But this book is *not* only about money. Alcorn clarifies that money should be seen through the lens of eternity. Money is God's resource, given to us to use for His purposes as His stewards.
So if you believe that the gospel applies to how you handle money, then His disciples should apply the gospel to their use of money. God will ask us to account for how we used or misused it.
Jesus is central to this book. It's why this book is only for the serious Christian. Of course, others may read it and think about and agree or disagree with it. But I challenge you to put the principles Alcorn shares into practice. They will make a difference to your walk with Jesus.
This is one of those books where you should not expect to agree with Alcorn. Allow yourself a lot of time with this book. Alcorn's questions are searching and penetrating. Underlining and commenting on these pages has helped me immensely.I keep it as a reference volume on what the BIble says about money as a quick "go-to" guide.
Is this book "entertaining"? No.
Is this book "easy"? No.
Is it important? Absolutely.
It is meat in an age where instant gratification is the norm. This is solid food, for those who really want to follow Jesus.
This is a most fantastic book in what it shares about a biblical approach to money and Christian financial management. I wish I had read this book years ago.
I'm 59 pages into the nearly 500 page book. I have already had so many ah-ha moments that I've lost track of all of the insights I've gleaned from this book so far.
I don't agree 100% with everything Alcorn says, and I don't worry about that. I never do completely agree with any writer.
Alcorn says in the forward to his book, "There is something in this book to offend everyone. Some of it offends me--and I wrote it. Please understand that it is not my intention to insult or irritate anyone. Any offenses are simply the by-product of trying to be faithful to the principles of Scripture--which have an annoying tendency to take issue with the way we prefer to think and live. I have undoubtedly erred in some of my conclusions. I invite you to examine carefully the hundreds of passages cited, searching the Scripture like the Bereans, to see whether these words are true. . . To the degree that my words do not match up to Scripture, they are worthless. To the degree that they stand up under the scrutiny of God's Word, they should be taken seriously."
When I read these words, I knew I was in for an exciting read about what the Bible has to say about how we handle our money and material possessions.
Many of us have struggled deeply with our finances. I think this is a "must read" book for all of us who want to use our money more wisely to impact this kingdom and the next.Read more ›
