"This book is for anyone who wants to steward well what God has given them." -Rick Warren, Author of The Purpose Driven Life, Senior Pastor, Saddleback Church.
Once upon a time, a faithful, God-fearing boy fell in love with the girl of his dreams
As a young man, Pastor Steve Perry passionately followed an anti-wealth philosophy as he moved toward a Christian life. He held the not-uncommon belief that poverty was more virtuous than prosperity and poor people were closer to God. But God had a different plan. When Perry found himself in love and the girl of his dreams turned out to have a wealthy family the accompanying internal struggle forced him to reconcile his beliefs with his reality. Of course, he turned to God for a deeper understanding of how to integrate wealth and faith. For many Christians, wealth is accompanied by a certain measure of guilt. In Living With Wealth Without Losing Your Soul, Perry shows that justly earned wealth is as much a gift from God as any of His other gifts and, far from being the root of all evil, money simply magnifies who a person really is. With exegesis, practical life examples, and his trademark humor, Perry suggests that wealthy Christians need not be stealthy Christians, but instead can steward their wealth in order to magnify their Christian lives and, in the end, come closer to God.
