Book Review – The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived

074648o

Steven Scott has written a masterpiece in this intriguing look into The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived.  What greater person to study than Jesus Christ Himself.  Scott’s insightful look at the characteristics of Christ and His teachings unfolds some dynamic principles that are meant to be inherent in every Christ-follower.

The author begins the book with the subject of what Christ can do for you, which in short, is a chapter dealing with the life-changing power of Jesus Christ.  Scott weaves personal stories, Scripture, the teachings of Jesus and many accounts from recent history to engage the reader into discovering how Jesus can help us to live life not only successfully, but also with joy.

My favorite chapter was “Meaning that Motivates: Finding Your Why’s”.  The basic premise is, don’t just do something for the sake of doing it or even just for money and gain.  Scott reasons we must find the why we do what we do.  Why should we create a product?  Why should we serve?  Why should we live the way we do?  Answering why gives us the true meaning.  Life is for a reason and we must identify the reason for our being and for the things we do, even as it has to do with our walk with God.  It helped me think on my calling and put it into proper perspective.  That this is not just a profession and a calling.  Since reading this chapter, I have been answering the “whys” for a few weeks now.

In all, this book is a good and easy read and will help the reader to discover all that Christ has for them.  It answers many of the great questions of life, not just from a theological stand-point but from a Biblically based perspective that simply looks at the life of Jesus Christ.

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.
