This was the first book by Neville that I read. It was recommended by Robert Tennyson Stevens, who is a great teacher of ancient knowledge/modern wisdom. This book was life-changing, thus the 5-star rating with is reserved only for books that at that level. Read it and it will light a fire in your belly that will never go out. Way before there was a "self-help" and spiritual movement, there was Neville, one of the sources of it all.

To him the Bible is a psychological drama that is mystically revealing the consciousness of man...yawn, yawn, yawn... And the Kabbalah of it all! Not my cup of it. Kabbalah doesn't appeal to me.

I found this to be a unique book, since it seems to be a mix of Eastern philosophy (Advaita Vedanta, Monism), and American "New Thought". It was also written in the 1940's, which means it was before much was known of these thought systems in any case. It contains some excellent pointers and scriptural interpretations related to the idea that 'consciousness' or 'awareness' is all (and God). It is way ahead of its time in terms of this idea and the way it is explained. HOWEVER, this knowledge is t ...more

Love this book. It is a metaphysical interpretation of the bible. If you are among the ones who believe that there is a silver thread of common spiritual truth among all religions, and you like thinkers who offer these kinds of broader perspectives, you'll like this. Neville offers that the bible was never meant to be taken literally, but instead that it is a symbolic/mystical psychodrama that serves to teach higher universal truths.

The essence of 'Your Faith is Your Fortune' is that, 'The Scriptures are psychological dramas and will reveal their meaning only as they are interpreted psychologically.' So, in essence, Neville Goddard says that much of what is written in the Bible is not to be taken literally; rather, he feels that those who wrote the Bible were predominantly sharing wisdom through symbols and metaphors and that by understanding the symbols and metaphors we can apply the underlying principles in our own, moder ...more

Terrific!

I absolutely love reading Neville Goddard's books so this is no surprise. I am so grateful for the affordability of such vast knowledge. Very impactful.

In this little book Neville expounds the same valuable truths as usual - imagine your wish fulfilled and you will obtain your desires. I.e. while in a meditative state visualize your desires and feel the feelings you would feel were your desires actually fulfilled.

He sees the Bible as "a great psychological drama with all of its characters and actions as the personified qualities and attributes of his own consciousness" and amongst other things interprets Jesus' twelve disciples as representing

I'm a big fan of Neville's, and the book "Power of Awareness" is one of my favorite books of all-time. This book wasn't quite as well done for me as that one. "Your Faith is Your Fortune" started out slow, I wondered if I'd even get through it at points. There was many areas that were exceptional within as well, but this read was a bit uneven for me leading to the 4 star rating.

This book came to me at the exact time I needed to read it. It is awesome and hits the nail right on the head. It definitely has aided my life's journey if not described what I deeply wanted it to be and has aided it's transformation.

I AM...a huge advocate of Neville's work...No man or woman will ever think the same after this book has been read and digested. The Wise One once said... this book will bring about a resurrection. Enough said...Enjoy!!!

It was good

a little wordy and confusing at times in the way things were presented, but enlightening as well. I've read better, but for the price, with it.

Read several short books by Goddard simultaneously and was impressed with his consistent and clear analysis of the true/hidden meaning of Biblical scripture.
