DeVon Franklin, New York Times bestselling author of The Wait and prominent Hollywood producer, reveals that secular and spiritual success are not opposites. To have one, you need the other.
Are you tired of living a life paralyzed by fear? Are you anxious to break free of the “beware mentality” that has kept generations of well-meaning people living beneath the fullness of their calling?
You’re unfulfilled because you’ve been convinced that you would lose your faith if you pursued the secular ambitions God has put in your heart. However, until you pursue those ambitions you will miss out on the fullness of God and the success you were created to have.
For too long there’s been a line drawn between the spiritual and the secular, and we have been conditioned to believe that if we cross this line in either direction, we will have gone too far. It’s time to break down this barrier so you are free to go further than any believer has gone before.
The Hollywood Commandments combines spiritual teachings with secular strategies to help you achieve unprecedented success and live the life you were destined to live.

The Hollywood Commandments is not only an exemplary story of DeVon Franklin’s journey towards his purpose leading to his success in Hollywood, but it is also a practical and relatable literary work that gives valuable advice and principles on how the reader can integrate their spiritual foundation into their professional life.
As someone who has had a strong spiritual foundation that originated in my church upbringing as a child, many of the points he made in the book resonated with me. I am on the climb in my career in Corporate America. Although, one may not choose theological path that may be expected from the church’s congregation, DeVon informs the reader that it’s not a condemnation to desire secular success. In fact, DeVon is adamant that much of his success has been attributed to what he learned throughout his career in Hollywood.
This book takes you on a journey on levels of spirituality, professionalism, personal will, and practicality. The principles shared in this story are transferable in all realms of life. For me, this book is life-changing and lets me know that I can live my truth spiritually and cohesively work hard to thrive in my career. Thank you for the truth.
