Have you ever wondered why you are wired the way you are when it comes to your finances? Why cant 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 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 Browns 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 Gods 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 Chapmans 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 wont be sorry you did.
Tommy Browns 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. Browns 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.
