What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"There are many voices in the BRI world, not all of which are really helpful. Loran has written a very thoughtful, principle-driven book that I believe will add much to this necessary conversation about what a believing investor should know about applying their faith to all investing decisions. I believe this book will be around for many years. I recommend it highly." -Ron Blue, founding director of Kingdom Advisors, and best-selling author of eightteen books on finance from a biblical perspective, including Master Your Money.

“I believe in Biblically Responsible Investing (BRI). If my money is really God’s money, and if God is good and holy, shouldn’t I invest his money in companies that offer a good service or product? Shouldn’t I avoid investing in businesses that take advantage of human weaknesses by tempting people to sin, self-destruction, and disintegration of the family? In Investing with Integrity, Loran Graham has put together a clear, engaging, and persuasive case for BRI. I encourage you to look at it carefully and to ask God what he wants you to do with the money He has entrusted to your care.” -Randy Alcorn, author of Money, Possessions & Eternity, The Treasure Principle and Managing God’s Money

“Loran Graham has done a superb job in Investing with Integrity to help followers of Christ align their investment decisions with the heart of God. How we handle money is so important to the Lord that there are 2,350 verses in the Bible dealing with it. You will be challenged and encouraged as you learn God's way of investing. I heartily recommend this book!” - Howard Dayton, founder of Compass: Finances God's Way

"Wise stewardship isn’t just about saving, investing, and avoiding debt—it’s about doing so in a way that honors the Lord. Loran Graham’s book provides readers with a comprehensive strategy for doing just that, through Biblically Responsible Investing." -Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family
