Publisher's Summary

"Two nationally acclaimed real estate entrepreneurs share biblical principles to revolutionize your work and family life and give you the courage to stand up for what is right."

This book follows the story of highly motivated and entrepreneurial twin brothers David and Jason Benham, from their formative years and ventures into professional baseball to their rise as owners of a multimillion-dollar business empire and securing an HGTV reality series. It's a journey where the brothers learned how they must die to their dreams not just once but twice as they walked away from baseball before being called up to the Big Show and later as their TV series was stripped away from them just before airing when the network succumbed to media pressures surrounding their faith. These experiences only helped them realize that the key to powerful living is found when you die to your dreams, face your fears, and choose to live powerfully through it all. The biblical principles they implemented to guide their work and families are revealed in practical terms to apply to our daily lives and give us courage to stand for what is right. The book will expand on principles such as:

  • Show That You Are Faithful in Little
  • Be a Fountain to Others and Not a Drain
  • Produce More in Value Than You Receive
  • Work to Your Ability and Not Your Pay
  • Breathe Life into All Situations
  • Remember That You are Human Beings, Not Human Doings
  • Hold to a Standard of Disciplined Living
  • Don't Swing at Every Pitch
  • Find Your Greatest Blessings on the Other Side of Your Greatest Fears

    Story
    "Best book I read this year."

    The storyline and narrative is very engaging and thought provoking.
    I appreciate their authenticity and boldness as the Benham Brothers share their truths about their lives.

    In this book you will find practical business principles, encouragement for your faith, hope after life doesn't go our way.

    I read over 20 books this year, including authors like Jim Rohn, Ivanka Trump, John Maxwell, Bob Goff, Crystal Paine, Lara Casey, and many more. Whatever The Cost is by far my #1 read this year.

    Thank you, Gentlemen!!

    "terrible"

    If I wanted a course on religion I would have read the Bible. This is not what I wanted to buy.

    Story
    "Deep thoughts and greater challenges"

    This book has been an incredible blessing to read. The story these two brothers are able to tell and the principles that they've learned to apply have been such an incredible challenge in my life to apply the same biblical principles. That said the book was written very well in a fun and friendly manner and I thoroughly enjoyed the verbal back-and-forth the brothers gave each other, as it felt familiar as myself growing up with two brothers. I would highly recommend this book to anybody in business anybody raising a family or involved in their community and churches as his tolls and incredible story incredible journey they went through and how God can really bless your life by following his Word.

    Story
    "Good men with a great story that wil inspire you."

    this is a great story for young parents with rambunctious childen, for people who face difficult trials and believers who want a vision on how to change our cluture. Humor and sibling rivalry are popcorned into this inspiring story.

    Story
    "GREAT READ!! or should I say GREAT LISTEN!!"
    Where does Whatever the Cost rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its the 2nd Christian Book that I have listened to, and this one was awesome, way better than the other book I listened to!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Whatever the Cost?

    The story has a little of everything in it, drama, laughter, decision making


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed listening to this book, before the book I had no idea whom the Benham brothers were, I just kinda took a jump and decided to purchase this book, Im glad I did!!

    Story
    "Faithful Warriors"

    These guys demonstrated and live some great point:
    Parenting,
    they received an upbringing by 2 committed parents that helped shape them into the men they are.
    Stick to your guns:
    though it wasn't always easy, they stood firm in the face of evil.
    Trust:
    they chose to trust God and not things of this world.
