Biblical Principles for Success in Personal Finance

by Rich Broth

I've read a lot of books on business and finance. Sometimes you have to sift through some concepts that are, at best, questionable. With this book you don't have to do that as much. Author Rich Broth is well qualified to discuss the issue of personal finances and he does it in a manner that takes the mystique out of money matters. This book is timely. Boy is it timely! It challenges you to change your mindset and poor habits about handling money. It gives practical suggestions, (complete with application tools) that are rooted in strong biblical principles and offers the average reader a greater appreciation of concepts such as budgeting, investment instruments, getting out of debt and financial planning. You have to be patient to read it though (519 pages) but I'm sure you'll be ‘richer' for having taken the journey. No pun intended.
