Product Description

John Cortines and Gregory Baumer met as Harvard MBA candidates in a men's Bible study and stopped asking "How much should I give?" and started asking "How much do I need to keep?" With their top-notch education and rising careers, Cortines and Baumer were guaranteed comfort and security for the rest of their lives. However, when their plans for saving and spending collided with God's purposes for extravagant generosity, they were each compelled to make a life-changing decision that challenges the values held by mainstream America and many Christian commentators. Cortines and Baumer show not only how radically give, but explain how to do so responsibly.

Dive into the story and get equipped with the practical tools to-

  • Easily set budgets for spending
  • Wisely steward your money
  • Prepare and save for your future-home ownership, retirement, higher education, etc...
  • Know what the Bible says about money, tithing, and faith
  • Discern when to give and when not to giveFrom the parables of the Rich Young Ruler to the Widow's Mite, the Bible shows us that how we manage our money is critical to our relationship with God. God and Money uses these parables and more to teach you to save, spend, and steward your money in a biblical way by planting God's purposes at the heart of your practices.

      Recently, I read God and Money, published by Rose Publishing. The authors conclude that tithing is not required of us because we live under grace; but their rationale will surprise you. It sure surprised me. I have come to think that this concept of grace has been taken to the extreme and has resulted in people becoming cheap and stingy with their money; inoculating them against the genuine needs around them, as if all that is required is that you give cheerfully, not generously.

      I enjoyed that the authors of this book delved into old testament history to show us how the ancient patriarchs practiced their giving, as well as into the new testament to tell us what Jesus and Paul had to say about it. One important fact revealed by the authors is that the tithe ended up not just being 10% of their income, but actually amounted to about 23 %.There were three kinds of tithes that were required: the Levitical tithe, given every year for the support of the temple; the Festival tithe which was used to ensure each Israelite could participate in the Feast of Tabernacles; and the Charity tithe which was 10% given in years 3 and 6 (budgeted annually at 3%) of Israels yearly social cycle for the benefit of the orphans, widows and foreigners.

      Although I have been familiar with the concept of living within your means and trying to live debt-free through ministries like Dave Ramseys, this book expanded my vision of good stewardship and the privilege God has given us to live with an open hand and not a closed fist. The authors helped me to understand that the concept of stewardship goes beyond how much to give of our God-given time, talent, and treasure. They enlarged my vision to think in terms of how much to keep, to think about giving away the rest; the importance of discerning true need and of investing in worthy causes that will honor God. It also means that we are responsible to GOD for ensuring we earn our living honestly, distribute and manage the resources He has entrusted to us FOR HIS purpose. Ensuring that our spending, saving, and giving should be well-planned and intentional is also part of honoring and worshipping our God.

      Acknowledging that EVERYTHING we have belongs to God, frees us to GIVE generously. The plan outlined in this book makes it simple to put these principles into practice. Take your after-tax income and put it into three buckets: 1) spending (for your familys current needs); 2) savings (investing in the future), and 3) serving (investing in eternity).

      Every Christian should read this book as part of their spiritual growth. The authors have graciously provided a free copy of the God and Money Study Guide and a list of over 2000 bible verses dealing with money on their website for anyone interested in gaining in-depth knowledge of this material. These resources are intended for individual or small group study. I challenge you to get a copy of this book and a copy of the study guide. Expand your vision and share it with friends!

      What is money? How can more of it be gotten? The authors of the book God and Money, both Harvard MBAs, have investigated, with the dispassionate eyes of scholars of such matters, the question of money, but from, however, a longitudinal study of this subject in the Bible. The result is a passionate answer to the question, phrased in Schaefferian fashion, of How shall we then give? I found this volume to be very comprehensive, and, in fact, holistic, since it did not look only at proportional giving and its blessings, but at the whole of the wealth of a Christian believer, including spending, and the timing of spending on essentials, on entertainment, travel, the paying down of loans, the leaving of inheritances, the aid one might provide to children, and so on. It also dealt with bang for the buck issues in giving to missions and other worthy causes. Like others, the authors deal,also, with the question of putting a cap on income. A guilt-free treatment of the subject: enjoy!

      God and Money by Cortines and Baumer is the most personally convicting book I have read, and I loved every word of it! Ive always been an active member in my church, but I convinced myself that giving regularly is not necessary because I give so much of my time instead. Why not leave tithing to the older church members who are financially stable? I have student loans to pay off and a house to buy. I promised God that Id start giving more when I have more to give! God and Money opened my eyes and challenged me to stop waiting until I have more and make it work now. Chapter 5 helped me to diagnose my money mindset as a Saver and offered ways to change my thinking in order to live as a Servant. God and Money will really challenge some Christians to dive in and evaluate the relationship they have with Him where finances are concerned. Not everyone will like it, but it is a subject that needs to be discussed more openly. In the end, it all belongs to Him!
