In a thoroughly researched and extensively updated classic called Money, Possessions, and Eternity, Randy Alcorn illustrates the necessity of rethinking our perspectives on money and possessions ”“ Christians must view them as God’s provision for our good, the good of others, and His glory.
Alcorn presents a biblical and comprehensive view of money and possessions, including the following:
”¢ Why is money so important to God?
”¢ Is prosperity theology right or wrong?
”¢ How can we be liberated from materialism?
”¢ What should we do about debt?
”¢ How much does God want us to give?
”¢ How can we best help the poor and reach the lost?
”¢ What about gambling? investing? insurance? saving? retirement? inheritance?
”¢ How can we leave our children a true heritage?
”¢ How can we use money in ways that God rewards?
