Product Description

Jesus' Terrible Financial Advice turns even conventional Christian wisdom on its head. While it answers many of the practical questions we have-like does Jesus want me to be rich or poor? Should I give to everybody who asks? Is it wrong to save?-it goes beyond these concerns. It asks bigger questions, gives bolder answers, and offers a more comprehensive view of stewardship. Jesus' advice may seem terrible to some, but it leads to what money can never buy: peace, joy, and purpose.

Publisher's Description

"Jesus’ advice ruined what I planned to write."

It was the recipe for a great book. John and his wife—both financial experts—had cut their income by 80% to pursue more meaningful lives. Within six years they had two kids, were debt-free, went on several vacations, and doubled their net worth. John was ready to share the biblical principles that made this possible. 

But he couldn’t. After reviewing Scripture’s teaching on money—over 1,300 verses—he realized he had missed something big. 

Jesus’ Terrible Financial Advice turns even conventional Christian wisdom on its head. While it answers many of the practical questions we have—like does Jesus want me to be rich or poor? Should I give to everybody who asks? Is it wrong to save?—it goes beyond these concerns. It asks bigger questions, gives bolder answers, and offers a more comprehensive view of stewardship. Follow Jesus’ "terrible" (shocking, otherworldly) financial advice, and you’ll have what money can’t buy: purpose.
