Money, Possessions and Eternity by Randy Alcorn A very thick book in Very Good Condition, Clean, Unmarked, foxed. Description - Who wants to settle for fleeting treasures on earth... When God offers everlasting treasures in heaven? It's time to rethink our perspectives on money and possessions. In this thoroughly researched and extensively updated classic, Randy Alcorn shows us how to view them accurately--as God's provision for our good, the good of others, and his glory. Alcorn presents a biblical and comprehensive view of money and possessions, including: - Why is money so important to God? - Is prosperity theology right or wrong? - How can we be liberated from materialism? - What should we do about debt? - How much does God want us to give? - How can we best help the poor and reach the lost? - What about gambling? investing? insurance? saving? retirement? inheritance? - How can we leave our children a true heritage? - How can we use money in ways that God rewards? This completely revised and updated version of the classic best-seller provides a Christian perspective about money and material possessions based on the author's painstaking study of the Bible. An excellent choice for group study as well as individual financial guidance. Contains topical and Scripture indexes, a study guide, five helpful appendices with additional resources. Amazon Book Reviews - 1) A book that will challenge you! - By Dottie Parish This is an outstanding, well written, comprehensive book clearly explaining biblical truths about money and possessions and clearly exploring the materialism of our culture. Alcorn addresses how to manage our money, the importance giving and giving more than ever, how to set priorities, and how to avoid hoarding. This is a book I will read over and over again. The idea that challenged me the most is the idea that we should not leave our money to our children but prayerfully decide where it will make the most difference for Christ and give it away. 2) God's Purpose For Money, Possessions, & Eternity in our lives - By Denise J Holder I've only browsed through this but I can't wait to read it cover to cover. Randy Alcorn came highly recommended by a pastor & the reviews sealed the deal for this purchase. I appreciate that it has topical Scriptural indexes, a study guide, & 5 helpful appendices. For me these are the ear marks of a well rounded Christian "self-help" manual. This book is comprised of four parts which covers everything I could possibly want to have in-depth information regarding these topics. Part 1: The Challenge Of Money & Possessions Part 2: Seeing Money & Possessions In Eternity's Light Part 3: Giving & Sharing Our Money & Possessions Part 4: Handling Our Money & Possessions This is a revised & updated edition. I look forward to the changes this book will bring about in my life & my adult children's lives. I'm sending each one of them a copy. Garner everything you can from this book. Enjoy!!!
