This is a classic book on biblical finances that gives an comprehensive reading of most issues that Christian men and women need to address in areas of financial stewardship. I can see how other Christian books along the same vein would be influenced by Ron Blue and Larry Burkett's books in general if they were written in the early to mid 90s. In this book, the only areas of caution are the stereotypes that Ron uses to describe men and women's differences. That could merit a separate book.
I've taught out of this book in Sunday school for a year already with a few more months to go before we're finished. The book is interesting to talk about, but there is little motivation for anyone to practice the exercises in this book unless one is actively trying to get out of debt. But that is a problem with Christian books in general.
On a personal note, I find that I am not as fearful about discussing and analyzing financial topics as I used to be. I can also understand how reaching for life's goals is refreshingly sobering when looking at life in financial terms. That is what Ron does brilliantly. This is not a book with Christian fluff between the covers. There is good meat here to grow on.
I recommend the book highly particularly for a motivated reading group.
It turned out that my Sunday School class and I spent two years in this book pretty much to the day. We had a lot to talk about and after all was said and done (reading the book from cover to cover and checking out all of the scripture references), it didn't seem like two years had passed by. It was a real pleasure teaching out of this book. Thank you very much, Mr. Blue.
