This is the second edition of the text for those interested in studying personal financial stewardship in a practical, in-depth, Christian perspective, whether in the classroom, as part of a Bible study, or at a financial seminar. This book will make a difference in your life because it is based on the most important book, the Bible.
You will find many good Christian financial books on the market, but none that go to the depth of this one in explaining what the Bible really has to say about money, stewardship, giving, insurance, investing, and other topics. Whether you are a young person just learning about finances or one who is an elder with many years of experience you will learn a great deal that will help you to be the steward God wants you to be and at the same time gain the financial freedom He wants you to have.

I call her my Resplendent Bride because I have eyes and ears and for a time she even let me hold her hand.
Yet although her time among us was cut short by cancer, I still feel the afterglow of her resplendence. We were married less than three years. I buried my heart and my wedding ring in St. Louis.
We walked through the shadowlands hand-in-hand until she drew her final breath. She suffered gracefully in a world that does not know what to do with pain.
The Christian faith has always been about death and resurrection, for those twin truths were the reason the Lord Jesus sojourned among us. We have forgotten the old way—we have forgotten how to suffer and die well.
Danielle was my Resplendent Bride, and the church is Christ’s. I invite you to walk through this broken house so that you may know our small part in the divine love story.
As King David said in Psalm 27:13, “. . . I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!” and if not, I know the resurrection fast approaches.
Come, won’t you sit amongst the graves with me, and dream of Resurrection Day?
