by Daniel Lapin
There is no better source for both practical and spiritual financial wisdom than the knowledge found in the ancient Jewish faith and culture.
In the second edition of Thou Shall Prosper, Rabbi Lapin returns to provide a clear picture of how following an unwavering economic and philosophic vision of business and money -based on the established principles of Jewish tradition- can increase your potential for creating wealth.
While the world is constantly changing, the ten fundamental "commandments" developed in this book, which relate to both business and money, are as relevant as ever.
Applying wisdom from the Bible to business, finances and personal relationships, Rabbi Labin explains how each "commandment" can be understood and practiced to benefit all involved.
In his forward to Thou Shall Prosper, financial adviser Dave Ramsey states: "The ten commandments outlined in this book are for everybody. You don't have
to be Jewish. You don't have to be rich. You don't have to own a business or aspire to become the next Michael Dell. They are simple, practical principles for life and business."
