In this actual generation, God is practically absent. The World is now a place where personal glory, fame and riches is the prime goal of everybody. The society is now a success driven one and the importance of having money and riches has never been more important. Christianity have unfortunately been caught up in this movement and we now have a new type of gospel known to many as the Prosperity Gospel. For many, this gospel is the intention or blessings that God has declared for his followers, for others this is simply a twisted and corrupted version of the real Gospel.
This book is an invitation to review the claims of the prosperity gospel and at the same time, review what the Bible really teaches. Are we born to be rich and possess the world ? Are we to live in extreme riches and abundance until our Lord returns or are we called to live out as followers and disciples of Jesus, being content with what we have and leaving everything we need to Jesus? Does God really promises all the riches of the world to all of us once we start following Jesus ?
Join me in this interesting and most important exploration of the hottest topic around, The prosperity gospel.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am 38 years old, married to Esther-Grace and father of Holy-Grace and Matthew. MY passion is the Study of the BIble and the languages of the original BIble.
What was your motivation behind this project? My first encounter with this type of gospel goes back to over 12 years when I met Esther. I have met many people , mainly of the pentecostal denominations who talks mainly about how Jesus can make us rich. I did believe in that and later on, when i really started to study my bible and seek God, I noticed that what the Bible said, and what they were saying were totally wrong. The experience I had were there to prove this.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I really hope they will understand that prosperity is not the goal or inheritance of every Christians. I hope the book will help them in discerning what is the will of God and what is not. I want people to realize that the love of money is the root of evil, and help them recognize the initial words of the prosperity Gospel.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? During the two years it took, i have been greatly changed, I think God worked in me during that time. I don't see things the same way and nothing material counts now. I am ready to say i am content and thankful to God whether I have things or I do not have. The only important thing is his presence in my life. Nothing else counts.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Greatest influence for writing a book is Jesus and the apostles who have been talking about his in the bible so many times. The second influence was Peter Jones of TruthXchange. He is constantly exposing heresies and false teachings. My favourite authors ? David Platt , Francis Chan, Normal Geisler, Josh McDowell and some others.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I am also working on some other books which by the will of God should be out in 2013/2014. some proposed titles are : Prophecies and Divinations: talking for God or for Satan ? Surviving Adultery: Before & After Seven Letters of Revelation: Then and Now Are we Still Sinners ?
