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

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!!

Great listen

I was kind of biased going into this book but the Benams are the real deal. Forged by the audacity of their pastoral father a grit and drive was developed, implemented and channeled for the Kingdom of God and his Glory.
A great testimony story and witness God's power blessing & faithfulness. #AGTG

once again a religious book too dishonest to say

I have NO problem with religious people publishing religious books. I have a major problem that disclosure does not make those facts know. I feel mis led and lied to

Awesome!

I highly recommend this book! I can’t say enough about it. I’m going to read it again and it confirmed what I have been feeling about taking a more active role instead of abdicating our authority.

Excellent role model's for leading a purposeful Christian life

For me, the first half of the book was a little drug out. But the second half was powerful, spot on, and a perfect example of how your life and business ambitions should be pursued. Be prepared to recognize some of your weaknesses and shortcomings, and a great way! The book will totally make you wonder, exactly how much more successful your entrepreneurial endeavors would have been had you totally adhered to God every step of the way.
