In this hardcover book, you’ll learn that the ups and downs of the economy prove Rabbi Daniel Lapin’s famous principle that the more things change, the more we need to depend upon those things that never change. Mostly similar to the 1st edition, this edition has updated examples plus a foreword by Dave Ramsey. There’s no better source for both practical and spiritual financial wisdom than the time-tested knowledge found in the ancient Jewish faith and its culture.
In “Thou Shall Prosper: Ten Commandments for Making Money”, Rabbi Daniel Lapin offers a practical approach to creating wealth based on the established principles of ancient Jewish wisdom. A renowned business consultant and Biblical scholar, Rabbi Daniel Lapin uncovers a mother lode of motivational inspiration and practical guidance that will increase your potential for creating wealth, no matter what your faith or background may be.
The book details the ten permanent principles that never change, the ten commandments of making money if you will, and explores the economic and philosophic vision of business that has been part of Jewish culture for centuries. By blending contemporary business stories and his own business experiences with the wisdom of the Torah, Talmud, and even examples from the Zohar, (the Jewish book of Kabalah or mysticism), Rabbi Daniel Lapin, your rabbi, explains the essence of each commandment and shows you how to use this knowledge to prosper financially.
Rabbi Daniel Lapin helps you understand such timeless truths as “Being in business for yourself”, avoiding the trap of ‘wage-slavery’, learning to become a leader, changing with the times, and particularly this: Everyone, and that includes you, is in business, unless you happen to be a tenured university professor or a Supreme Court judge.
So that you can apply each principle to your life immediately, Rabbi Daniel Lapin suggests engaging and accessible action steps to start you right off on the path to prosperity.
