Genuine success - from God's point of view - is rooted in what God calls us to be...in what God sets as the goals for our lives. If you've yet to find fulfillment, it's time to turn to God's Word and discover Success God's Way.
The recording of this book is terrible. For that reason it gets a 1 out of 5
It's worth a read so buy the book instead.
Success God's Way is easily one of the best books I've ever read because the concepts presented by Dr. Stanley are concepts that will stay with me for the rest of my life.
This is not a three-step program to spiritual nirvana or a name-it-and-claim-it guide to life. It is a Biblically-centered view of how God defines success, what God expects of us on the path to success, and whether or not God wants us to succeed.
The primary concept that Dr. Stanley centers on is that God wants us to succeed at goals that He sets and approves of. He IS in our corner and He DOES want us to be successful. Of course, success God's way is not measured in the same terms that the world uses to define success, but it doesn't necessarily involve taking a vow of poverty or giving up on all your hopes and dreams, either. Real success is achieved with God and through God, not alone. It is not something we invent or contrive, it is something that comes from following Him and following Him His way.
Dr. Stanley is brilliant in the way that he approaches difficult spiritual topics and simplifies them so that anyone could understand. He is not preachy or verbose; he defines what he means by various terms and concepts and uses illustrations to bring the points home.
Charles Stanley narrates this book, and that makes it even better. I love hearing his voice because there is so much genuine tenderness and care in it; he is an excellent speaker and narrator, and I wish he would personally narrate all of his books.
This book is a short, but valuable gem. If you believe that you are not or have not been successful in your life and you would like to know why or if you would like to be more successful, please read this book. It is a book that I will listen to again and again, and one that has changed my view on more than one life-altering concept.

Would you listen to Success God's Way again? Why?
Yes, I would. I read the book before, so I new I liked it. I just needed something I could listen to while driving and traveling. I also listen to his CDs. Although the sound quality was poor and it really does sound like he is reading, it's a pretty incredible book and it's very motivating.
What other book might you compare Success God's Way to and why?
I really enjoy Max Lucado books. They are both amazing pastors.
What three words best describe Charles Stanley’s performance?
Vessel of God's Love
Any additional comments?
I love Charles Stanley's books. Is there any way that Audible could do a better job with the sound quality. The other books I heard sounded great.

I Loved it, great book on how to be successful in our life Gods way.
I listen to Dr Stanley all the time and never disappoints. This needs to be in every believers library.
God's way of reminding one that His promises will prevail before and after all. Just a matter of taking ownership of those promises.
