Overview

In this influential book, Craig Blomberg addresses tough questions about the place and purpose of wealth and material possessions in a Christian’s life. He argues that there’s nothing wrong with making money—but we shouldn’t make money an idol.

Tracing a theology of money and possessions across the Bible’s grand narrative, Blomberg demonstrates that sharing goods and possessions is the key safeguard against greed and covetousness. He urges Christians to give sacrificially, showing how believers can participate in God’s original design for abundance and demonstrate the world-altering gospel of Christ in the process.

Are there limits on how rich we should become or on how poor we should allow others to get? What does a truly Christian economic system look like? How does the Bible’s teaching on wealth fit into the gospel? Blomberg answers crucial questions about wealth, giving, and poverty that touch on all areas of Christians’ private and public lives.
