From the Back Cover
Prosperity is part of God's plan for us. This book gives us biblical principles and practical tools to achieve the prosperity God promises. Too often the greatest reason folks are in financial trouble is because they shop to buy things they really don't need with money they don't have.
Using biblical principles, Singletary teaches readers the essentials of becoming financially fit by putting them on a 21-day financial fast. This financial fast requires that readers stop using their credit cards for 21 days. They have to refrain from buying anything but the bare essentials, such as food and medicine.
They can't shop. They can't even window shop. They can't eat out. They can't use credit.
This financial fast will help readers achieve financial deliverance. They will break the bond that shopping or unwise credit card usage has had on their lives. Even readers who consider themselves good stewards over their money will be surprised how much money they spend even as they bargain shop.
Singletary gives the reasons why handling your money following biblical principles will lead to prosperity. If people had followed core financial principles outlined in the Bible--the borrower is slave to the lender--we wouldn't be in the mess we are in right now.
As Singletary speaks at more and more churches, she is often asked for a book that frames personal finance in terms of good stewardship using Scriptures. That's not something I was free to do in my first book.
That's where this book is different. She hits people hard and makes them think; for example, if they are Christian, are they handling their money as they should? Are they rejecting tithing because they truly don't believe in it or because they are just too broke to see the blessing behind it?

This book will set you straight and on the right path to cut your consumption rate. I have attempted to reduce our consumption rate before and we stopped for a short period of time, but begin consuming out of control again.
I came across this book and decided to purchase a copy after reading the table of contents. We have really had to begin standing in our truth. This book is so in your face that, you will want to get your financial lives in order. Chapter 8 entitlement, was so in your face. Many people really do have more things and value things more than people and saving for those rainy days is a must. Consumption reduction is a must.
This book is written with such excellence and information, even solutions. We have told so many people about this book and many have also purchased this book.
How are we doing on the fast, well I will tell you that we will do the fast again next month and so on until there is complete order. And we will continue to reduce our consumption rate. My husband if very happy that I finally see what he has been telling me all along.
If you want to reduce your consumption, bring order to your finances and even your house hold. This book is for you. We are completing this book with the Daniel fast so not only are we on a financial fast but the Daniel Fast as well. Glory be to God for placing this book in our hands. There is so much financial information, and I love the way the book takes you to biblical scripture to show you exactly what the Author is talking about. This book is well written, completed in excellence, and will make your spirit come to the truth.. Many people probably are giving negative reviews because you have to be honest, face the truth. You have to look at the women/man in the mirror. As the saying goes, the truth hurts.
I am so glad that we now have a guide to help us reduce consumption and give direction for your financial life. If you are ready to leave an inheritance for your children, accountability, peace, honesty, free from bondage, control of your financial affairs, sweet sleep, order, etc. This book is for you.
This is a book to pass on to your children, to place in high school students hands, birthday gifts, gift for couples, this is a great book to use as a tool for helping individuals to get their finances in order. A book for those that are in financial shape and people who are not in financial shape. This book is a great just because gift, just because it is time to get your financial affairs in control. What if you fall off of the fast, dust yourself off and start the fast again until you get it right.. You are your best interest and it is time to put you and your finances in order.
Well Back to swallowing the hard truth.. But truth that will set you free. If you pass this by, you could very well pass your financial future by. Don't wait to purchase this book and don't do any more research on this book. Everything that you need to get your financial affairs in order can be found in this book and more. This book is good food for your mind, spirit, and finances.
I would also like to say that I have read many finance books, Dave Ramsey, Suze Orman, David Bach, etc.. all of them are great books, but this book stands in it's own class. This book breaks the bondage of spend spend spend.... It breaks the mindset of consume consume consume etc... We will continue with this fast just as we do the Daniel fast every year.. Great information to grow you with your finances
Journey to real freedom.
Like I said: I rented this book from the library and liked it so much that I decided to buy 1. And at $6 per book (that's half the price of everyone else)+ free shipping I figured I might as well get 2 of them.
Amazon.com had the books at my doorstep in 2 days. Very pleased with their speedy (free) delivery.
