it was ok
bookshelves: theology

I picked this book up used from Harvest Logos bookstore and I'm afraid that I'm going to donate it right back. I was looking for a resource to help me discover what the Bible says about money. While this little book has plenty of Bible references, it's essentially a glorified sermon on generosity with various proof texts attached. Mr. Alcorn's conculsion is good, but I think he oversimplifies the topic and fails to connect it with other aspects of money and stewardship.

Jonathan It sounds like the book you were looking for was Money, Possessions, and Eternity. The Treasure Principle is a much shorter book that doesn't discuss all of the topics MP&E does.
