I found this book to be extremely beneficial for me. The specific examples and dollar amounts the authors used, along with their emphasis on spiritual principles, make the question of "How much do I need to keep?" become a realistic and practical question to ask. The book has inspired me not only to examine my thoughts and practices on money, but also has given me a new joy and anticipation for future giving. This topic is one that is hard for pastors to address, as it seems self-interested, but I feel that God has new levels of satisfaction in Him in store for those that give Him full control of this area of our lives. If the movement needs to start from the business leaders, then I think John and Greg have us off to a strong start. I'm excited to see the change it produces in this generation and in our world. I highly recommend this book for everyone, as we all have to stewart well the resources God has blessed us with.

This book was a little slow to start with but I've got to say it hit me like a ton of bricks about midway through. I've recently quadrupled my income and became debt free. While reading this book we were contemplating the purchase of a 5k sq ft house and have put that on hold.
The 2nd thing that really affected me was the idea of putting big chunks of money into one ministry as opposed to small chunks of money into several. Right now we give a 1000 here and a 1000 there. There is a missionary we support realized if we just pull all of our money we could contribute over 10% of his annual cost. I'm also forming a small accountability group among Christian business owners I know.
This is one of those books I read out of obligation initially. I'm glad that I did it has affected my life.
