Overview

Prosperity.
It's one of the most dividing words in the church. Some pastors use it to tell their congregations that God will make them all rich, rich, rich! Others spurn the word and insist that true Christlikeness is found in forsaking all worldly riches and possessions.

The truth is, both are right--and both are wrong.

With refreshing honesty, humor, and keen insight, bestselling author and pastor Kris Vallotton mines the Scriptures in an eye-opening study of what the Bible really says about money, poverty, riches, and wealth. And what he finds is sure to shake up what you thought you knew--including these surprising truths:

· Jesus was not poor and homeless
· Poverty is a mind-set that holds us back from true wealth
· You determine your wealth based on how much, and how well you love yourself

When you learn to cultivate a mind-set of abundance, no matter your circumstances, you will begin to experience the wealth of heaven in every area of your life.

Review I’ve been following Kris Valloton on Facebook for a long time. I really like and appreciate his wisdom and insight in the prophetic. I own another three (unread) books by him, picking this one for review was an obvious choice for me. After finishing Poverty, Riches & Wealth it doesn’t seem that obvious though. Let me start by saying that I have no complains about the actual content of this book. Valloton touches important topics on the perception that most Christians have about the money and prosperity. He backs up his teaching with the Word, giving example after example on how we have twisted the Scriptures in order to stay in our confort zone about the lack of resources in our lives. A common element in Poverty, Riches and Wealth is the inclusion of Valloton’s journey through his life in different business, before he became a full time minister. He uses his experience to teach common misconceptions and mistakes many of us have in order to correct them or avoid them. Then, what’s the reason of my initial comment? Well, the reason is that while the content is totally useful and practical, Valloton seems to had the wish to cover all the bases and in doing so the book lacks focus and clarity. He goes from talking about cultural background about the poverty mindset in America to explaining tithing, from sharing a really long story about his meeting with the Pope to giving leadership advice. Conclusion I’m guessing if you’re familiar with Valloton’s writings, you’ll be happy after reading Poverty, Riches and Wealth. Maybe I need to read more of his books in order to get his way of thinking, or maybe he needs a better editor, that would solve most of the issues with the lack of focus. I received this book from Chosen Books in exchange for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

So this book was actually different then I thought it would be. I thought it would be more about thinking with a poverty mindset with spiritual gifts. That is not the case. This book really talks about how God does want to bless us with physical gifts as well. Kris did a great job explaining somethings I had a weak understanding of in the past. His personal stories add a touch I appreciate that kept me engaged. Even though this wasn’t what I expected I still enjoyed the book very much. A copy of this book was given to me through Netgalley.com. All opinions are my own.

I love that author Kris Vallotton brings out the fact that prosperity isn’t just about money. True riches aren’t just about money. This is not a name it and claim it book. He teaches us the biblical principles of money and wealth. God does really want us to prosper. What does that look like? And how does that happen? I suggest you get this book and learn from it. Along with God’s ideas about money, Vallotton teaches about leaving a legacy for future generations. And that’s not just money either. This book may challenge your mindset, but that’s okay. Find out what true wealth is in God’s Kingdom. I received a complimentary copy of this book but was not required to leave a review.

This book is one of Kris Vallotton's best yet! It helped me discover truths that changed my life and shifted the way I view money and finances, forever. If you have EVER thought about money, you have to read this! Get ready for a fresh, desperately needed perspective on Poverty, Riches & Wealth!
