What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Jesus says more about possessions and how we should manage money than just about any other topic—including both heaven and hell. God cares about your needs and knows about your wants. In Your Finances God’s Way, Scott LaPierre teaches you how to handle one of life’s greatest stewardships in a concise, enjoyable, practical way. This book presents a clear path to financial joy, offering solutions to the most common problems we face. This book will benefit anyone with the good sense to apply its principles. You will want to read it for yourself, recommend it to friends, and give it as a gift.”
—Mary Hunt, financial expert, speaker, bestselling author, and founder of Debt-Proof Living

“Scott LaPierre’s book uses good, crisp, readable prose to make one central point: The Bible should guide your views of money. His analysis is fresh and will make you think. Even if you don’t agree with every detail within, you will learn a lot and be very glad you read this.”
—Michael P. Farris, president and CEO, Alliance Defending Freedom

“If there are hundreds of finance books out there, why read this one? Because this isn’t one man’s opinions on debt, giving, saving, and more, but rather, God’s. Scott does a brilliant job of covering the biblical and practical nature of money for all believers.”
—Scott Maderer, podcaster and coach on Inspired Stewardship

Your Finances God’s Way is just that—it’s a way to ‘do money’ the way God intended. But this isn’t just a book about money; it’s a book about how to handle God’s money, which He has given each of us to steward as faithful servants. Scott does a fantastic job of presenting a biblical perspective on finances that is often countercultural but will lead to freedom in our lives. If you struggle with feeling burdened about money and want biblical solutions, this is your book.”
—Shana Schutte, author of Two Minutes in the Bible for Women

“Scott LaPierre helps us understand a profound truth and warning in Scripture that applies to all of our finances: ‘To everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away’ (Matthew 25:29). The Bible offers profound wisdom for us, and Scott gleans that wisdom to help us with our finances. If more married people would read this book, fewer of them would end up in marital counseling with me.”
—Mark W. Baker, PhD, clinical psychologist and author Overcoming Shame: Let Go of Others’ Expectations and Embrace God’s Acceptance

Your Finances God’s Way is a bold yet balanced book about how Christians should handle their finances. LaPierre’s words are compelling because of his personal examples and plentiful use of Scripture. If you let yourself be influenced by this book, both your righteousness and wealth will grow.”
—Patrick Blair, author of Faith and Finances and host of Faith and Finances Ministry

“Though you may not agree with everything in this book, there is much practical and biblical advice to help people manage God’s money wisely. May God use it to help you be a faithful steward.”
—James Merritt, pastor, Cross Pointe Church, Duluth, GA

“I can’t think of a wiser, more useful guidebook for anyone who hopes to become a better steward of their cash and leave behind the richest of legacies.”
—Phil Callaway, radio host, author of Laugh Like a Kid Again

“America is in crisis with consumer debt, student debt, and corporate debt in the trillions along with a national debt in the tens of trillions. The solution is to get back to biblical basics and manage your finances God’s way. Scott LaPierre teaches sound principles on biblical stewardship while warning of the dangers of consumerism. He then applies those principles to topics ranging from debt to saving to giving. This is the book America needs.”
—Kerby Anderson, president, Probe Ministries; host, Point of View radio talk show

“This book is full of biblical financial wisdom. Practical examples make it useful. I especially appreciate the in-depth exposition of key Scripture texts (including Jesus’ parables) related to money issues are expounded and applied.”
—Dr. Jim Newheiser, Professor of Pastoral Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, NC; executive director of IBCD (Institute for Biblical Counseling and Discipleship)

“The heart of Christian stewardship is longing to hear the words ‘Well done, good and faithful servant’ when we are called to heaven. Your Finances God’s Way is a must-read for anyone seeking to become a better steward who uses a biblical approach to handling money. Scott lays out a solid foundation for managing money in a way that glorifies God. I highly recommend this!”
—Jay Peroni, CFP, author of The Faith-Based Millionaire; Chief Investment Officer, Retirement Specialty Group LLC
