Book Review: The Legend of the Monk and the Merchant by Terry Felber

The Legend of the Monk and the Merchant by Terry Felber is subtitled: Twelve Keys to Succesful Living.
It is written in story form where a grandfather seeks to instill these twelve valuable lessons into the life of his grandson. At one point in the book we find this statement; “Julio, one of the most important lessons Alessio taught me was the necessity of giving to others the lessons that you have learned yourself.” I believe this statement gives us a window into the soul of the author who wrote this book.
There is a definate financial stewardship focus in this book. In fact, every single one of the twelve lessons has to do with finances.
While I believe it to be inadvertant, the author appears to state that success in living is directly related to financial success. While this might be the way our world would define success it does not line up with many Scriptural principles.
Overall I would say it was an interesting and easy read. Very few profound statements that would make me want to read the book again but entertaining nonetheless. If you are looking for a fun read and looking to incorporate some basic truths about Biblical stewardship I would recommend picking up a copy of this book.
