Editorial Reviews

Review

"A Christian financial advisor with an utterly charming voice recommends a map of financial goals, or destinations. Step by step, the audio shows how to get one’s spending under control, save for emergencies, pay off credit card and consumer debt, save for major purchases, buy an affordable house, pay it off early, invest wisely, and establish an estate plan so you can use your later years doing good for others. The infectious and convincing lessons are complete with testimonials and a believable dramatization of a financial intervention with a young couple. With supporting Bible references, the production asserts that a structured financial plan, discipline, and respect for God are essential to long-range financial freedom."

Review

The most effective method we've ever used to train people to handle money God's way.
-Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life

The practical principles in
Your Money Map are powerful and life-changing, because they are based on the Bible. My only regret is that I did not read it twenty years ago. Don't make that same mistake!
-Joe Gibbs, NFL Head Coach and Founder of NASCAR's Joe Gibbs Racing


More About the Author

Howard Dayton founded Crown Ministries in 1985 and developed a remarkably effective small group financial study. Crown Ministries merged with Larry Burkett's Christian Financial Concepts in September 2000 to form Crown Financial Ministries, the world's largest financial ministry. His life-long passion for applying God's principles to financial management dates back to 1974 when a business partner challenged him to study the Scriptures to discover what God teaches about handling money. The result has been a series of book clearly explaining God's principles for handling money: "Your Money: Frustration or Freedom, Your Money Counts, Free and Clear," and his most recent book, "Your Money Map." Howard and his wife, Beverly, reside in Gainesville, Georgia and have two children.

This book simplifies the money map step-by-step. It first discusses the biblical views of finances to give a foundation. I read one chapter at a time. I've already finished step-one on the money map and have read the chapter on step-two. Instead of getting overwhelmed, this book allows you to focus on your curent step.

If you are looking for advice on how to get out of debt, then you want to read this book.

The author uses solid Christian principles to explain how he, and others have moved from a debt laden lifestyle, to a debt free portfolio.

Howard breaks his program down into "destinations". The text is easy to read and does not require a financial understanding. He takes you through each step, and provides suggestions and resources to help you along the way.

9 of 12 people found the following review helpful By A. Fink on January 6, 2010
Format: Paperback
I've had this book for about two years now and have only read the first 55 pages. I bought the Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey yesterday and I have finished the entire book. The money map is largely biblical based, which is fine and all, but my money problems go beyond the bible. The total money makeover is a book for real people with real problems written by a christan man. You can quote money verses in the bible all day, that is not going to help me get my finances under control. Keep in mind I am a 22 year old wife and mother of a toddler. This book may work for you, but it had not for me. This book DID inspire me to put 1k in my savings. But it stopped after that. The total money makeover has real facts and numbers, it is much more eye opening in MY PERSONAL opinion.

Format: Hardcover
My wife and I (married for 2 years) just read through this book.

It can be a little corny at times in the way the conversations take place, and it makes something as big as paying off credit card debt seem like a 2 week ordeal.

However, it does have a lot of good examples and is based on sound principals. I highly reccomend any engaged, single, or newlyweds look at this book as early as possible.

Format: Paperback
(¤Thank you for reading this review and your votes - either way!¤)
INTRO:
This book was included in the Family book-package purchased at a Weekend-To-Remember seminar by [...] and it was the only one dealing with finances (so I was very excited to sit down with my wife and read it together). Also, on the front cover, the book gets the endoresement of Rick Warren, author of 'The Purpose-Driven Life' ("The most effective method we've every used to train people to hadle money God's way.") - another plus. The dissapointment came throughout the 3 days spent reading & finishing 'Your Money Map' due to lack of credibility from the author, over-optimistic agenda, and mixed messages/themes regarding this "Proven 7-Step Guide to True Finacial Freedom."

AUTHOR:
Howard Dayton, is "CEO of Crown Financial Ministries" and host of the nationally syndicated radio program 'Money Matters.' He writes very clear and direct. His wife is named Bev. Both seem like genuine loving people, Christians that love the Lord, and folks that I would love to meet. I really wanted to love this book and give it 5 stars.

DOWNSIDES:
There were three claims that frustrated me and made me question the credibility of the author:
1) CLAIM #1 - the Subtitle states that this is "a PROVEN 7-Step Guide to True Financial Freedom." The author is very convinced that his 7-step plan will work ("God's way of handling money" used ubiquitously) YET he never states that himself, Bev, or Larry Burkett (Crown's co-founder) have reached all the 7 Destinations. On page 242, we learn about a couple who are "making progress" on the journey, but not a real-life example of one that has "achieved true financial freedom." Quite on contrary.

I give this gift out at weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, graduations - any occasion! I've read a lot of books about money and investing, but what I needed was a step by step guide. As of today, I am on Destination 3. I have $1000 in emergency fund, developed a spending plan, know where all my money is going, paid off all my credit cards, paid of my car, and am paying off my student loans. I didn't realize what a weight debt is on our shoulders until I started paying off my debt.

I have read this book myself and I have bought 2 other copies to give as gifts. The book is easy to read and has truly been a blessing to the way my husband and I handle our finances. I found out about the book through a radio program that Howard Dayton is on. This is really a great book that gives you biblical guidance on how to handle your finances at every stage of life.
