The Richest Man Who Ever Lived is essentially a commentary on the Old Testament Book of Proverbs. That can't be a bad thing. After all, Proverbs contains moral truths universally applicable regardless of one's faith or lack thereof. Despite its title, the book is not a guide for getting rich - at least not financially. While applying author Steven K. Scott's suggestions can certainly contribute to financial gain, the core objective of the...

Half way through the book, I started reading Proverbs one chapter per day, with pen and paper at hand to drop down notes. I shared this book with more than thirty friends and at least two of them told me that they bought the book and began doing the same thing as i did. Why this book is so attractive to me and other Christians? Not that we want to...
