More About the Author

Larry Burkett 1939~2003, Biographical Information

Widely Known For His Economic Warnings

In The Coming Economic Earthquake (Moody Press, Chicago, I11. * 1991), Burkett delineated growing federal deficits and the ever increasing use of debt by business and households out of control. Burkett points out those severe economic times will appear sometime shortly after the millennium unless current polices are changed. Burkett believed that Keynesian economic policies, with ideals for continuing federal deficits and the implicit preference for higher levels of credit and consumption, reduced saving, and a larger role for government in the economy are a means to disaster. As Burkett states in the book that as interest on the debt consumes a larger and larger portion of the yearly federal budget, and more money is borrowed each year to pay the interest on what was borrowed in previous years, there will be a temptation to "monetize" the debt at an increasing rate leading to a calamity not seen since the Great Depression. Burkett questioned whether or not elected leaders would take action in time to prevent fiscal chaos, and believed they would not. Larry gave no time-line for this prediction, other than a forewarning, foreshadowing current events of the time, with a little common sense added for good measure.

Early Years


Larry Burkett (March 3rd, 1939~July 4th, 2003) was an American author and leading Christian radio personality whose work focused on financial counseling from a Christian point of view. Larry was born in Winter Park, Florida on March 3, 1939, the fifth of eight children. After completing high school in Winter Garden, Florida, he entered the U.S. Air Force where he served with the Strategic Air Command. Upon completion of his military duties, he and his wife Judy returned to central Florida, where he worked in the space program at Cape Canaveral, Florida. He spent the next several years at the space center (NASA) in charge of an experiments test facility that served the Mercury-, Gemini-, and Apollo-manned space programs. While working at the space center, Larry earned degrees in marketing and finance at Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida. Larry left the space center in 1970 to become Vice President of an electronics manufacturing firm.

A Turning Point


In 1972 Larry put his trust and faith in Jesus Christ to guide his life, through the influence of his wife Judy and persistence of Dr. Peter Lord, Titusville, Florida--an event that had a profound effect. In 1973 he left the electronics company to join the staff of a nonprofit ministry, Campus Crusade for Christ at the request of Dr. Bill Bright, as a financial counselor. It was during this time that he began an intense study of what the Bible says about handling money, and he started teaching small groups around the country.

Ministry Is Formed


In 1976 Larry Burkett left the campus ministry to form Christian Financial Concepts, a 501C(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching the biblical principles of handling money. CFC was used as a vehicle to produce audio, video and written Work's for helping individuals, the local Church and main-line Denominations World-wide disseminate God's word with regard to Stewardship principles. In May of 1996, Southwest Baptist University conferred on Larry an Honorary Doctorate in Economics.

Radio Broadcasting


In 1979 Larry became a frequent radio guest of Dr. Jim Dobson founder of Focus On the Family with a widely listened to syndicated radio program. This exposure lead Moody Bible Institute Broadcasting division, Chicago, Illinois to help host, than start Larry's own radio ministry. Larry was a long time host of the four radio programs, "Money Matters," "How to Manage Your Money," "MoneyWatch," and "A Money Minute," which were carried on more than 1,100 radio outlets worldwide.

Larry's Publications


Larry published more than 70 books, sales of which now exceed 12 million copies and include several national best-sellers. Publications by Larry include What Ever Happened to the American Dream, The Coming Economic Earthquake, Your Finances in Changing Times, Business by the Book, The Financial Planning Workbook, Women Leaving the Workplace, Investing for the Future, Debt-Free Living, Great Is Thy Faithfulness, Hope When It Hurts, Nothing to Fear, in which he gave an update on his experiences with cancer and cancer treatments. Larry also wrote four novels: The Illuminati, The THOR Conspiracy, Solar Flare, and Kingdom Come (with T. Davis Bunn). Larry's final book before his death was The Burkett & Blue Definitive Guide to Securing Wealth to Last, and was written with Ron Blue and Jeremy L. White.

