Additional Readings, Resources, and Books
that I would recommend for further insight
are as follows:
Money, Possessions and
Eternity, Randy Alcorn, (Tyndale House Publishers)
- This book is a classic on wealth and the
responsibilities that go along with it. It includes practical guidelines
to family inheritance issues and puts the whole money thing into
perspective. If I could only read one book on the subject, this is it.
Wealthy and Wise, Claude Rosenberg, Jr., (Little, Brown and
- Written from a Jewish perspective, Claude
Rosenberg explains why charitable giving is not only a sensible solution
to today’s most pressing problems, but a sound personal investment as
Trust God For Your Finances, Jack Hartman, (Lamplight
- Written by a businessman, this book is one of
the most scripturally exhaustive books on the subject of finances I have
found. It will help people escape from financial problems. Jack Harman
was close to a nervous breakdown before he discovered the secrets of
Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki, (Warner Books and Time
Warner Audio Books)
- This bestseller discusses lessons learned by a
man who had two father figures. One was highly educated and poor all his
life, and the other uneducated, but learned the secrets of wealth.
Kiyosaki had to learn whose advice worked and why. Sound principles and
easy reading, this book makes a lot of sense, but comes up short when it
comes to what to do with it after you make it.
Freedom of Simplicity, Richard Foster, (Harper Collins
- One of the best authors on the subject, Richard
Foster discusses issues of simplifying life in a high tech world, with
many practical issues discussed. One of the major books that changed my
life and priorities.
Safe Strategies for Financial
Freedom, Van Tharp, D.R.
Barton, Jr., and Steve Sjuggerud, McGraw Hill, c.2004.
- This book is an
excellent resource on discovering how financial freedom is within the
grasp of anyone. Wealthy people have learned that money can work for
them, instead of them working for it all their lives. This is a
practical book I gave to all my children to read.
Beatitude, Earl V. Pierce,
Flemming H. Revell Co, c.1947.
- This out of print
book is about the best of all books on the Christian use of money and
life. The primary message of the Bible is that we are made in God’s
image to give and are blessed by giving. If you can find a copy, it is
worth having in any permanent library.
Principle, Randy Alcorn,
Multnomah Publishing, 2001.
- This book focuses
on the eternal benefits which are based on Biblical teaching.
Rich God, Poor
God, Dr. John Avanzini, Abel

us to live in poverty, but wants to bless us both spiritually and
economically. This book balances both in a challenging way so we don’t
put God in a box, and allow Him to provide in greater ways than we ever
Your Money Counts,
Howard Dayton, Crown Financial Ministries 1996.
- This is a
biblical guide to earning, spending, investing, giving, and getting out
of debt that is the best resource I know.
A Life God
Rewards, Bruce Wilkinson,
Multnomah Publishing, 2002. “Why everything you do today matters
book presents in detail the biblical teaching of rewards that is so
misunderstood and ignored by the Church today.
