“With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand”- Mark 4:33. Jesus used parables throughout his ministry and Terry Felber’s book The Legend of The Monk and The Merchant shows that parables can still teach lessons today. In Legend, wealthy businessman Antonio shares the twelve principles of his success.
The story centers around the twelve principles and has example from Antonio’s life to illustrate each. The principles stress the importance of perseverance and responsible handling of money.
As Antonio shares his life story with his grandson Julio the reader learns how Antonio went from being the foster son of a monk to one of the most influential merchants in Italy. Principle one “work hard and God will proper you” is illustrated by Antonio’s invention of Venice’s trade currency, which is the source of his fortune My favorite part of the book was the surprise ending that tells what Antonio did with his money.
Despite the good message the book has a few problems. The characters are very underdeveloped and the Renaissance Italy setting clashes with the modern concepts and speech.
I believe this book would be enjoyed most by those who view it as a pleasant way to learn business principles, rather than by those who read for entertainment. Though it’s not Pilgrim’s Progress, The Legend of The Monk and The Merchant is worthy to stand with such great business parables as Who Moved My Cheese? and The Go-getter. – Amy Stoller, Christian Book
