Publisher's Summary

Combining courage, faith, wisdom, and wonder into an inspiring tale of self-discovery, The Mount of Olives takes listeners for an emotional ride through the life of a boy who's search for better becomes a discovery of something extraordinary.

Michael Ivanov's masterpiece tells the story of Felix, the Roman boy who despite all opposition, yearns to gain a worldly treasure. His journey will lead him to riches far different - and far more satisfying - than he ever imagined.

Felix's quest teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity, and learning the golden principles strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.

Amazing book!

Personally I am not really into books that have a lot of preaching points and motivational bullet points, but reading mount of olives, I loved how the life principles weren’t just preached but modeled in the main characters life. It wasn’t an author trying to convince you to adopt his way of thinking, it was a testimony of a persons life and his journey to become a successful and happy human being. Really well written!
Really motivated me to apply all these principles that he learned throughout his journey.

Valuable Lessons Learned!

This Author has a great gift for being able to convey such valuable lessons and principles that are woven beautifully into an applicable story. The story was the perfect vehicle for transporting such great lessons. I take away principles that I will apply to my life. At a time when society is crying out for positive stories and experiences, this book provides that bridge toward living a better life!

Time well spent

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I was recommending to others before I even finished it. I have written down the 11 Declarations in my journal in an attempt to put to memory and put into action. Through this adoption of the declarations, I will create the same life lesson that Felix adopted into his life. Regardless of the outcome holistically, these declarations inherently are good and if more people lived by them our world would be a much more peaceful and different place! Perhaps heaven on earth!!
Thank you Mr. Ivanov for this wonderful story.
