Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Principles of the Kingdom (God's Success Principles) by James M. Becher offers good insights given by Jesus about the parables depicting the kingdom of heaven. It is said that the principles from the Bible, if followed properly, will lead to a successful life. The 17 chapters in this book deal with 17 of these principles such as: knowing the purpose of life, forgetting the past, believing, focusing, resting, sowing and reaping, conquering fears, giving and receiving, and many others that will motivate readers to make positive changes in their thinking, lifestyle, and endeavors.

Principles of the Kingdom is a good book that will help readers make changes that will make them happier and empowered. All 17 principles have been explained in detail, making it easy for readers to understand them. Every chapter has quotes from a famous person that is connected to the contents in the chapter. The author handles the subject in a manner that is neat and simple and makes it easy for readers to understand and enjoy it. It is a good book for all those readers who want to discover their divine purpose and set their goals accordingly. It can also be used in Bible classes and as a starting point to improve faith in God. Sometimes it is easy for readers to understand God when points are listed one by one and explained in that order and this book does that so that there is no need for readers to search for the messages hidden between the lines.
