Contrary to popular belief, Jesus does not expect us to forsake our treasure. However, he does speak volumes about where our treasure is to be stored. In The Treasure Principle Randy Alcorn teaches us how to obey Jesus by setting aside the fleeting treasures of earth in order that we can store up eternal treasure in heaven. As millions of readers have already found, The Treasure Principle is a small book that has the potential to produce big change in our lives.
In this first book in the new LifeChange series, bestselling author Randy Alcorn introduces readers to a revolution in material freedom and radical generosity that will change lives around the world. Ninety-five percent of Christians have never come to terms with a biblical perspective on their material possessions, Alcorn writes. God has entrusted His wealth to us and called upon us to manage and invest His money. This is in everyone's best interests, including our own. When Jesus told His followers to "lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven," he intended that they discover an astounding secret: how joyful giving brings God maximum glory and his children maximum pleasure.
Randy Alcorn is the founder and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries.

Randy and his wife, Nanci, live in Gresham, Oregon, and have two grown daughters, Karina and Angela.
