Publishers Description "Do I really need a budget? How can I get out of debt? Should I give my kids an allowance? Should Christians lend money and charge interest?" These questions and many others were often asked of respected Christian financial counselor Larry Burkett. To answer them in a direct and brief way and help you discover the way to financial wisdom, Larry wrote "Personal Finances." To build a sturdy house, a builder needs a blueprint. To find his way, a traveler needs a map. And to manage your finances correctly, you need a budget. Without a plan, the house will collapse, the traveler will get lost, and your finances will eventually fail. Get on board with the basics of wise financial planning. From the youngest member of your family to the oldest, budgeting should accompany income. Learn how to create a budget and what it takes to stick with it in "Personal Finances."

Reviews - What do customers think about Personal Finances/Family Budget?
A great book to jump start your budget... Oct 22, 1999
I was discouraged and ready to throw in the towel on the familly budget. After reading this quick little book I gained a new vitality to get my finances back in order...Thanks for your wisdom Larry...
One review does not a rating a make Mar 2, 1999
C'mon this site. Let's be rational about reviews. Does one review from one individual constitute a review? I think not. Let's not blow the opportunity for others like myself that have no clue as to how to start budgeting or how to get control of finances. This book is written in a Chritian context from a Christian Author. It places the focus of stewardship/finances where they belongs. A book this small reads to the large part of the problem: If one does not have a budget by now, chances are they don't want to get bogged down in pages. This is a great place to start and an insight regarding the real source of all that we have! Let's make the rating on this book "not rated" until we hear from more readers.
This book should be titled a guide for Christian finances. Jan 7, 1999
At the back of the book, you will find 6 charts for budgeting (all related) that are of minimal use.The remainder of the book is strong on Chrisitian preaching and bible quoting! I wasn't looking for a lecture on how a Christian family should budget, tithe or keep their family close---I was looking for a meaty and helpful budget guide.I found nothing I didn't already know from general budgeting information except that my checkbook was down a little!If you have strong Christian beliefs this may be for you, but if you want a simple no-bull guide for budgeting---save your money and pass this one by.
