13. "The Man Nobody Knows" - Bruce Barton
"[Jesus] believed that the way to get faith out of men is to show that you have faith in them; and from that great principle of executive management he never wavered."
Published in 1924, Barton, a successful executive manager, writes a novel to prove that Jesus was the first businessman who "built the greatest organization of all." Using anecdotes from Thomas Paine to Aristotle - and combing through the Bible - Barton succeeded in convincing me.
I cannot remember who recommended this book... but thank you.
3.25 out of 5.0 Purple Jesuses.
