This practical and refreshing theology of money contains topical and Scripture indexes, a study guide, and five helpful appendixes.

Randy Alcorn presents a biblical and comprehensive view of money and possessions, including the following:

  • Why is money so important to God?
  • How can we be liberated from materialism?
  • What should we do about debt?
  • How much does God want us to give?
  • What about gambling? Investing? Insurance? Saving? Retirement? Inheritance?

  • 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 classic, Randy Alcorn shows us how to view these things accurately―as God’s provision for our good, the good of others, and his glory.

    Top Highlights

    “A. W. Tozer said, ‘Listen to no man who has not listened to God.’” (source)

    “Jesus did not and does not call all his disciples to liquidate their possessions, give away all their money, and leave home. But Jesus knew that money was the rich young man’s god. He also knew that none of us can enthrone the true God unless in the process we dethrone our other gods. If Christ is not Lord over our money and possessions, then he is not our Lord. Just as Jesus gauged Zacchaeus’s true spiritual condition by his willingness to part with his money, so he gauged the rich young ruler’s true spiritual condition by his unwillingness to part with his money.” (source)

    “Mammon is a false god. It is antichrist in the true meaning of the word. The Greek preposition anti- does not fundamentally mean ‘against’ but ‘instead of.’ Hence, antichrist is not just ‘one who is against Christ’ but ‘one who is a substitute for Christ.’ When he named it Mammon, Christ personified money to portray its danger. Mammon is a god-substitute, a false messiah.” (source)

    “Because we all will eventually give an account of our lives to God (Romans 14:12; 2 Corinthians 5:10), one day everyone must answer these questions: Where did it all go? What did I spend it on? What has been accomplished for eternity through my use of all this wealth?” (source)

    “The everyday choices I make regarding money and possessions are of eternal consequence.” (source)
