About the Book

The well-known American Baptist clergyman, orator, philanthropist, lawyer, and author Russell Conwell explains how prosperity is a spiritual notion and the outcome of one's spiritual beliefs in the current book, Acres of Diamonds. This book demonstrates where to seek to find a fortune. Conwell created opportunities for countless millions of people because he had the belief that "all good things are achievable." Acres of Diamonds is a reflection of his fundamental conviction that every one of us is here on Earth primarily to be of service to others. Conwell was a preacher who founded two hospitals where no one has ever turned away due to financial hardship, as well as Temple University. He was a well-known professor as well.
The main plot concerns a Persian farmer who, ironically, lost a sizable amount of money while searching for a diamond mine when, in fact, his farmland—which he had sold to pay for his search—actually contained acres of diamonds. Conwell provides several further instances of tales centered around commodities like gold, oil, etc. Remember that the grass isn't always greener on the other side and don't dismiss your current situation, knowledge, and connections too fast. Despite some rambling, it's still a fantastic narrative with a timeless moral.

About Author

Russell H. Conwell

Russell Herman Conwell was an American Baptist clergyman, orator, philanthropist, novelist, lawyer, and writer who lived from February 15, 1843, to December 6, 1925. His most notable accomplishments include founding and serving as the first president of Temple University in Philadelphia, serving as the pastor of The Baptist Temple, and giving the motivational speech "Acres of Diamonds." In South Worthington, Massachusetts, he was born. Before earning his Yale degree in 1862, he enrolled in the Union Army for the American Civil War. Son of Massachusetts farmers, he left home to enroll at Yale University and then Wilbraham Wesleyan Academy. He returned to the battlefield during the "Gum Swamp" mission to rescue the remains of two of his fallen comrades. Later, he deliberately attracted enemy fire into his position, which led to his being shot in the shoulder, in order to gain a tactical advantage. The bravery shown by his devoted aide John H. Ring helped the atheist Conwell turn to Christianity while he was healing from this injury. After receiving his Baptist ministry ordination in 1880, he assumed leadership of a church in Lexington, Massachusetts. He wrote ten volumes in total, including the histories of James A. Garfield, Rutherford B. Hayes, and Ulysses S. Grant's presidential campaigns.
