At first glance the Old and New Testaments of the Bible could not appear to be more different on the subject of prosperity. The Hebrew teachings encourage the accumulation of wealth and state that God will prosper us if we trust in Him while the Gospels and letters of the New Testament recommend discarding wealth and living a simple life. ‘Thou shalt remember the Lord thy God for it is He that giveth thee the power to get wealth.’ Deuteronomy 8:18. ‘I tell you it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven.’ Gospel of Matthew 19:24. But is there more to it than that? Is there an underlying, unifying theme of what prosperity actually is and how to attract it throughout the whole of the Bible? This book reveals that there is — and that this ancient text, interpreted carefully and comprehensibly, is a prosperity workbook for the modern age.
