mom read to meLawrenceville, GAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent!February 2, 2014mom read to meLawrenceville, GAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My 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.

Susie Elliott4 Stars Out Of 5September 3, 2010Susie ElliottI 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.

katiebIdahoAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5June 2, 2010katiebIdahoAge: 35-44Gender: femaleI 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.
