Ellen G. White, in her counsel to writers and editors wrote “ . . . we are now altogether too near the close of this earth's history to keep before the attention of the people a class of books which do not contain the message which our people need. Draw their attention to books treating on practical faith and godliness” (Counsels to Writers and Editors, p.147).
Author, counselor, and lay pastor, Omar Miranda has written such a book for people of all ages.
The book is titled: Picking the King's Brain: Learning Life Hacks from the Wisest Man on Earth and is available at amazon.com.
Omar wrote the book in a response to interacting with so many people—both Christians and non-Christians—who were honestly searching for real meaning in their lives. He states, “I just got tired of seeing people spinning their proverbial wheels looking for answers that satisfied their very souls, when all the while there was this amazing (but sometimes difficult to understand) book of the Bible that God has provided for them with all the answers to all their questions. This book of the Bible helped me in the most practical and relevant way in my life and I wanted to share what I learned from it with everybody.”
Imagine, what would it be like to be able to hang out with the wisest person on earth--EVER, and pick his brain?
What would you ask him? The same questions we all would, right?! "How do you live the best life ever?" "How do you navigate this life so that you can get the best, be the best, and avoid all the mistakes, pain, and misery?" "What was your experience like?" "What lessons did you learn?" "If you could do it over, what would you do differently?" And, lastly: "What do I need to do, and learn, and be, so I can do and be better and go further in life than you?"
Well, you don't have to imagine this conversation, because the transcript of such a life is available for you--today! In this book the author walks you through Ecclesiastes, King Solomon's autobiography--his personal and private journal of his life's experiences; where he tells everything he did--both good and bad--what he learned, and more importantly, what you can learn from his life.
If you have a pulse, then this book is for you! Read it and learn Life Hacks from the one who: had it all, did it all, and experienced it all. I know you'll be amazed at what he learned; and more importantly: you'll be blown away by how practical, profound, and how relevant his ultimate findings and conclusions about life (with and without God) were--and still are.
