This book was suggested to me by a friend with his highest recommendation and it lived up to my expectations. While on the surface the book may seem to be about finances and money, it is so much more than that. Although, even at the level of money, it is still a very valuable read for those wanting to put their finances in order. For, according to Crosson, to put your finances in order, you have to order your life and priorities as well.

The primary theme of Crosson's book is that we need to be deliberate about the training of our children (or our posterity) in a spiritual sense. Crosson's idea is that how we use and manage our money is one tool that we can use to train our children - and if that tool is misused, Crosson has seen the devastation and heartache that it can cause. As a financial planner, Crosson is sharing not simply financial strategies, but life lessons and plans that will help nurture godly young men and women more devoted to the cause of Christ because of his insight and knowledge being put into practice.

Crosson hits one issue very hard over and over again - how we use (or invest) our time. The ability to use money to buy time is such an attractive concept - but Crosson shows how good intentions in this area have turned to poor decisions - the use of some "time-saving" devices have enabled us to waste more time, or work longer hours, or even have been the cause of a disconnect between parents and children - Crosson warns against falling prey to the misuse of technology.

This is a must read for our culture. Without condemning wealth, the author beautifully directs your thoughts and planning to balance the quest for prosperity with the quest for investing in one's posterity. Wealth can be well utilized for the latter when accompanied by deliberate consideration of one's view of money and "what's important" in life. Great book!

I was surprised by this book and the author's direction, leading to a powerful conclusion of how faith is indeed intertwined with finances and disciplined spending...or, more accurately, savings and time management.
Mr. Crosson establishes a clear connection between our priorities as a family unit as opposed to making more and more money. This book is essential to any person, especially men, who wish to learn the responsibility of taking financial leadership along with Scriptural guidelines. Well written and an excellent reference tool.

I'm not sure what I was expecting from this book, but my expectations were far exceeded! This book focuses on ways that families can get away from the money trap that pervades our culture today. While some of the material is a little dated, overall the principles in the book are timeless and the reminders and recommendations very insightful. This is a great book!
