The Poorest Man in Zion is a response to George Clason's classic compilation. It purposefully mimics, albeit loosely, the format and tenor of his original work. Through a series of ten comparable essays, David Benson reviews the principles that lead to thriving professional and personal lives, to overcoming the sadness and pitfalls of human experience, and to becoming perpetually happy as individuals and communities. This work relies on cohesive parables--examined independently or as a progressive story--from the days of ancient Zion, the City of Holiness, featuring characters who explore and expound upon its philosophies.
