This is a book review of The Richest Man Who Ever Lived – King Solomon’s Secrets to Success, Wealth and Happiness by Steven K. Scott. (The book is on the wisdom gleaned to us by King Solomon himself from the book of Proverbs.)
This book, published in 2006, sat on my bookshelf for several years going unread. I don’t recall when I bought it, or why? It may have been promoted at some church event or I may have just seen it in a bookstore, but I bought it and then filed it away on the shelf.
Last summer I was facilitating a study with family and friends on the subject of Conversational Peace, (a very good study by the way), when I was looking for some reference material and I saw this book and picked it up and started looking through it. I ran across several Proverbs from King Solomon about ‘our mouths’ and what comes from them!
I took the book to the class with me and read some quotes from the book to my group. I realized then that I had to read this book.
