Overview

Dr. Keith Reeves presents a biblical theology of wealth, showing that although the Old Testament often views wealth positively and the New Testament negatively, there is a theme of stewardship throughout. Dr. Reeves leads you through key biblical passages and discusses such topics as saving, debt, investment, vocation and more. He also presents case studies showing how biblical guidelines apply to a number of specific life situations.
