In The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived, Mr. Scott invites his readers to understand the difference between a purpose driven life and a mission accomplished life. According to Mr. Scott, Jesus lived a “mission-accomplished life”. However, unlike Dr. Dyer, Steven K. Scott prioritizes the physical accomplishment of a mission or purpose, in position or wealth rather than a spiritual one. In Dyer, “mission-accomplished life” is a direct result of undertaking affirmations and not the physicality of achiev

I thought in theory this sounded like a great book but after reading it half way through I put it down. It was very dry and boring. And every other sentence from the author was "this is how I made a billion dollars" also, a lot of celebrity name dropping, as well as, withholding. I wanted to see more of Jesus and his teachings and less of the author in the book.

It is a good read. Mr. Scott reveals some different concepts and ideas that I have never thought about before.

I was given a copy of this book as a part of the Goodreads giveaway program.

I was drawn to this book, excited to study and learn more about the teachings of Jesus, and how we can apply them to our lives. Scott provides wonderful examples of how we can apply faith and biblical principles in our lives and businesses. He also provides easy to read and relatable text.

I was left wishing that there had been a little more on the topic of Jesus, and a little less on the personal success of the author. B

Steven gave me a project management model that would seemingly never fail. The book truly potrayed Jesus as the man and not only as the deity. The supporting evidence that Jesus could only have been nothing else except a son of God was alarming. I was transformed.

Great book for anyone in business. He gives great examples and stories of how he applied the principles he learned from Jesus in his work life and his personal life.

This was a very disappointing book. The author talked more about himself and his accomplishments than he did about Jesus.
