Success Through the Bible – Book 4
In 1982 I was challenged by a Christian Businessman over a period of some months to move my life into a new dimension and restate my then somewhat backslidden former faith. In February 1983 I gave my heart to The Lord after experiencing a personal miracle. From that night, I did everything I knew to prove to myself and others that I had made a mistake and needed to correct things, but the more I read, the more audio I listened to and the more sermons I attended, the closer those things drew me to the Lord.
Fortunately, my early days were influenced by the instructions and philosophies of the Australian author Kevin Conner just after he returned to Melbourne, Australia from Orlando USA. After three years there, the Lord called me to Sydney, where I joined Christian Life Centre under Frank Houston, that not long afterwards became Hillsong Church under the direction of one of the best preachers worldwide, Brian Houston, that has the ability to mould the bible into every day lifestyle and challenges.
It was in 1984 that I began writing Christian Material. A transition that wasn’t to hard, as I had been writing for a while at that point and had already had 5 books published – the 5th was an international success. And it was from that background that this book and others were penned.
I am not a theologian, nor a Bible School graduate, but had a burning passion to do things that I could pass on to others in my simplistic understanding. Yet to my amazement, many of my friends that read my works asked for copies to read, and then many of those would be photocopied and handed around.
The first of my works were my rewrites of the Psalms. I just wanted to get to understand the heart of King David, so I armed myself with around 10 or 15 kinds of bible and commentaries and read, studies and then wrote each Psalm line by line. I did this for my own understanding, and then would write and rewrite these passages until I felt I could benefit from what was written. Then one day, an interstate pastor and his wife stayed at my home, she notes a around 30 Psalms I had rewritten left on a coffee table. She began reading them and liked what she read. When she found that I had written them she asked for copies of all I had done, then took them back home and started handing them around her congregation. They were popular, and she kept asking for more material.
In a short time I was asked to write articles, motivational verse, short stories of a Christian nature and other material. And that’s where this and other similar works come from. The way this book is structured is the result of personal notes that others liked, and just kept on expanding.
I trust the work is of help to you. Peter Collins

These four books in the series titled, “Success Revealed Through the Bible,” are unique in content as they have been designed to cater for both the Christian and Business communities. They contain Uplifting Scripture combined with like minded Editorial Content. But it doesn’t stop there as each subject also encompasses Business Quotes together with Sales Hints. Since sharing the content on Facebook, many preachers have informed me that they use the content of each subject as Outlines for their Church Sermons.
Because of my business and sales background, in which I have been fortunate to have managed, taught, trained, mentored and encouraged many individuals over a 50 year career, I had devised short handouts that incorporated Christian teachings with business and sales overtones. Slowly the concept grew and in these four publications there are over 200 Success Groupings. They may seem repetitive, but that too is done on purpose, as repetition encourages personal memorization of ideas, passages and some Bible Scriptures.
These book are not perfect, and were never meant to be, but as a collection of sales and business ideologies molded around Biblical Principles, they somehow work. And just like all of my other Christian writings, they are available to each reader for only $1.00 each volume.
