How to be Rich by Andy Stanley

This is a smaller paperback designed to go with a DVD study.

Pastor Andy Stanley walks readers through the typical Christian understanding of money, tithing and generosity.

I can remember an argument against tithing because a person could give so much more if they waited to give in one lump sum at retirement. But, like Andy explains, tithing isn't about the amount a person gives - it's about the "heart"; it's about trusting God.

While I have read many books on finances and Dave Ramsey's ideas, this book is more pastoral in tone.

What sets this apart is the fantastic stories that bookend the chapters. These illustrations are both interesting and informative. Do you know the origins of the vaccination process? You will after reading this book and you'll be able to connect that story with taking care of your finances.

Andy is a hit and miss author for me. Some books I can't get enough of and others I just can't get into. This book was a quick, fun read.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Zondervan Publishing.
