This was very appropriate for this time of year. I know God allows things to happen for a reason. We look at Christmas as a time for giving. We give to others all the time but, how often and how much do we give to God. In this book the author takes us on a short course of tithing. He started off defining stewardship and giving examples. God promises to bless us. There are examples all throughout the Bible of God doing just this. The author points out that tithing is a privilege and that it is a symbol of total service to the Lord. It show our willingness to serve him wholly. For me Chapter 6 was the most important in the entire book. It was full of budgets, and worksheets and all the things I truly need to get myself back on track. I have no credit cards. My philosophy has always been if I didn't have the cash then I didn't need it. Unfortunately this book made me look at my spending habits. When I got paid the first thing I would do is buy books. It didn't matter that I had 300 unread books on my shelf, I always bought more. I would buy 2-4 books a month. That may not seem like much but when you have nothing to start with and you are spending what you don't have it adds up. This is a book I will definitely recommend to friends. It is a book that Christian and Non-Christian alike can benefit from. I am thankful the author sent me a copy for review, even if I did lose the review.
