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

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

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.
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.
