Product Description

Conscientious and compassionate use of our money in a world where people spend $310 million on costumes for their pets and $5 billion on entertaining ringtones for their phones is not an easy task. The temptation to spend now and think later (or never!) is ever-present, but with good intentions and prayerful hearts, we can slow down and reflect on what we earn, how we spend it, who is affected by it, and who we can share it with.

Publisher's Description

Every Christian knows that we are called to love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. But what about our wallet? We are asked to open it every Sunday when the offering basket comes by and are told that giving is a way of being a "good steward," but what about spending money at a restaurant or grocery store? Best-selling author Mike Slaughter offers a comprehensive look at how Christians use their money in The Christian Wallet. Slaughter explores today's culture of consumerism and the impact of what we buy, asking difficult questions about morality and money.The Christian Wallet helps Christians grapple with important questions about stewardship: how we spend, how we live, how we save, how we give, and what it all means. Questions for individual or group study are also included with each chapter.

Editorial Reviews

The Christian Wallet goes beyond the usual concerns of skimpy offerings to delve deep into the hows and whys of spending, giving, and living in the twenty-first century. The result is a book that will engage your conscience, clarify your thinking, and change the way you think about just about everything. I’m already living differently as a result of reading this book. It packs a wallop through real-life stories, Mike’s personal revelations, and pointed connections with our impact on the earth’s limited resources.”
REBEKAH SIMON-PETER, church leadership consultant and author of The Jew Named Jesus and Green Church

“Mike Slaughter is one of the most gifted church leaders in America. Mike shows in this book that he understands not only the Christian wallet but most importantly the Christian heart. This book is a true gift to those of us who cherish Christian stewardship.”
J. CLIF CHRISTOPHER, President, Horizons Stewardship Co.

“Helpful resources, compelling research, and motivating stories make this a practical,thoughtprovoking, and often entertaining book.”