Larry also encouraged his eldest son, (Larry "Allen" Burkett, Jr.) as an author to write and produce thirty-two stewardship books and material "penned" under Larry's name. These Work's were for children, teen and parents under the banner: "Larry Burkett's "Money Matters for Kids", "Money Matters for Teens", "Larry Burkett's Stewardship for the Family ~ Time, Talents & Treasures". Some publications by Allen under Larry's name are Financial Parenting, What If I Owned Everything?, Money Planner for Kids, 50 Money Making Ideas for Kids, Teaching Your Child About Money Matters, Me Wonderfully Made, All About Money, Talent and Time Series, How Things Work Series, Pocket Change Series, Great Smoky Mountains Storybook Series, World's Easiest Pocket Guide Series,

His Legacy


Larry's memory is held dear by all those whose lives he touched: his family, his friends, and his ministry partners. He lived a life of Christian kindness and genuine humility. He was always extraordinarily generous. One of the central principles Larry taught is that we don't really own things; we are simply stewards and managers of what God has entrusted to us. In Larry's case, that included the ministry he founded.

Larry Burkett dedicated his life to teaching people biblical financial principles. He poured his life into serving the Lord through this ministry. He loved the ministry, he loved his staff which he believed was an extenuation of his own family... Caring for family first was foremost to laying a rock-solid foundation to ensuing a genuine love for the people who looked to the ministry for help in their time of need. Larry's compassion was so evident. His Radio Listeners could not see him, but could feel, his concern and even his tears for them.

Prior to his death, Larry founded the Larry Burkett Foundation®. The Larry Burkett Foundation® accepts donations to help needy individuals through and promoting organizations such as The National Christian Foundation®, Atlanta, Georgia and Helping Hands Ministries, Inc, Tallulah Falls, Georgia,.

I came back to write this review because I recently reviewed Dave Ramsey's audio CDs, and found myself constantly saying how much better I liked Larry Burkett's work. I have several of his books, and love them all. In my humble opinion, a lot more helpful than Dave Ramsey, who is good in his own way. Dave spends a lot of time entertaining you, though, and giving clever stories and other illustrations to his points, where as Larry gets to the point and tells me what I need to know. I don't have a lot of extra time for cute stories when I'm looking for a study or helps text, and I don't need a 12-minute talk to get the idea of "don't put all your eggs in one basket". Also, Dave tends to say things like "Save at least $1,000" -without saying how this could happen, while Larry starts where you are, and helps you see where your money's going, and where you can save it. Is your home over your budget? Are you paying too much for your car/transportation? Is it entertainment that's killing you? How would you know? What's a good amount to put toward housing? How about clothing? Food? Medical? These are the types of percentages Larry starts you out with-everybody has 100% of THEIR income-so you divide it up and see where your expense fits, and what's over "normal." Then YOU decide if it's worth that to you, and where to cut-or if you simply must have more income to survive. But it's only logical-everyone can see-that you can only spend 100% of your income. I also like that Larry starts out with adjusting the perspective on money to be biblical, and on giving-something Dave focuses on in his last lesson. This is a starting point to me. Another contrast is that Dave seems to often (jokingly) be insulting, mocking or harsh, where Larry is very professional and respectful at all times. Very practical and down to earth, absolutely applicable to anyone and very user-friendly. Excellent resource.

How To Manage Your Money does an excellent job presenting Biblical principles for asset management, not just money. It is designed for group study, such as a Sunday school class, but is also valuable for individual study and reference.

I'm surprised this book is not ranked higher. Before I read this I knew Larry Burkett from all of the times he has been talked about here on the Christian radio station in the Los Angeles and Orange County area since the 90's. As far as I know Larry Burkett is the foremost leader when it comes to Christian finance which little is preached or taught about especially given how much it's spoken about in the Bible especially the NT. This is a good book to have in everyone's library and is just as foundational and core an area such as devotions, prayer and so on.

This book is made for a christian bible study, but didn't help for personal use. Sure it has a great amount of questions to consider and bible verses to guide you in your answers, but no where does it give you ADVICE or steps on how to save or manage your money. It tells you ways to think about doing it, but nothing concrete to follow. I was very disappointed in this purchase.

Very good study for those who want a Godly grip on their finances. Stewardship is more than tithing. Burkett gives a good overview of biblical stewardship.
