    I doubt that anyone would disagree that money is a major concern in the world today. We either want more of it, are overwhelmed by the responsibility of it or afraid of what to do with it. Finances are such an important part of our lives that many success trainers recommend that we go to at least one financial conference/seminar per year. Even, Christians, struggle with how to manage their finances. Herein, lies the mission of Roger W. Gum, author of the book Financial Faithfulness.

Even, Christians, struggle with how to manage their finances. Herein, lies the mission of Roger W. Gum, author of the book Financial Faithfulness. A Summary of Book In Financial Faithfulness, Roger provides a concise overview of biblical principles that can be applied by the believer in order for them to honour God in their finances. He begin the book by explaining the need for a biblical perspective, the purpose of money, and making wise decisions. Subsequent chapters go into key topics such as taxes, debt, investing, budgets (spending) plans. He concludes with discussing the need for the believer to consider how to leave a legacy. My Opinion This book provides a good starting point for any believer who needs to get some foundational questions answered in the area of finances. In addition, it can be used for group study. Roger has indicated that he would be continue to make presentations on this topic with the book as a resource. This is good sense. I give it 4 stars!

    I recieved this book from Goodreads. If I could have given 10 stars I would have. This book is that amazing. It is easy to read, easy to understand and easy to implement. Unlike other financial books, this is truly written with a Biblical basis. This book easily sets out God's plan for how we are to manage His money and the rewards we can expect if we follow God's plan. Financial Faithfulness is written in a logical order.

It is easy to read, easy to understand and easy to implement. Unlike other financial books, this is truly written with a Biblical basis. This book easily sets out God's plan for how we are to manage His money and the rewards we can expect if we follow God's plan. Financial Faithfulness is written in a logical order. He takes you from learning all money is God's and we are His managers through giving and the benefits to investing and long term financial planning. Mr. Gum explains each section, then presents the Biblical basis and finishes with providing practical suggestions and stories. This book is truly God inspired. My favorite parts of this book are learning about how all money is ours and we are God's managers. The need to refrain from debt and why, but this book does not stop there it assists you in getting out of debt realistically and Biblically. It also addresses saving and the how and why of preparing for the future. I love this book and will refer to it frequently as I learn to manage God's money and trust God to care for me. This book would be excellent for anyone wanting to take control of their financial life while giving glory to God.

    Roger Gum's "Financial Faithfulness: Unlocking Scripture to Avoid the Distraction of Money" is a look at money and finances from a Biblical perspective. Chapters cover topics such as investing in retirement, taxes, spending plans, becoming debt free and so on. It is really quite an informative book.

Chapters cover topics such as investing in retirement, taxes, spending plans, becoming debt free and so on. It is really quite an informative book. All too often in modern society, we see people from all classes resorting to unethical behaviors, including causing harm to their fellow man, for just a few dollars more. Greed has lead to wars, criminal activity and the destruction of families. Most married couples break up due to communication or financial matters. Money often consumes people and keeps them from seeing what is truly important, being a good steward. As the newer adage goes, "You Never See a U-Haul Following a Hearse". In the words of Mr. Gum, "As you begin to see riches from a biblical perspective, you will experience the financial freedom and peace of mind that everyone desires, but few find." I would recommend this book to anyone seeking the financial freedom and peace of mind that Mr. Gum is referring to, as it is something that we could all benefit from.

    Financial Faithfulness by Roger Gum unlocks scripture to help guide you on the right path to financial happiness. He explains that work is a good thing but not to let money be a distraction and loose focus on what is important in life. Roger goes on to explain that "God owns it all and we are just faithful stewards on this short time on earth." The key is to find a happy balance in work, faith, and family.
