Originally a speech that Conwell delivered some 6,000 times in various communities across the country, Acres of Diamonds was inspired by a tale he heard from an Arab guide during a trip along the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. The tale, and Acres of Diamonds itself, is a parable about contentment, avarice, and a person 's ability to find all that he needs to live a fulfilled life just where he is. Riches, real tangible wealth, can be found by anyone in the town or city in which he lives, or so Conwell preached, if only he could manage to see it.Blending Christian piety and the pursuit of money, Conwell 's quirky speech will fascinate those looking for inspiration and the motivation to make it big.American lawyer, pastor, and orator RUSSELL HERMAN CONWELL (1843 1945) was born in South Worthington, Massachusetts. A captain during the Civil War, he went on to found Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In "Acres of Diamonds," Russell Conwell shows success is a spiritual idea--the result of spiritual principles. Though not a "get rich guide," Conwell's book shows how to find a fortune-if you know where to look. There are as many opportunities for success today as in Conwell's time, if not more so, because they are found first and foremost in one's own conscience. Through his ministry and philosophy that "all good things are possible," Conwell opened the doors of opportunity for untold millions. "Acres of Diamonds" echoes his core belief-that each of us is placed here on earth for the primary purpose of helping others. Conwell was a minister, the founder of Temple University, and two hospitals where no one was ever turned away for lack of money. He was also a famous lecturer. In his lecture, the story is told of a man who sells his farm to travel far and wide in search of diamonds. There is a moral to the story in "Acres of Diamonds," a story which Conwell presented as a lecture more than 6,000 and to untold numbers of people.
This is the only recent biography written about the dynamic Temple University founder. You will discover why he was referred to as the "penniless millionaire," and his "Acres of Diamonds" message will challenge you to seek the true wealth in your own backyard without getting sidetracked by selfishness and greed. In addition to containing an outstanding biographical account of his life and work along with a full length reprint of Conwell's famous "Acres of Diamonds" speech, this riveting book also describes how Conwell became the greatest motivational speaker of his time, started Temple University from nothing, and excelled as a Lawyer, writer, entrepreneur, and pastor. You will discover Russell Conwell's keys to spectacular church growth, and will also learn how this man of uncompromising faith built the largest protestant church in America with only fifty-seven cents. Whether you are an employee, business owner, entrepreneur, educator, student, professional, layperson, or pastor, this book will have a revolutionary impact on your life. This special hardback edition contains larger print than the paperback version.
