I wrote this book to help people like myself, who may have tried to understand the Bible or have been intimidated by it. In the beginning of my study of the Bible, I spent hours trying to get the hang of it. I got lost reading long lists of names I couldn't even figure out how to pronounce. The book of Leviticus contained lists of rules and regulations.

Is there a "secret" formula in the Bible for personal wealth, health, and happiness? Is there an economic plan in the Bible for businesses, nations and the world to follow to ensure prosperity for its citizens? What does the Bible have to say about money and economics? The answers may surprise you. The Bible does have "secret" formulas for personal and national wealth. These formulas are "discovered" in this book. This book examines the economic thoughts, ideas, and philosophy of the Bible and elucidates how various biblical characters utilized these concepts to achieve unparalleled personal wealth. David and Solomon utilized the economic plan of the Bible to bring unprecedented wealth to the nation of ancient Israel. The transactions and economic principles used by the Patriarchs is examined in detail. The economic system proposed by Moses, intended for all nations and the world, is reviewed and its applicability for nations today is discussed. The book shows how Solomon and Ancient Israel achieved unprecedented prosperity, yet on Solomon's death the economy collapsed. The reasons for the prosperity and collapse are examined in detail. The book shows how the Persian Empire sunk the equivalent of over$1 Billion to form a Jewish State in Palestine. Yet, despite this, the Jewish State nearly failed. nehemiah, who some call the first turnaround manager, intervened and saved the state from extinction. The book also reveals the changes in these ideas and thoughts taught by Jesus Christ. Jesus used many specific coins of his day in his parables and teachings. In some cases, these teachings cannot be understood without understanding the role of the coins used in Jesus society. These parables are examined one by one in great detail to determine the exact meaning. The coins mentioned are illustrated and their role in the Judeo-Roman society of Jesus day is explained. The Bible mentions a millennium, a time when God will rule the earth. During this time the earth is prophesied to be very prosperous, with every person owning their own land and having an abundance of food, money, clothing, housing, and everything a human could want. What will the economic policies of Jesus government be to achieve this? These policies are clearly set forth in the Bible and are explained in this book. The Bible's "secret" formula for achieving personal wealth, health, and happiness has been hidden in plain sight for centuries. This book reveals this formula and shows how the reader can achieve personal wealth, health, and happiness by following the personal economic philosophy and guidelines of the Bible.

Sind Sie zufrieden mit Ihrem Leben, so wie es ist? Oder sagen Sie: Soll’s das wirklich schon gewesen sein? Wenn Sie sich insgeheim denken, dass irgendwo Größeres auf Sie wartet, Ihnen aber noch der letzte Anstoß fehlt, um endlich die verdammte Komfortzone zu verlassen, dann sind Sie hier genau richtig. Denn Jen Sincero wird Sie packen und von der Couch ziehen, damit Sie endlich das Leben leben, auf das Sie selbst neidisch wären. Aber Vorsicht: Nach diesem Buch ist das Leben definitiv anders! Jen Sinceros eigenes Leben war lange Zeit alles andere als berauschend: Sie hangelte sich von einem schlechten Job zum nächsten, hatte nie genug Geld und fuhr ein Auto, das fast auseinanderfiel. Bis sie entschied, dass sie etwas ändern muss. Sie las gefühlt jedes Selbsthilfebuch auf dieser Welt und ging zu Seminaren, bei denen man Leute umarmen oder seine Wut an einem Kissen auslassen musste. Und – es half. Jen Sincero schrieb ihr erstes Buch und schließlich noch ein zweites, das zu einem Bestseller wurde. Sie arbeitete als Coach, gab Seminare, reiste um die Welt und sprach vor großem Publikum. Sie erreichte genau das, wovon sie immer geträumt hatte. Jetzt gibt Jen Sincero ihre Erkenntnisse und ihr Wissen weiter und zeigt, wie man die Fähigkeiten, die in einem schlummern, endlich zum Blühen bringt. Es geht darum, sich glasklar darüber zu werden, was einen glücklich macht und wobei man sich am lebendigsten fühlt, und es dann mutig umzusetzen, statt sich einzureden, man könnte es nicht schaffen. Mit viel Humor und Schlagfertigkeit gibt sie praktische Ratschläge und zeigt Übungen, die dabei helfen die Selbstsabotage zu beenden und das zu erreichen, wovon man träumt.
