Family money matters

John TempleSKU: FF2037 ISBN: 9781846252037



How we manage our family finances is always an important issue, but is particularly topical given the West's financial crisis. As Christians, our lives should demonstrate different values from those of the world around us, so what should our financial priorities be? How should we plan financially for the future? Should we ever get into debt? In this thoroughly practical book designed for the layperson, John Temple describes the secular economic order of the Western world and then establishes biblical principles of home finance.

‘I am thankful for Temple’s book. Here is a man who loves God, loves the wisdom of the Word and is zealous to help you build a biblical worldview of your money and how you use it. What is even better is that he will not only challenge the motives of your heart and tell you how to think, he will also tell you what to do.’
—Paul David Tripp, author of Age of Opportunity.

'Did you ever long for a simple, short, wise guide from a Christian perspective on how to handle family finances? John Temple has provided it in 'Family Finances', which covers the basics of biblical views on stewardship, heart-motivation, and generosity, as well as practical advice about living within your means, establishing a family budget, and addressing questions related to investments, insurance, debt, and much more. This little book is packed full of biblical principles and practicalities from a brother who lives what he writes.'
—Joel R. Beeke, President of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

‘Buy it, read it, implement the principles! I thank God I was taught these principles from when I was young and so today my family is debt free – we are now teaching our children the same lessons.’
