Money issues are among the toughest areas of life today. Society is continually bombarding us with the latest ‘must have’ item, while the lowest estimate for UK household debt is over £8,000 (not including mortgages!). The debt trap causes huge stress, humiliation and anguish, and can destroy people’s lives.
This booklet examines these issues from a biblical viewpoint and offers practical guidance for steering a safe course through the financial maze, including a special word for students.
