Abstract:

"'In over twenty-five years of working with money the second most recurring theme in the Bible I have found nothing more lacking than a truly helpful Christian viewpoint and spirit of giving. A Christian View of Money provides the essential theological undergirding to working with money' -- Don McClanen, Ministry of Money ... 'Anabaptists have long understood that how one lives, rather than what he or she says, is the most accurate description of what one believes. This is particularly true in the case of the Christian's use of money. The theological foundation for a Christian's view of money is so clearly stated in A Christian View of Money. This volume could profitably be used as a new believer's guide to faith and doctrine. Vincent refuses to bless either avarice or accumulation. Many will be challenged by his clear direction for change' -- Lynn Miller.' 'I think about it a lot. How and when I might get more of it. What I will do with it once I get it. How much of it I want to share. How much I want to keep for myself. What I would do with it if I suddenly came into a large amount. Money consumes my waking moments and consumes my dreams' -- Author. 'A Christian View of Money takes the neat principle that everything belongs to God, and shows just how untidy it can be. Living a financially faithful life is not smooth, but filled with rough turns and complicated decisions. Believers can't ignore it. Vincent takes the Bible's wealth of teachings about money and applies them to my life today' -- Sherrie Kornoelje, KDC Servant Institute ..."--Back cover.
