Pastor Chad Hovind has produced the one resource that finally sets the record straight by tracing capitalism back to its source: the inspired Word of God. Those who accuse capitalism of favoring the rich and privileged while exploiting everyone else are gaining a larger hearing. Sadly, the critics overlook the established fact that American capitalism has built a society that ensures liberty and advances prosperity and opportunity.
The economic system that propelled the most respected nation in history is under attack like never before. Even Christians, who have seen America's capitalistic system make it possible for donors to fund mission work and ministries that are not duplicated anywhere else in the world are being misled. A left-leaning critique of our economic system has taken hold with growing multitudes of uninformed Christians. Godonomics will set the record straight, and just in time. Paperback.

"Godonomics is an incredible comparison of biblical economics and the culture. A real eye-opener."
Josh McDowell, coauthor of Undaunted and The Unshakable Truth
Gods Solution to Every Financial Crisis
Those who fail to learn from history may not get a chance to repeat it. Some economists have said the years of robust economic growth and expanding opportunity are gone for good. But are they reading the right text?
Godonomics explores the core biblical teachings that provide the only practical, dependable solution to economic uncertainty. And now this innovative approach is enhanced by a new guide to help parents mentor their children from grade school to young adulthood. Every season of parenting gives you a new opportunity to equip your children with the vision and tools they need to lay the foundation for financial success.
By following Scriptures guidelines we can ensure the financial well-being of our familiesno matter what might happen on the national or global stage. Let Godonomics show you why a strong work ethic, saving over borrowing, generous giving, and the reduction of entitlements combine to form the only path to economic stability and financial health.

He is creator of and contributor to the Fast Track Bible video series, as well as the Godonomics, Moneywise, and Living Proof DVD series. Hovind speaks frequently at conferences and events sponsored by marketplace ministries. He holds degrees in communication and pastoral ministries from Moody Bible Institute.

"Chad Hovind reveals how the Bible supports free enterprise and entrepreneurship. Youll laugh and learn as he weaves together biblical history, philosophy, and a passion for business with references to Adam Smith, C. S. Lewis, Milton Friedman, and even Steve Martin."
Glenn Beck, host of The Glenn Beck Program, author of Cowards: What Politicians, Radicals, and the Media Refuse to Say
"Godonomics reveals an approach to money and our country that is common sense, not just another attempt to politicize the gospel.

Jerry Robinson, economist, author of Bankruptcy of Our Nation, radio host of Follow the Money (FTM)
PstrMNebraskaAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5God's design for economy is effectiveDecember 3, 2013PstrMNebraskaAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Godonomics by Chad Hovind is more than just another book about economics. It does a good job of walking the reader through the Biblical principles of God's design for economic systems. This book takes the time to explain some of the most common economic systems such as Socialism/Communism and shows why they will not work from a biblical and logical perspective. This book does not make economics a "political" issue and is not written in a way that bashes one side of the aisle. Instead, it is written clearly and matter-of-factly about why God's design for our economy is far superior than any other system that is being followed today. Truly an encouraging book about where our country could be as well as where we as individuals can be if we follow's God's economic system. I received this book for free from blogging for books for this review.
AlandWyndaMinot, NDAge: Under 18Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5What does the Bible say about the economy?October 9, 2013AlandWyndaMinot, NDAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4When I think of economics, my first thoughts are to a college professor who taught this subject in a very mono-tone voice and almost put me to sleep on a regular basis. However, given the current state of the U.S. economy, I wanted to read this book to obtain a better understanding of the bigger picture, the potential biblical solution to the financial crisis our nation is in, as well as glean some principles I may be able to apply to my own life.
This is not a book that one is likely to read through in one easy sitting. If you are unfamiliar with different economic concepts and historical figures, there may be a slight learning curve. In some ways, one may even liken Godonomics to a textbook. Don't get me wrong, there is much good information in the book - some of which it would have been nice for the author to expound upon in greater detail. However, if you are looking for a â€˜light, easy-to-read' Christian book, this is not it.
The author will help you understand key economic concepts and provide a historical perspective that sheds some light as to how the United States got into its current situation. It did not happen overnight and it will not be solved overnight, and there have been both direct and indirect consequences as a result of policies that have been enacted. The book also gives some practical tips that we can apply to our own financial situations. Unfortunately, I don't see many politicians read the book and looking for God's guidance.

AngelAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5September 26, 2013AngelAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have been truly enjoying the book Godonomics this week. This book spells out what the Bible says about economics, as well as how our current economy actually works, and how, historically,we got to the point we are at. Its packed full of facts, but is written in an easy to read way.
I have been doing a lot or pre-reading of economic books lately, looking for resources to use as part of our homeschooling curriculum. Most are dry and hard to follow, but this book is definitely a keeper!
I recommend this book to all Americans. Many voters do not understand economics, or history, yet have very strong opinions on how things should be run. Godonomics gives the truth behind the economy really works, and spells out how we can fix the mess our country (and many of us individually) are in.

Steven5 Stars Out Of 5GodonomicsJuly 3, 2013StevenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It is difficult to turn on the television today and not hear someone's take on the sad state of the American economy. Words such as debt, recession, bailout, investments, capitalism, and economic bubble are part of the everyday discussion. There is a mad rush today between our major political parties to see who will rescue the nation from an anemic, failing, and ever-shrinking economy. In his new book, "Godonomics; How to Save Our Country and Protect Your Wallet Through Biblical Principles for Finance" pastor Chad Hovind asserts that neither the economic policies of the elephant and donkey will correct the present economic tailspin. Instead, it will be the Lamb's policies and principles that offer the best chance of recovery. Hovind defines Godonomics as "God's teaching and wisdom in the realm of finances and economics". The structure of the book is unique. Hovind poses hypothetical questions that God would ask past and current economic thinkers and political leaders who have negatively impacted the nation's economy. Such people include john Maynard Keynes, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Alan Greenspan, Karl Marx, and the Internal Revenue Service.
Through his book, Hovind keeps the difference between capitalism; the free exchange of privately owned good and services and socialism; state control and state ownership of industry ad property before the reader's eye. He begins with the Pilgrims and what would become the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Their earliest form of governance was, at its heart, a form of socialism where the goods and services of the individual are pooled together and redistributed to the entire colony. This system failed quickly and William Bradford searched the Bible for answers. He found the foundational principles that would become the blueprint for a new economic system, then and now. He understood that property rights, incentive, and freedom were critical to economic success. Throughout the book, Hovind demonstrates the erosion of these three. Hovind states, "a strong economy is fueled by production, and producing leads to profit. Profit covers our expenses and builds savings. Out of savings we spend, invest, and give to others". The questions that Hovind believes that God would ask deal with the areas that work against his idea of a strong economy. The areas of concern involve work, profit, spending, budgeting, unintended consequences, liberty, money supply, greed, rule of law, and voluntary giving. The author does an excellent job of placing the beliefs of these leaders alongside the Bible to demonstrate the wisdom and prudence of considering God's position on financial matters.
I really enjoyed this book. The most profound and relevant chapter in my opinion is the questions that God would ask President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. By breaking down the reasons for and the method of payment for FDR's New Deal, Hovind draws a striking and ominous resemblance to President Barack Obama's Troubled Asset Relief Program (stimulus packages). This chapter is worth the price of the book. Hovind's treatment of the subject is biblical, objective, and thought-provoking. Godonomics is well-researched and timely. Godonomics is a true clarion call to consider the biblical vantage point of financial matters. An outstanding work. I highly recommend it.
