Summary

Find success in finance, friendships, and spirituality with the advice of a well-known expert.

It's safe to say that nearly everyone is seeking a happier, more successful life. So then why do so few attain it? Business Secrets from the Bible proposes a new way to view and approach success—one based upon key concepts from the Bible that are actually surprisingly simple. Written especially for those seeking success in the realms of money, relationships, and spirituality, this book encourages listeners to realize their common mistakes, come to terms with them, and turn those mistakes into future triumphs. Filled with concrete advice for improved finances, spirituality, and connection, this resource takes a practical approach and aims to change not just the minds, but the actions of listeners with a self-evident and persuasive pathway.

Drawing on his wisdom and knowledge of the Bible, the author reveals the clear link between making money and spirituality, and urges listeners to focus on self-discipline, integrity, and character strength in order to achieve personal prosperity. Special emphasis is given to establishing positive attitudes toward making money and adopting effective Biblically-based strategies.

  • Demonstrates how earnings and profits are God's reward for forming relationships with others and serving them
  • Stresses the importance of service, sharing, change, leadership, and creating boundaries and structures
  • Encourages listeners to focus on other people's desires and teaches why and how to make connections with many people
  • Suggests ways for listeners to transform themselves and continue toward success even in the face of fear and uncertainty

Attaining wealth and well-being is no longer a mystery. Let this book identify and correct the errors that are keeping you from fulfillment and happiness.

Outstanding Content

Powerful and insanely thought provoking as well as practical guidance for absolutely anyone seeking to build phenomenal business relationships. Blown away with rich content, including strong well known business examples and not just Biblical extracts. Crafted as a business book, it delivers that and more. Can't wait to give it another listen!!

Simply inspirational!

I was an instant fan of this book. It's easy to read , the chapters are not too long and the narration is engaging.

The real draw for me was the insight into 'ancient Jewish wisdom' as the author puts it.
I've haven't had so many 'aha' moments in single book.

The lessons will challenge you with varying degrees depending on your initial mindset but I encourage you to come with an open mind, it's a powerful collection of wisdom that goes far beyond business.

I look forward to the second read as there is much to put into action!

Very enlightening.

I wish I had this book at the start of my career. I find it educative, insightful and spirit lead. It is also very interesting to note all the passages quoted from the Hebrew Bible. Something I will never have thought of or put together like that. Well worth listening to.

Ancient Jewish Wisdom, Success God's Way

If you could sum up Business Secrets from the Bible in three words, what would they be?

Truth

Any additional comments?

Stop paying attention to all of those cute/inspirational memes and sayings that are posted all over the internet; they are so much rubbish. Listen to the wisdom handed down to, and through, the Jews. They have the successful history to warrant your attention.

It overwhelmed me to learn about the words and concepts that are not, and have never been, a part of God's language of Hebrew, and therefore are not things that we should be attaining to. For example, there is no word in Hebrew for retirement; God never intended for us to work and work for years so that we could eventually hopefully one day "relax" and do nothing or whatever we want. And there is no Hebrew word for "winning money" (do you lottery players hear that?). The Hebrew language teaches to earn money, not gamble for it or hope to win it. And the ancient Jewish wisdom (a new favorite phrase of mine) tells you how to be successful. It seems ironic, but the book teaches that you can be someone who works for a non-profit organization that helps people, but that you are always trying to get people to donate money ... OR ... you can be someone who is extremely financially successful and help more people in a much bigger way by having the large finances to do so. At one point, the book asks, and discusses, the question: Who has truly helped more people? Mother Teresa, or Bill Gates?

Bad philosophy, short on theology

I had high hopes for this book, knowing the Bible has a great deal to say about the practical matters of life. However, I just couldn't keep listening to this. There were two instances that stood out to me that really made me question the author's biblical view and moral view. First, he used divorce as an example of change and how change can be positive. He said that he often encourages couples who are not compatible to go ahead and divorce and accept the change. What? The second is his ambiguous understanding of basic honesty, saying you should lie to a friend if it spares their feelings. Once again, what? Thou shalt not lie? While the book may usage some good advice for business, I would prefer to find that advice from someone I can trust.

Solid advise and insights, recommended!

Where does Business Secrets from the Bible rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would rank this pretty high in both business and bible topics. I'm not Jewish but I still enjoyed his sharing of the many interesting elements of that faith.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Business Secrets from the Bible?

Even when I didn't agree with his biblical position, he did such a great job presenting it that I had to respect his viewpoints!

Very similar to Thou Shall Prosper

Most of the content of this book is the same as another book by Lapin, "Thou Shall Prosper". Although there is some variation, maybe about 10% new material, 40% slightly re-written material, and 50% just about the same. That said, if you haven't read Thou Shall Prosper, I very highly recommend you get one of the two. I personally liked the narrator in Thou Shall Prosper better. These are not ordinary business books, but really present a different world view about money.

Was Not Expecting This

Would you listen to Business Secrets from the Bible again? Why?

I have to say what I heard was not what I was expecting. What I learned is invaluable. Though mostly viewed from a male perspective it is relative to anyone at all. The lessons are very well founded and I actually took a lot away from this text.

Overall, Five Stars

Because of the valuable lessons gained from this audio book, the overall rating is a Big FIVE. What could be improved is the narrator- it was good, but I like Rabbi's voice better. Rabbi gives you loads of information you would not expect to learn from a regular business book, but then this no regular book.

Good book overall. a bit long, bit good stuff

struggled through some of it, and author sometimes overuses the term, "Ancient Jewish Wisdom." but overall, good stuff, from a different perspective. makes you think.
