Ambassador-Emerald, Intl. The Love of Money: How to Build Wealth and Not Be Corrupted

Many Christians are familiar with the story Jesus told about the rich young ruler. He said a camel would sooner pass through the eye of a needle than the rich man would enter the kingdom of Heaven. What some people don't realize, when it comes to finances, is that in the same book of the Bible Jesus also told the parable of the three servants given gifts by their master according to their abilities. When the master returned from his travels he demanded an accounting of those gifts. The master praised the two who had multiplied their gifts, but cast the third out into the darkness and gnashing of teeth because he had not grown his gift. The Love of Money not only explains that it's OK to be a Christian and build wealth, it teaches you how to do it effectively while focusing your efforts on serving God.

This book had some good ideas for young people trying to balance debts, mortgages and income. Where I felt it was lacking was in advice on managing money already saved for retirement. I was looking for ways to invest my money ethically, and maybe different ideas for how to think about money. He does not talk about how to avoid investing in arms manufacturers, or environmentally destructive mining companies. This book ends on a disappointingly homophobic note. I guess the author wants to feel better about his own life choices by putting down others.
