Review:

This is a book that really digs into the thorny issue of money in rigorous biblical detail. This makes it at times uncomfortable to read but also incredibly necessary and important to read.

This content in this book doesn’t alter regardless of if you consider yourself rich or poor, good with money or bad with it. This is because some of what comes out most clearly in this book, I thought, was that the reality is that for our society there is no way to avoid the poorly hidden reality that we all serve money and are worshipers of it even if we don’t really think som and even if in some ways that might be unwittingly…

A brilliant book and keenly insightful and deeply theological and yet accessible to all readers. This is not light reading (and a bigger font may have helped make the reading experience easier!) but it is good writing on a very key subject.
