Product Review: What the Bible Says About Money PowerPoint
August 8, 2015
Delaware County, PA
This PowerPoint presentation provides a biblical perspective on money management. It highlights key Scriptures revolving around proper/improper stewardship, using money for the Glory of God, and the dangers or pitfalls for those who love money. It also identifies why giving is an important aspect of worship and the manifold blessings that God bestows for those who freely give. When viewed as a slideshow, the PowerPoint presentation provides a menu to access specific topics relating to the topic of money. There are a 105 slides in total.
There are three biblical components related to worship that are marginally addressed: first-fruits, tithing, and seed offerings. These elements of worship are only mentioned within Scriptures content of the PowerPoint but are not expanded upon. Unfortunately, this presentation does not address the use of these components from Old or New Testaments viewpoints. It also does not define these components our explained how these components were used to glorify God or the building of His kingdom. I believe that these three biblical components are crucial to money management and are misunderstood by many.
I appreciate the ease of navigation to quickly access specific topics related to money. However, I am a bit disappointed that the three biblical components related to worship are only mentioned and not expounded upon. While I would recommend the PowerPoint to others, I would not consider this a complete study on money management from a theological standpoint. This presentation would be ideal for Sunday School or Bible Study.
I recently went through a copy of What the Bible Says About Money Power Point study from Rose Publishing. This is a very well laid out study of the topic of money. Both the visual presentation and the actual content is excellent. The six headings (Introduction, For the Glory of God, Blessings from God, The Danger of Money, Why Give? and How to Honor God with Money) give a great high level overview of the topic as a whole. Rose has pulled together virtually ever single passage in the Bible that deals with money, wealth, riches, poverty, warnings and giving and organized it into this great teaching and preaching resource.
This Power Point could be used in the home to give children a great overview and detailed understanding of the proper thinking and use of money. It would also work great in a Sunday School setting for teenagers or adults. For some churches, all or parts of this Power Point could be used during a sermon on money. It's definitely a topical approach, but a very well done one at that.
One of the highlights for me were the "Don't" and "Do" charts on slides 54-60. These give a great rundown on how not to think of and use money and how to think and use money Biblically. I also loved the charting of the Proverbs that speak to the topic of money on slides 84-87.
Overall, I would highly recommend this resource to anyone that is studying the topic of money for the first time or anyone who is preparing to lead or teach a group of Christians through the topic either within a small group or in a local church.
Rose Publishing has provided me with an advanced reader copy.
