This work is worth the money and time in buying and reading from front to end. If you do not have money, sell your possessions to buy it! Our church has read this for our mid-week fellowship and it has challenged all of us in our Christian life when it comes to the issue of finance and posessions. It has also been used by the Lord to make me re-evaluate and re-affirm the importance of what I do in this life now, in light of the reality that there is an eternity with God coming. This work is best
Money, Possessions and Eternity gives readers an eternal mindset on what money is and how to use it in a God-honoring way. Randy Alcorn expounds on the dangers of materialism, shares how we can overcome it, and explains how we can be a faithful steward of what God has given us. He also shows the Biblical view of debt, tithing, giving, saving, retiring, gambling and many more aspects of money and possessions. While not all of these topics were relevant to me in this time of life, this book impact
“God created us to love people and use things, but materialists love things and use people.”
Is that me? Do I clutch my possessions to myself or do I hold them out with open hands? Do I love people or do I use people? Powerful thoughts…
This is a challenging book, and I’m thankful I had the opportunity to read it. I would recommend it to every young adult who wants to gain a solid foundation of what money is and how they should use it according to the Word of God. I can see myself going back to this book again and again whenever I face material decisions. Randy Alcorn addressed each subject in a Biblical manner, and I feel that I now can relate to many different areas in life with better vision. In my opinion, this is a book that would be very beneficial to readers who struggle to see their possessions in light of eternity.
The only downside to this book is that it was extremely long – almost 500 pages. I think it could have been condensed at least slightly. Even so, I do recommend this book and expect to see myself studying it again in the future.
I finished this book last year and kept meaning to write a really in-depth review of it, citing every verse and backing up every point. About 50 pages of notes in I realized that that wasn’t going to happen, so here’s the extremely abbreviated version, with only quotes that well-versed (ha-ha?) Bible-reader might not be aware of.
This is a solid book with some good thoughts on just about every question a Christian might have about how to use money. Some of the side theology gets a little weird*,
