Money, Possessions, and Eternity--Revised and Updated
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.
