GPS for Financial Christian Living
If you have been looking for an in-depth discussion of what the Bible says concerning financial matters then this book is for you. This book does not attempt to cover personal financial material covered by other books but focuses on the Christian and Biblical perspective concerning personal financial matters so sorely lacking in most books on personal finance.
A wide range of topics are discussed that should have the reader thinking critically concerning how we use the financial resources the Lord has given us to use for His glory. Some of the topics include debt and borrowing, insurance, giving, funding education, and budgeting. This book fills a void left by other personal financial books, which may be quite good in understanding how things work in the physical realm of financial tools, but have nothing that conveys the spiritual perspective that is important to the Christian seeking to do God's will.
The reader will be richly blessed to be brought to the Bible time after time to find what God has to say about this very important area of our lives. It should be a help on your journey.
