Publishers Description You can't take it with you. But the wealth you leave behind could be the best thing that ever happened to your loved ones--or the worst. By approaching these important topics with clarity, conviction, and a little bit of humor, financial advisor Ron Blue explains why it is important to make these decisions now, instead of forcing your heirs to do it later.

More About Ron Blue & Jeremy White
After spending his early career on Wall Street and as an entrepreneur, Ron Blue became a Christian in his early 30s. Since 1979, he has held a God given passion to help Christians plan and manage their finances in order to be able to maximize Kingdom giving. Over time, Ron has pursued this passion in several ways. He is the founder of Ronald Blue & Co., the largest fee-only Christian financial planning firm in the country. He has authored twenty books on biblical financial stewardship, including Master Your Money, The Complete Guide to Faith Based Family Finances, and Surviving Financial Meltdown. In 2003, he helped to establish Kingdom Advisors, a ministry that trains financial advisors to integrate biblical wisdom into their client advice. In 2012, Ron partnered with Indiana Wesleyan University to establish The Ron Blue Institute for Financial Planning, dedicated to multiplying the message of biblical financial wisdom in the public and academic sectors through curriculum development and thought leadership.
Ron holds a BS and an MBA from Indiana University. He and his wife Judy live in Atlanta, Georgia. They have five children and thirteen grandchildren.

Very Informative Mar 12, 2010
A must read for anyone desiring to be responsible in their estate planning. Should be in every library and church library (I donated a copy).
A "Big Picture" Christian Perspective on Wealth Transfer Feb 16, 2008
Christian financial planning icon Ron Blue reveals the hidden weakness in most of the "estate planning" Christians (and non-Christians) end up pursuing: We focus too much on tax strategies and the mechanics of asset distribution at death, rather than focusing on how we can best deploy our assets to do the most good while we're living AND upon our deaths. Ron encourages a thoughtful, caring approach to estate planning (or "wealth transfer", as he rightfully prefers to call it), and dares to challenge some commonly held secular assumptions about the potential impact of wealth on our heirs. This is an eye-opening book. It helps me as a Christian lawyer, estate planning speaker and author (The Believer's Guide to Legal Issues) to better address the human and spiritual goals of my clients in the wealth transfer planning process.
