I've read many financial books, both secular and faith-based, and consider myself reasonably well-versed on money issues, both theological and financial. I bought this book on the advice of a speaker at a recent church conference. I'm glad I did. Although I have not finished reading it, Mr. Alcorn's book is several cuts above many others available in book stores. I believe I am reading what will eventually be considered a "classic" on this topic. It is well-researched, well-constructed, thought-provoking, challenging, and biblically sound. Mr. Alcorn is also refreshing in his willingness to express his reservations with what is his opinion when he is not 100% sure of biblical interpretation or instruction, alerting and allowing the reader latitude to evaluate his analysis.I heartily recommend this book to anyone who wants to live his or her life in a manner so as to walk the walk while on this earth and one day in the future hear the words "Well done, good and faithful servant..."Of less importance, I also like the design of the book, its font type and the paper on which it is printed. My eyes are not what they once were, and despite the relatively small font, I am having no problem reading the book.
Absolutely rocked my world. There is definitely no better book on the topic of money/possessions than this one. It is the best book I've ever read period and I can't wait to re-read it over and over as a reminder until I die. Thank you Mr. Alcorn.
This is the most compelling, thought-provoking and challenging book I've ever read other than the Bible. I'd love to see every Christian in the US read it. God could then use us to change the world, one soul at a time.
