Once again, Adam Hamilton is leading the church; Enough is enough was once a Wesleyan watchword. Adam breathes new life into the Wesleyan commitment to simplicity. Amid a culture of greed and conspicuous consumption Adam calls us to a biblically based, evangelical joy of having the faith to say enough is enough. --Bishop Will Willimon United Methodist Church, Birmingham Area
I pay close attention to whatever Adam Hamilton writes. His books are marked by extraordinary pastoral insight, biblical and theological depth, courage to speak the truth, and down-to-earth practicality. Enough comes like an antidote in the middle of a pandemic. I hope that classes, groups, couples, and individuals will use this book and the economic crisis it addresses as a challenge to get healthy again by deepening our discipleship in the vital area of money and possessions. --Brian McLaren, Author/Networker (brianmclaren.net) --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

We are living in uncertain time economically. Uncertain times can cause us to reflect upon our focus and priorities and this is what the book is all about. Hamilton is too grounded to simplify this into saying "just give ten percent to the church and everything will be okay." This is about changing our relationship with money by focusing on our relationship with God. This is about making changes in the way we live that better reflect who we are.
The text is full of scripture references and there is something different about how Hamilton references the Bible. These are not just "proof texts" that mention money. They are texts that point out our need to refocus on God, our need to see that our brokenness and emptiness will never be cured by buying, owning and possessing. We are led to find our peace and contentment in God and be free to live life in simplicity and to share generously. The book is spiritual based, but when you get right down to it, it is practical.Read more ›
The economy would not be in its current state if people and the country itself were not living beyond their means. With this in mind, Adam Hamilton gives practical advice for balancing your home budget. On the other hand, many of us are practical budget managers. Grant it, there are always things to cut from the budget. I could skip eating out once per week. I could buy cheap beer instead of good beer. These are things I may not be willing to do. This does not mean I can not make a healthy contribution to the church.
I do agree with the principle of giving back to the Lord. Hamilton states that if you can not give 10%, set a percentage of your budget to give to the Lord. Obviously, do not force the children to live on popcorn to meet the 10%. Make a commitment. We are blessed by what we share.
Perhaps the greatest flaw in the book is that it focuses on monetary gifts. Giving can also be of time or skill. One need not open his/her wallet to share with the Lord.
