Publisher's Description

"A unique approach to understanding how you innately relate to handling money. A fascinating concept!"

– Gary Chapman, author of The 5 Love Languages

True financial well-being involves more than getting out of debt and accumulating wealth. It’s about discovering how you’re wired by God, and how that wiring influences the way you think about, feel toward, and handle money.

Discovering your money type – whether you are an Abraham (hospitality), an Isaac (discipline), a Jacob (beauty), a Joseph (connection), a Moses (endurance), an Aaron (humility), or a David (leadership) – will bring greater self-awareness, reduce internal financial tension, help you resolve financial conflict with others, and help you grow financially from a faith-based perspective. As you walk with Pastor Brown through the Scriptures you’ll find holistic financial pathways that lead you to a place of increased awareness and confidence related to money.

In The Seven Money Types, Pastor Tommy Brown leads you on a journey of personal discovery as he reveals the seven money types found in Scripture, helps you identify the type that best fits you by means of a 35-question assessment, and coaches you on understanding, affirming, developing, and enjoying your unique approach to money.

Editorial Reviews

Have you ever wondered why you are wired the way you are when it comes to your finances? Why can’t you save? Why do you spend so much? Why are you so fearful of anything financially related? Why do you give so much that it truly hurts your bank account? Why are you so miserly? It is in seeking to understand the why that you can change for the better. This book will help you deeply examine your God-given money type. Once you understand your type you can find financial peace.
The Seven Money Types is not a book on how to manage money. Rather, it is a unique approach to understanding how you innately relate to handling money. You will likely find yourself in one of these seven types. It reveals the benefits and pitfalls of each type. A careful reading will help you make the most of who you are and better understand others who are wired differently. A fascinating concept.
Tommy Brown has given us a unique perspective on how God has shaped us to steward resources. As you study the journeys of these seven biblical characters, your own financial path will become clearer.
Tommy is a personal friend and one of the most knowledgeable persons I know in his field of expertise. Everyone who reads this book will gain great personal benefit.
To know Tommy Brown is to know a man of wisdom and courage. His wisdom is evident on every page of this book; his courage is reflected in his eagerness to truly live the words of the ancient sage who taught, “Who is wise? He who learns from everyone.” Many books offer little or nothing. Other books are moving and heartwarming. But this book by Tommy Brown is in a rare category: it has the power to actually transform your life for the better. Be prepared: the road you are on will never be the same after reading (and studying) this down-to-earth spiritual masterpiece.
Tommy Brown’s financial insight and passion for teaching others about financial stewardship is undeniable! In his book The Seven Money Types, he teaches financial wellness strategies, but more than that, he teaches us how to understand the heart, or good intentions, behind our and our loved ones’ financial decisions. This is the money book I recommend to my counseling clients!
With compassion, Scriptural insights and pertinent examples from his pastoral and professional experience, Tommy Brown makes the convincing case that to align the ways we think and feel about money with how God designed us leads to empowerment---to do good in the world and nurture relationships, including with those who, by God’s design, may view money differently. He teaches us to be gentle with ourselves and reminds us that financial well-being is not based on the amount of money we have in the bank but on the “why” that drives our decisions, hopes, dreams, and partnerships.
Using seven biblical money types as examples of financial stewardship, Tommy Brown presents a most creative teaching on the ways each of us can use well the money we are entrusted with. You will enjoy and be stimulated by this book!
The Seven Money Types does for finances what Gary Chapman’s The Five Love Languages does for personal relationships. If you want a greater sense of clarity surrounding why you relate to money the way you do, look no further than this book. Not only will The Seven Money Types give you a greater sense of self-understanding, it will also give you a deeper appreciation for the unique way God has wired each one of us. Reading this book and realizing I am a “Jacob type” has changed everything for me, financially speaking. I encourage you to read this book. You won’t be sorry you did.
Tommy Brown’s The Seven Money Types is an insightful analysis of how people respond to money and wealth. I have read many books on the topic, and I manage money professionally. Brown’s discovery of the wealth attributes of key biblical figures and the related shadow sides should appeal to sophisticated asset managers and individual savers alike. It is definitely worth reading.
A fresh, liberating perspective on how Christians can think about faith and finances. Moving beyond tired dichotomies, Brown points us toward a healthy relationship with money and possessions. I highly recommend The Seven Money Types.
Through a creative use of biblical archetypes, Brown helps us to see that our relationship to money is about more than spending and saving. Our relationship to money mirrors our relationships with God and with one another. This book offers practical suggestions, but more than that, opens the reader to understand how handling money is a spiritual practice.

    The book I have is a paperback. The cover design is great - simple but really effective. I love the contemporary feel it has. The book opens to several pages of impressive recommendations for the book from people such as Gary Chapman. Following the contents there are some acknowledgement pages, then the introduction and your into Chapter One. I was keen to get the the grit of this and he wastes no time taking the reader there. With a title implying we have types, I think it's great not to keep the reader waiting to the end to do the test themselves. So after some background information on how he got to this you get right into it at page 32-36 completing the tests and figuring out which ones you fit into.

    Tommy tells how seven of the main individuals through the Bible all showcase and highlight unique aspects of God's image. In this case particularly related to how you deal with money. The types are as follows:

    Abraham offers God's hospitality

    Isaac demonstrates God's discipline

    Jacob reflects God's beauty

    Joseph depicts God's connection.

    Moses manifests God's endurance.

    Aaron embodies God's humility

    David influences with God's leadership.

    I did the test myself and am pretty happy with the results that came back - I feel they are correct and really helpful. Each chapter following the test goes into further detail on each money 'type' starting with Abraham. In each chapter he summarizes the basic belief of that type, their core characteristics, their shadow side (meaning areas to watch out for), how to grow, a blessing and scriptures and finally questions for Abraham types to consider. The questions really are good to help solidify what has just been read and make you think how you can apply it to your own life. Following that the other types are covered, each having a chapter of it's own.

    There is also a chart included in the back (p213) which is a really handy overview of the 7 types too. Also at the end are some prompts for group discussion. This book would be fun to do in a group too I imagine.

    Easy to read, really interesting to relate to. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it. It provides understanding and can without doubt help in relationships where couples are different types and always clashing.

    Please note that I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my review, however this review is entirely my own.

    This book has been so helpful to me in understanding how I spend money naturally and how I want to spend it in the future. It also showed me the personality traits I want to encourage in myself. The real-life examples help to make the theory come to life, and demonstrate that it is possible to use your assets and your personality together to make Gods love real to those around you. This is a must-read for everyone!
