*This book has been kindly given to me pre-publication via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.* The Ways of Prosperity by Ally and Jeremy Butrous is a Theologically focused self-help book to help the reader find prosperity in their life. Divided into seven areas of one’s life, relationships, spiritual growth, health (both emotional and physical), financial, professional, mindset and social, Ally and Jeremy use scripture to back up their claims, providing their readers with a realistic approach to the modern world that still has links to God. This book was exactly what I needed, because not only is it God-driven, but it also places God, religion and prosperity in a modern context, dealing with real issues that many of us face, such as wanting to start businesses, problems with your relationships or dealing with people who may be bringing you down. After a tough year, this balance between God and reality was a breath of fresh air. One of my favourite things about this book was how the authors views and my views of the world and God were fairly aligned and in sync, something often difficult for me to find nowadays as a young person who believes in God. Having been baptised Protestant but growing up in a very small patriarchal, Catholic town, with a typical Catholic Spanish grandmother, my views of religion in my childhood sadly became warped and made me feel isolated. If you’re looking for a scripture-based book that can also be wholeheartedly relatable, I cannot recommend this book enough. This is how realistic their suggestions are throughout: Because of the nature of the book, with the authors including tasks for the readers to undertake, I was worried their advice would be ‘too religious’, especially because virtually everyone around me isn’t religious, it made me think – how could I implement their advice in a secular world? However, I was pleasantly surprised that they often reiterated that the readers didn’t need to undertake their work in the name of God and could go about it from the individual’s perspective. To me, this made me appreciate the authors even more because it felt like they understood my struggles and gave advice already thinking of my worries. Finding God in a secular world is a challenge, but I genuinely think Ally and Jeremy have honest intentions, and they want for everyone to achieve prosperity, whether the reader perceives God to be there with them or not. The only weakness I would say this book had was because of the strict structure of this book, following these areas of life, it could become slightly repetitive and perhaps forced. For example, the general advice of ‘God will guide you’ can be applied throughout the seven areas, so perhaps the authors sometimes found themselves repeating quotes. Overall, if you’re looking for advice from two successful individuals who have grounded their success in their belief in God, then I would strongly encourage you to read this book. From a great balance of God and advice to the authors opening about their experiences, this book makes for a great New Years read in my opinion!
