Product Description

It's time to rethink our perspectives on money and possessions. In this thoroughly researched and extensively updated classic, Randy Alcorn shows us how to view them accurately---as God's provision for our good, the good of others, and his glory.

Alcorn presents a biblical and comprehensive view of money and possessions, including the following:

  • Why is money so important to God?
  • Is prosperity theology right or wrong?
  • How can we be liberated from materialism?
  • What should we do about debt?
  • How much does God want us to give?
  • How can we best help the poor and reach the lost?
  • What about gambling? investing? insurance? saving? retirement? inheritance?
  • How can we leave our children a true heritage?
  • How can we use money in ways that God rewards?
This practical and refreshing theology of money contains topical and Scripture indexes, a study guide, and five helpful appendices.

Publisher's Description

What does the Bible really say about money? This completely revised and updated version of the classic best-seller provides a Christian perspective about money and material possessions based on the author's painstaking study of the Bible. Randy Alcorn uses the Scriptures to approach this often touchy subject head-on. Thought-provoking arguments challenge readers to rethink their attitudes and use their God-given resources in ways that will have an eternal impact. Alcorn deals straightforwardly with issues of materialism, stewardship, prosperity theology, debt, and more. An excellent choice for group study as well as individual financial guidance. Includes a study guide and appendix with additional resources.

    My curiosity about this book was piqued when an older gentleman in our church said it was the BEST book he had ever read on finances. He has an extensive library and has worked in Christian ministries for years.

    I have not been disappointed. The book is extensive, covering many topics, including the following: materialism, eternal rewards, ministry finances, borrowing, investing, and inheritance.

    Does the author strongly urge tithing regularly, giving generously, living sacrificially? Yes, and he backs everything up with Scripture. Can it be convicting? Yes, but sometimes those of us in the West need to be awakened to additional ways we can serve God's kingdom. Will you agree with him on everything? Probably not, but this book will give you much to prayfully consider.

    Additionally, Alcorn shares a bit of his personal journey on the subject of finances, and he seems well qualified to speak on the topic. His humility shines through many times.

    I am planning to have all four of our children read this book in order to graduate home school, and I wish I could buy one for everyone I know.

    I feel that the product or book was great. The price was reasonable but the delivery time from order to receiving the book was way to long.

    I teach at a Bible College and this was my students reading assignment. I have heard nothing but good reports concerning the information and revelation expressed by the author. I found it very informative too.

    The best book I have ever read on the subject. It makes you think about money and posessions in an entirely new way. It really helps you understand the importance of tithing.

    I bought this book for a Christian Finance Homeschool course for my daughter, planning on doing the book as a family. 6 chapters are all we could take! The contradictions and obvious bias Mr. Alcorn has against wealth was hard to take---add to that his obsession with obsessing about money! What do I mean by that?---well, in the first few chapters he establishes that materialism and asceticism can both cause one to be obsessed with money or lack of. But as the chapters go on, he never establishes the middle ground. Even if you are monetarily successful, he still advocates shopping at second hand thrift stores and buying used. Why? This seems obsessive and overly focused on money and saving a few pennies to me. Honestly, I don't think Mr. Alcorn has every worked for commission or in retail---otherwise he wouldn't advocate being totally cheap about purchases and living. I agree with being generous with giving if you are successful, but there is SO much to this book that seems I can't agree with that we will no longer be using this for a Finance curriculum for our daughter---SHE was very offended at much she read.
