Money, Possessions, and Eternityby Randy Alcorn
What does the Bible really say about money? This completely revised and updated version of the classic best-seller provides a Christian perspective about money and material possessions based on the author's painstaking study of the Bible.

This book is SO challenging but SO excellent! It's a slap in the face sometimes but it's such godly, wise truth! I recommend it to anyone who wants to honor God through how they live or spend their money. Wow!
Read this book with the mind set that the principles need to be practiced since they are from the bible. Read this book to gain knowledge on the numerous writings in the bible on materialism. After reading this book ask yourself did I change and did I become a cheerful giver to the LORD? If you answering yes, then this book is a library asset for a life-time.
This book is extremely comprehensive. It covers many areas of financial stewardship that are ignored in other books. The most important thing though is that all the advice in this book is Biblically based. It WILL challenge you. Although we committed to living debt and mortgage free and believe in tithing, after reading this book we realized there are many other ways that God wants us to think about and utilize the gifts he has given to us. You will not regret it if you purchase, read and apply what is in this book because you will be following God's will for your finances. Although it is inspiring, this book did give us so many things to think about (and sometimes it is just not clear how God wants us to behave) that there were many areas to which we had to just turn over to prayer. I have purchased several copies to loan out to friends and to give away. Everyone appreciated it and I am planning to purchase even more. We read this while watching the Andy Stanley video series "Lost" which was very similar and also excellent. This book can be a bit academic (dry) reading at times, but since the advice was so valuable, I read the whole book, even areas that in no way pertained to us (such as kids and money yet we have no kids). Why? Because I wanted to know what God instructs so that I may help others to know.
This is one of the few books in my library that I know I will be reading over again through the years. Very impacting and filled with information that is worth repeating and memorizing. A must have!
The message God has given Randy about money and possessions is exacally what this country NEEDS. Ron Blue was not kidding when he said, '[This book] has affected my life and ministry more than any other book besides the Bible'. I have such a refreshed and new look towards everything that the LORD has placed in my care. This message is desperatly needed in the Church! I pray, hope, and even attempt for this word to reach all those who are fortunate to have a flow of money comming to their hands. This is one book that better be in your library!
