Format: Paperback
For a basic overview this book is okay. It's brief, covers the main issues and the reader can take what they need and go on to the next step. However it falls short of being practical for the 58% of Americans whose household income is under $60k. The budget breakdown by % is inadequate. Effective budgeting deals with actual costs in all categories, not a % of income.

Financial planners can show us comprehensively what needs to be done. But when real numbers are applied, many families, middle class and below, will find themselves short on income.

Also, a few passages from the Bible were quoted out of context and do not actually teach the message as the author used it. The best financial material I've seen is from Dave Ramsey.

Format: Paperback
It isn't very often that you find any books on financial planning and debt reduction that approach the process from a Biblical perspective. I think one of the reasons may be that so many Christians think that money is evil and therefore don't want to have any honest discussions about it.

There's a problem with this though. Money is just as much a part of life as anything else. Just like a lot of other things, it's not intrinsically good or evil on its own. It's what we do with it that makes it this way. Christians, just like everyone else, often have money problems, and they need to learn how to manage their money properly. Not only are we to be good stewards, we are to use our money to promote the kingdom of God.

Understanding this is how this book will help you. It relies on the wisdom of Solomon, the wisest and richest king who ever lived. Solomon knew plenty about having it all, and he also knew all about the pitfalls of having it all. He wrote about it in the book of Ecclesiastes.

Womack takes this scripture and others and shows you how to apply this wisdom to your life and your finances. You learn how to formulate a practical plan that will not only help you pay your bills and plan your future, but it will also learn how to make the right choices and get out from underneath the stress of managing your finances.

Although this book won't tell you everything you need to know about managing your finances, it is a good primer for getting started. It is also the first place that Christians need to start. It will help you put your finances in perspective. This book will put you on the path to financial sanity.

Format: Paperback
have read several financial planning books. I was very impressed with Greg Womack's approach to financial planning. I am a Christian and was amazed by the scripture Greg used and how he applied the scripture to today's world. It always amazes me how the teachings of thousands of years ago still apply today. Most of the financial books say the same thing; they all have 7-9 steps that one must do in order to secure financial freedom. Greg does differ on some of the points, such as, whether you should pay off your house before you start saving for retirement.

After reading several financial books, I really thought I would be bored with reading this one. However, I was not bored because of the new twist Greg uses by applying the wisdom of King Solomon to today's issues.

It may scare those looking for a quick fix to their financial problems. Greg emphasizes giving as one of the basis to a solid financial plan. I have a friend who read the book and is not a Christian. He did not enjoy the book as much as I did, because of that fact. However, I believe he worries about money more than I do because of the faith I have in my belief as a Christian. I have personally seen the power of giving work for me and others.

I highly recommend the book.
