My Thoughts

I am often interested in financial books because I work in that industry. I find it interesting to learn more on the different ways to handle my own money.

This book actually surprised me in a good way! It is laid out in a very easy to read and understand format. It wasn’t super complicated and the two authors break down the information so it isn’t so overwhelming.

It is very clear that this is a financial book that includes the perspective of all that we have is God’s. Plain and simple. Also, that since it is all His, we need to be responsible for what He has given us. So I really appreciated that aspect. There are a couple things I didn’t fully agree with but for the most part I found the authors to be very wise. Some of the verses put in the book I felt like were a bit of a stretch to relate to the topic being discussed.  I am sure not all readers will agree but from my perspective, I thought many of their points were spot on, specifically the topics on credit cards, credit, and fraud.

The only thing I thought could have been added to a bit more is the giving aspect of the budget. This SHOULD be something as Christians we really consider. Not as a line item on our budget but that we want to help support our brothers and sisters in Christ.


This is a great overview book from everything from credit to investments. I recommend if this is something you want to dig into a bit more!


Five Stars.
