    Managing God's Money

    The latest book I have is called Managing God's Money, A biblical guide by Randy Alcorn.
    Have you ever had questions about what the bible says about managing money? Questions like, Is money really important to God, What exactly does tithing mean,and what's wrong wit wanting things? If your human, you can admit that we all have a question or two about what the right way to give. I know I have. Many people have often been troubled about just what to give to churches and ministries.
    Some even believe that preachers are only after your money and it's not necessary to give. But, the truth is that in the bible, you find Jesus teaching more about money than any other topic, so it must have been somewhat important!
    Inside this book, you find many questions that have been grouped into sections.

    *Money & Possessions: Bible 101
    *Perceptive That Impede Faithful Money Management
    *Our Stewardship in eternity's Light
    *Giving & Sharing God's Money and Possessions
    *Wisely Handling Gods Money and Possessions
    *Passing the Baton of Wise Stewardship

    Another topic that can cause quite a stir among Christians is tithing. This book tackles some really hard questions.

    My thoughts:

    At first I felt like I knew a lot of the information that was covered in the book. But, it was nice to have something to use as a reference in addition to the bible. I would suggest this book for anyone that really wants an understanding on giving to the church. But if this is something that you feel confident on, this book may not be for you. At any rate, it's easy to read and you can pick the questions that stand out to you. It's a small book but easy to read at 253 pages long.

    A Solid Biblical Understanding Of Financial Stewardship

    Randy Alcorn in his new book "Managing God's Money" published by Tyndale House Publishers teaches us in how to gain a solid Biblical understanding of financial stewardship.

    Solomon clearly tells us that money is the answer to everything. However it is what we think of money and how we handle it that is causing trouble around the globe. Randy Alcorn is giving us a Biblical guide to these answers. In sections that are "Money and Possessions", "Perspectives That Impede Faithful Money Management", "Our Stewardship In Eternity's Light", "Giving and Sharing God's Money and Possessions", "Wisely Handling God's Money and Possessions" and "Passing The Baton Of Wise Stewardship".

    In this easy to follow format, Randy Alcorn addresses exactly what the Bible says about everything God has entrusted to us and that God cares immensely that we manage money with an eternal perspective. Randy Alcorn uses lots of scripture to back up all that he is saying. If we change our mindset and our thinking then we will do different things then we have done before. It is high time we handled our money in a way that is pleasing to God. Randy Alcorn in "Managing God's Money" has given us a tool to do just that.

    Managing his Money

    " Managing God's Money" by Randy Alcorn is a very easy, quick and inspiring read. For only $5.99 this book offers great practical advice in how to spend and tithe money. Money is an essential part to our daily lives whether we want it to be or not. Randy provides Biblical teaching in how to handle our fiances in a Godly way.


    This is a book that would be great for a Pastor, Recent Graduate or a family who is trying to be a good steward. This is a great book that I will keep as reference on my book shelf from time to time. I think parts of this book could be applicable for a youth group or church study.
