Jesus taught more often on money than he did on love or on heaven and hell combined. Why? It’s because money is one of the chief competitors for our affections. “You cannot serve God and money,” he warned. How, then, should Christians view and use money? How should they view and participate in economic systems? In How Should I Think about Money?, Dr. R. C. Sproul offers much-needed biblical answers to these questions, and in so doing, provides clarity on an important issue in the lives of Christians.

“A steward in the ancient world was a person who was given the responsibility and authority to rule over the affairs of the household.” (Page 3)

“Broadly understood, economics has to do not only with money or taxes or business but with the management of resources.” (Page 2)

“The English word economics and economy come from the Greek word oikonomia, which is made up of two parts: oikos, the word for ‘house’ or ‘household,’ and nomos, the word for ‘law.’ So, oikos and nomos together literally mean ‘house law.’” (Pages 2–3)

“Human beings were commanded to be fruitful and multiply. This was a command for productivity, which has stewardship implications. Thus, the concern for stewardship is rooted in creation.” (Page 4)
