Welcome to the Blog Tour for the Your Finances God's Way book and workbook by Scott LaPierre, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Your Finances God's Way
Author: Scott LaPierre
Publisher: Harvest House
Release Date: May 3, 2022
Genre: Christian living – nonfiction
The book covers a lot of topics from a biblical point of view but I would say that the main point is that God seeks to transform your heart rather than just your finances.
The book covers a lot of topics from a biblical point of view but I would say that the main point is that God seeks to transform your heart rather than just your finances. This is important because if your heart isn't transformed then you can't truly change your financial situation or any other aspect of life because all sin comes from the heart (Mark 7:21-23). Scott LaPierre makes sure to continuously put God and scripture first is everything discussed.
The subtitle for the book is "A Biblical Guide to Making the Best Use of Your Money."
The book is divided into 16 chapters
- Stewardship and Faithfulness
- God's Kindness and Severity
- Money is the Foundation of Faithfulness
- The Dangers of Loving Money
- Learning from a Rich Fool
- How to Avoid Being a Rich Fool
- Give Willingly
- Give Sacrificially
- God's Generosity Encourages Giving Cheerfully
- Good Stewardship Toward the Poor
- Spending Problems Versus an Income Problem
- God's View of Debt
- Avoiding and Eliminating Debt
- Saving the Right and Wrong Way
- Retiring Well
- The Greatest Riches
Each chapter deals with a different money principle and the associated problems it can cause. Being a poor or lazy steward is wickedness. The author really doesn't mince words or coddle the reader in his truths from Jesus' parables and examples. Finally, LaPierre offers proposals on what to do about this problem. God expects us to take action with money and the talents he has given us.
You can read the book straight through or read a chapter when you are struggling with the particular principle being addressed in that chapter.
LaPierre begins by sharing his own financial story (always helps to know that your author has found success in what they are writing about). He then tells us why he is writing this book (and it is not to get rich!).
The workbook is a study guide that makes a good resource for small groups who want to discuss these issues together.
This would be perfect as a solo or group study guide. It includes questions to discuss, a summary of main points, and questions designed for self reflection and to change your point of view. Or at least acknowledge what your understanding of things are. The book is easy to follow and organized in a way that makes it ideal for small groups.
It’s also easy enough just to work through on your own as an individual or with your family if you don’t want to go the small group route. Each chapter is only a few pages long so it can be read in one sitting, which means you could finish it in about two weeks even if you only read 15 minutes every day.
This is a very well-researched and biblically accurate book about personal finances.
Your Finances God's Way is a very well-researched and biblically accurate book about personal finances. In the book, Scott explains that money is a tool that we can use for good or bad. He also gives a biblical perspective on financial management and stress relief from debt. Scott even writes about generosity and helping those in need, making it clear that we are to be generous with our time, talents and treasure. It is an excellent devotional for anyone who wants to learn more about personal financial management through a biblical perspective.
I would definitely recommend reading this book if you're looking for an easy way to understand personal finance from a Christian perspective.
I received a copy of this book complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.
