Money touches everything in our lives. It communicates our values whether we want it to or not, often simultaneously resulting in what we prefer and what we regret. Those who wish to be thoughtful about how they reflect God's image in all things, do well to think through what they believe about earning and using money. This volume walks through a logical progression of how to think and act in regards to money, and provides scores of scenarios for discussion and application. ""Don't be fooled by the title. This book is about so much more than money. Mark walks us through Scripture, history, theology, and real life stories to challenge and inspire us to be faithful, joyful stewards of life. This is a wonderfully thorough treatment of money and its place in the Christian life. If readers will complete Mark's suggested action steps at the end of each chapter, their life will be forever changed...and blessed "" --R. Scott Rodin, PhD, President, The Steward's Journey; Author of The Steward Leader ""Consider this book your toolbox to reassess how you view and use money compared to God's values. Identifying money's godlike strength in our culture, it offers seven church practices to encourage first fruits living. Vincent gives us a way to look at our personal priorities, then reset our lives as God's representatives committed to generous, grace-filled living. With case studies, questions, and a leader's guide, it's an excellent book for study groups. --Betsy Schwarzentraub, Author of Afire With God: Becoming Spirited Stewards ""The Fourth Edition of this classic is passionate, challenging, and contextually current. The original book, reflecting Giving Project theology, grounded my former national Stewardship Development ministry and informed my research on giving. The congregation I now serve has heard vintage Vincent on money's God-like powers and first fruits living in sermons, offering invitations, and stewardship teaching. I am delighted to be able to share this updated version with them."" --Barbara L. Fullerton, co-author with Mark L. Vincent of Teaching a Christian View of Money (Revised and Expanded), a web-based methodology to accompany A Christian View of Money ""In A Christian View of Money, Vincent provides a biblically based, theologically rich guide to thoughtful conversations among Christ-followers about attitudes toward and use of the wealth entrusted to them. Vincent's tone is celebrative and joyful. No guilt here."" --Rebekah Basinger, stewardship educator and consultant, Dillsburg, PA Mark L.
