Item description for A Declaration of Financial Independence by Josh Gilliam...
Overview Issuing a rallying cry for preserving sacred freedoms, Gilliam empowers the reader with a Biblical perspective for financial decision-making, and reveals the secret of contentment in an age of unprecedented--but often unfulfilling--wealth. (Practical Life)
Publishers Description In our culture many corrupted ideas of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness have been promoted and accepted for so long that they bear the superficial appearance of being right. Americans design lifestyles and build financial plans around these "ideas" without realizing oppression lies just beneath their surface-a tyranny far worse than the British Crown ever stamped on us. By exploring the causes and the destructive effects of excess, A Declaration of Financial Independence is a rallying cry for preserving our sacred freedoms. It empowers the reader with a Biblical perspective for financial decision-making and reveals the secret of contentment in an age of unprecedented-but often unfulfilling-wealth. This one-of-a-kind composition is principled, clever and instructive. From Jesus to Joseph Goebbels (Hitler's propaganda minister), the book uses Scripture, history, statistics and personal anecdotes to expose and expel a new tyrant-the Crown of Popular Culture. "Popular culture has lied to us-you deserve it, do what feels good, there is no such thing as right or wrong, to name but a few. And each lie becomes another link in the chain that holds so many captive. But there is hope. A Declaration of Financial Independence provides critical insight and will equip others to break free from their chains. D. Bryan Wickens, president and attorney, Reclaim Our Culture Kentuckiana (ROCK) "Josh Gilliam merges a unique historical perspective with current relevance to provide helpful insights for our journey from Success to Significance. We (as a country) have been incredibly blessed, and as a result we (as individuals) have an unprecedented opportunity to impact the lives of the less fortunate. This book will help us on that journey." Lloyd Reeb, director, The Halftime Group, and author of From Success to Significance

Creative, compelling and practical Jul 9, 2008
Part I of this book explains in well-documented detail how "The Crown of Popular Culture" has deceived us into thinking our happiness and satisfaction in life is dependent upon our level of consumption. Even those of us who feel we are free from the stronghold of the material things of this world will be challenged to reconsider where our treasures truly lie.
After leading the reader through a personal Declaration of Financial Independence, Part II takes the reader through practical steps, both spiritual and financial, to access, achieve and maintain independence from the tyranny of the Crown.
I've read this book through and through, and I can tell you it is creative, well-documented, scripturally sound, eye-opening and life-changing.
Christian Spirits and the Fight for the Kingdom Jun 26, 2008
In this Remarkable book Josh Gilliam carefully narrates the development of what one of the most powerful kingdoms or nation today. This being of course the rise and ascension of the United States as a world super power. This rise however was a material rise. And the weakness of the United States is thus, it appears fat and rich in every aspect but deep inside it is starved of what matters most in the lives of its people. What is American willing to die for? Josh asks the question repeatedly and calling on Americans to see that this nation while historically grounded in principles such as Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness. This last part, the pursuit of happiness is not now, nor has been historically fulfilled. America is portraying an image of being well of but because it lives crown in a worldly crown of materialism that gratifies fleshly over consumption and vain life styles with no spiritual discipline. While pursuing happiness is important Josh kindly asks does this mean we should die for vain quests for righteousness at the expense of our Christianity. As a Christian Josh engages his readers thus "what are you willing to die for" and what is your purpose. In this engagement Josh illustrates how America is half-developed and that in need to change it's principles to and only when American attitudes in the world are The Pursuit of holiness, Life, Liberty will Americans have freedom to the crown of the world that keep us slaves to empty desires which at best would lead only to poverty and worst to damnation in this world and the next through our own doings.
