Christ - the greatest man who ever lived. Steven K. Scott's insights are both refreshing and challenging. I particularly enjoyed chapter seven: A Manner That Moves Men and Women. I'm glad to have this book in my library and gladly recommend to all my friends.

Summary:
In The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived, Scott guides readers in a step-by-step application of the life-changing principles, skills, and methods that Jesus used throughout his earthly life. Although believers may spend a lifetime learning from Jesus' teachings, it's easy to overlook the powerful lessons demonstrated in His life. But when these incomparable lessons are learned and put to use, they enable ordinary people to achieve extraordinary success and happiness.

From Jesus' earthly life readers will learn:
How to break through the barriers that prevent them from achieving extraordinary success at work and relational success at home.
How to experience a level of happiness and fulfillment that nothing the world offers can duplicate.
How to use adversity and opposition as a springboard for greater success.
How to love others in a way that increases their love as well.

No matter what a person's area of expertise and in what setting a person influences others, living by the principles of Jesus' life on earth produces extraordinary success, unprecedented achievements, personal fulfillment, and blessings for others.
