Publisher's Summary

Is what we do with our money really any of God’s business? Does God mind if we spend money on ourselves? What about debt? Savings? Retirement? How much does God expect us to give? God cares immensely that we manage money with an eternal perspective. Scripture’s teaching on this subject practically screams for our attention. In fact, Jesus says more about money than any other topic—including Heaven and Hell. In a simple, easy-to-follow format, Randy Alcorn addresses exactly what the Bible says about how we should handle the money and possessions God owns and entrusts to our management. Filled with helpful Scripture, Managing God’s Money is the perfect resource for anyone interested in gaining a solid biblical understanding of financial stewardship. It’s great for groups and churches, too!

Best book I've read on financial stewardship.

This is higher level stuff. Randy is working at the 10,000 foot view. Not the tactical level like a Dave Ramsey book. This is a lot of the why and not so much the how. A fantastic read to set a good baseline.

Biblically Sound

This is what is needed in today's world, for the good to do something of eternal value with the money entrusted to them.

A good read for Christians-God's purpose for money

Good read. A little vague on why Christians ought to prosper. Gives good advise in giving for the kingdom.

Convicting

We who live in America are conditioned to think primarily of ourselves and what we can get to satisfy the yearning in our souls. If that’s how you got here then I can’t strongly enough recommend this book.
If you’re here out of curiosity then I can’t strongly enough recommend this book.

Let your heart be changed by the God who loves you unconditionally.

Biblically correct

Some of his thoughts on credit cards were personal and not biblical. It really stuck out to me as he was defending his own use of them amd seemingly making it ok. The issue is, most people don't use then correctlt, and in turn are not managing God's money God's way. The book was great though and had a ton of great insights of how the bible tells us to handle money.

Real eye opener

I learnt a lot and it was a real eye opener on how we need to manage His money, it is not ours to hord and collect for ourselves. Thanks for sharing your insight Randy.

This is a great resource on Stewardship

This is a continuation and expansion on his book The Treasure Principle. Does bring to light other concepts like old testament requirement to give was 23 3% per year average. You there yet to experience the joy of giving?

One of the best books I’ve ever read!

This is definitively a book I will be coming back to review regularly. It has opened my eyes and understand that it’s all about giving and helping others if you have the means. It makes me feel happy about giving now and not wait until I retire to help others.

learnt a lot

I do not subscribe to all the theological points here especially concerning health, because it is part of the atonement not something we are to give up on as if it isn't God's will if it doesn't manifest immediately. Also he lays the charge wrongly at God's door on several occasions eg by suggesting God takes away part of our money if we don't tithe when in fact that is a work of the enemy- God promised to "rebuke the devourer" for our sakes if we do tithe, which is very different! But there is a great deal of wisdom in this book and I do really wish I could have learnt it a lot earlier on! It's very interesting to compare several Christian books on finances and find a balanced path through e.g in terms of when to save, invest, give and spend. There is much to learn and Randy Alcorn has great insights especially concerning the eternal reward of giving. I would like to have read more about God's miraculous provision in this book but am getting that from another....the Bible has many many things to say on finances and so far it seems a number of Christian authors have to be read together to try and get the whole application of Scripture. With listening ears to the Word of God for yourself this is very worth the read/listen.

Rocky start

The beginning of the book was kinda Rocky.
But I really like the ending.

maybe it was because the author was kinda nervous and scared of being the book.
so he tried to ease into it.

Wow. What an important book! Big thumbs up..

I really appreciated listening to this. I've had the book for years but didn't get through it - probably because I wasn't really ready.

Randy Alcorn in this book is just outlining the biblical truths found in Scripture: the money we have is God's, we need to manage, not waste, give and live joyfully and responsibly with an eternal perspective. Our theology of money has often drawn on the world's perspectives- not God's.

Let us turn around, change our thinking and change and live the way God intended- as HIS money managers. This book is an excellent means of learning: grounded in God's word, practical, and the author sounds like he is living by what he believes..strongly recommended! Oh.. it was narrated so effectively, thankyou! This listener is going on to Randy's " The Treasure Principle". 🙂🙏👍

Good book

This was a good book with a good narrator. The author focuses predominately on the giving aspect of stewardship which from experience is the most joyful. It doesn't contain many practical aspects to stewardship in helping people dealing with their finances but a very valuable book indeed.
