The Ultimate Life by Jim Stovall
Jim Stovall wrote two books (The Ultimate Gift and The Ultimate Life) that could cause significant life changes if the twelve principles (Gifts) he presented in story form were applied to our lives. Even though neither book is overtly Christian, I think most Christians would quickly find wisdom from the Bible in each of the gifts. He uses mild humor and basic human nature to draw us in and cause the reader to hunger for more in life - not to get, but to give more. Both books can be read relatively quickly. The twelve gifts he shares are: Work, Money, Friends, Learning, Problems, Family, Laughter, Dreams, Giving, Gratitude, Day, and Love. I highly recommend both books.
