"The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived" by Steven Scott

I read this book this past weekend as a review for a blog tour on the book this week.
The book focuses on 6 main areas to help us apply it to any area of our life that we are wanting success and balance with.
Many times it's just a matter of waking up to the illusions we have believed and replacing those illusions with the reality. Waking ourselves up to those areas that we haven't seen clearly.
The six areas that Jesus used in his life on earth in perfect balance were:
1 Meaning..why was he here..why are we here
2. Mission...what is the vision?
3. Message...Being heard..understood..and appreciated
4. Manner....How do you come across? using empathy? compassion? patience?
5. Methods..the most important being can't do it alone.
6. Mission Accomplished..understanding and identifying the obstacles and roadblocks

He takes each of these 6 areas and gives practical examples in how to accomplish them and at the end of each chapter lists out things to look for...questions to ask yourself.

The end chapters focus on knowing your worth and knowing who Jesus is. He gives the truth of who Jesus is for those reading the book who may have never picked up a Bible and don't know the reason Jesus came to save us so that we might have eternal life and happiness with Him.
I think the author does a great job in explaining that it's not about's about relationship. It's not about's about people...and love...and relationship.
