Book and CD ROM

Description:
Making Money Work: A Christian Guide For Personal Finance (book & CD ROM) combines the power of Biblical principles with modern day technology to empower people to become better stewards of God's resources.  Extensive scriptural references are the basis for these principles. Making Money Work has the goal of helping people develop a closer relationship with Jesus Christ while becoming better stewards of God's resources. Thirty-nine chapters cover topics such as "Tithing/Giving", "Debt Management", "Saving/Goal Setting", "Retirement Funds", and "Wills, Trusts, and Estate Planning".

“Making Money Work is a tool I wish I had in my hands many years ago. It is comprehensive and thorough, yet inspirational and encouraging. Bill Page has written a useful guide for Christians of all ages”--Kitti Murray, Author of “A Long Way Off.”

Making Money Work is vital for anyone wanting to be a good steward of the resources God has entrusted to them”--Daniel C. Orndoff, CPA, MTX (Certified Public Accountant, Masters of Taxation).

“The information is very useful and people can get a ‘handle’ on their financial situation if they are willing to read and apply the principles”—Colin E. Blalock, CPA, PFS, CFP (Certified Public Accountant, Personal Financial Specialist, Certified Financial Planner).
