Reviews - What do customers think about Money Possessions And Eternity?
book about tithing.... Mar 8, 2007
The first part of this book is good, but then gets into tithing as a place to start giving and goes on from there. The author doesn't understand that Israel was a theocratic society and the tithes were to fund Israel's government: the priests, etc. just like how our taxes today fund our government.
I think the first part of the book is useful in that it puts possessions and money in perspective for the Christian.
Excellent and Comprehensive Jan 15, 2007
This complete guide offers both practical financial advice for everyone and also guidelines for Christians. It is comprehensive and covers debt, investing, budgeting, giving, insurance, inheritance, etc... There were so many points that made me ponder the choices that we make every day. I plan to give this book as gifts to all of my family and friends. Their lives will be much happier if they read and apply the principles taught in this wonderful book.
Good Guiding Light Jan 4, 2007
For a person struggling to find their footing in handling money matters the Biblical way, this book is a good guiding light to begin with.
Best book I've found on being God's manager (steward) Nov 5, 2006
Randy Alcorn has captured the essence of what the bible says about our relationship with God, as his stewards (managers), in an easy to digest, often profound, book. This critical, often hard to understand topic, becomes clear an personal through his book. Thank you Randy!
Financial information appeals to 20 something Christians Nov 4, 2006
This book was a gift. My newphew requested this book and I gladly purchase it.He's never been interested in knowing how to manage money and gaining financial freedom, he's 21. On becoming a Christian, he is more eager to learn new things. This book has given him the tools that he needed for financial freedom from his Mom & Dad's bank account. Since reading this book, he has opened a savings & checking account. He pays himself first and thinks if he really need an item or is it a want. I've seen growth in him. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs answers in gaining financial knowledge for themselves.
