When Larry Burkett’s Debt-Free Living was first published in 1989, I could have been one of the horror story case studies that opened the book. Coming out of my own bankruptcy at the time, I was on a mission to discover how money really works. Debt-Free Living was a light in my darkness, giving voice to a lifetime of common-sense financial principles that I had largely ignored. Now, twenty years later, I believe there has never been a better time for the time-honored, godly principles of this book to make a comeback.
Dave Ramsey is the best-selling author of The Total Money Makeover, a nationally syndicated radio talk show host, and host of The Dave Ramsey Show on the Fox Business Network.
It is a privilege for me to endorse the revised Debt Free Living by the person who impacted his world like no other. Larry's life message is sorely needed today. As he would say, "God's principles of finances are always right, always relevant, and will never change."

Sometimes it seemed as though Larry Burkett could see around corners. He certainly saw things long before the rest of us. That's why his warnings about the dangers of debt and the direction of our economy still ring true. Indeed, the turmoil of recent years has given even greater force to his insights. Of course, as Larry would say with genuine humility, "All I do is plagiarize Scripture." He saw his role as simply trying to convey that God's Word is true and that the Lord can be trusted. Indeed, that's what Debt-Free Living is all about.

As you can see by some of the other reviews, if you're not a Christian, you'll probably get hung up on some of the biblical principles: such things like keeping your word even when it costs you money, family leadership principles, living within your means, and the husband-wife relationship. So if you're not a Christian, I would suggest taking a serious look at the Bible (by studying what it says) and then compare it to the principles in this book. I think you'll find that the Bible is reliable and timeless in its guidelines for finances just as it is for every other area of life.
While much of the information is good so far as it goes, it is often too general in nature to be of great use to those who are really seeking (and needing) specific advice. From the subtitle of the book, "How to get out of debt and stay out" some prospective buyers may get the impression that this is a "how-to" book--that is, that it will run through an exhaustive list of specific things they can do to get out of debt. Unfortunately, that is not the focus of the book. It does, however, have very good information on personal bankruptcy should you be contemplating that particular option, and it also comes with SnapShot Gold debt management software which should make the book/CD ROM combo worth the price.
It is a good book to scare you into using the principles and guidlines Burkett offers in "The Complete Financial Guide for Young Couples" which despite it's name is great for the single and the married, and it is certainly not only for the young.
