Want to make a difference in the church? Give!
Want to make a difference in the world? Give!

Want to make a difference in eternity? Give!

And give with a joyful heart. Why? Well, because God commands it. But, more importantly, and, as this book very clearly and articulately points out, because Jesus decreed that we should give in order to recieve. It is a promise. Jesus, according to Mr. Tripp, spoke more about money and finances than he did about heaven and hell combined; I have no means to verifying this readily available, but it seems a rather easily believable statement. We are all self-absorbed, ego-centric creatures who seek to further our own agendas. But what can happen when you place others first?

Christ not only demanded that we give, but he said that, when we do, we build a treasure greater than any can imagine; in heaven. So, there's the catch, if you can dare to call it such; do you seek instant or long-term gratification, immediate reward or eternal earnings? Jesus promised reward to those who give. And, in all honesty, the fact that we are saved by God's grace is amazing enough. Yet, here we have the Lord's promise that he will further bless us when we give.

And this is not just another book that attempts to guilt you in to tithing, although, that is obviously a decree of the Lord as well. Rather, this book points out that we should give; time, experience, posessions. We should do so gladly; at work, at home, on the streets, in church, wherever we may see that someone is in need. The gift is to God and what God chooses to do, or to allow the recipient to do with the gift is of no concern to you, the giver. God keeps record and will reward those who give.

We do lots of bible studies with our small group. I really wanted to like this one. I heard good things about it, read good reviews, and then I read it and was disappointed. We also viewed the videos that accompany the lesson. They are very outdated and the information is dry. I almost nodded off. The questions were incredibly basic and there was not much depth. It didn't leave much to be discussed. The best discussion questions are those that do not have simple answers. Most of the questions in this guide had simple answers. In my opinion, this study guide would be good for an individual who wants to do some personal reflections and grow in knowledge of biblical financial management. It would be great for beginners. It does not work well as a group study. I would recommend the Blessed Life by Robert Morris for a better overall financial study for a group.

Excellent resource on the Biblical principle of giving. Our church gave this book away several years ago as a part of a sermon series. Very easy read, just 120 small pages. It should be read by every Christian!

I have recently read "The Treasure Principle" (not the Bible Study edition) by Randy Alcorn and "generosity" by Gordon MacDonald. Both are excellent and worth your time and treasure but, "The Treasure Principle Bible Study" is, in my opinion, the best. Why? Because the Bible Study takes the student deep into the Word without the many explanatory stories found in both the other books. I recommend this book highly. I must warn you it will work better alongside its master, "The Treasure Principle," but it can certainly be used as a stand alone study book. This book is made for any Sunday School Class.

The overall message of this book is how to unlock the secret of joyful giving. Alcorn challenges individual believers to examine their freewill giving. He urges believers to examine their motives and measure of giving as a barometer of their spiritual life today and as to what is being established in heaven. Alcorn's singular goal is that believers truly trust God and obediently evaluate how they are spending or using the monies that God has entrusted us with. He challenges individual believers to examine what their current attitude to God, giving, and money is now and to realign their thinking with five (5) treasure principles.

I found this book to be a very riveting read. I could not put it down. This book is a very easy read and can be read in one or two settings. Alcorn writes with clarity and holds your attention very well. However, to receive the maximum benefit of this book I suggest that one should read it slow and savor the various truths and principles that are presented. This book was challenging and inspirational. It caused me to rethink how I view the privilege of giving. This book forces the reader to think through each principle personally.

Alcorn backs his points with Scripture in an accurate and stimulating fashion. I would highly recommend this book to every Elder, church leader and every believer.
