My rating: An excellent book on stewardship and supernatural provision, well worth one’s time and study.

 

I received an advanced reading copy of this book from Library Thing in exchange for a review.

Had I realized what was in store for me on its pages, I would have read this book much sooner. Stephen De Silva writes the truths I have been needing to find, confirming some things I have understood but haven’t seen or known how to set in motion. He makes it very clear about prosperity and the lack of it – and why – especially dealing with the spirits of Poverty and Mammon.

Chapter titles are:
Purpose
Trouble With Money
Spirit of Poverty
Trust and Faith
Dreaming
Bound in Spirit
Spirit of Mammon
Dominion
The Art of Purpose

This is an excellent book, easy to read and understand. Stephen De Silva teaches biblical truth in a comfortable, sincere manner, explaining the spiritual problems that underlie financial ones. It is not the secret to immediate gratification, but lays out the steps to understanding the financial benefits explained in the Bible and how to get there.

For anyone struggling to handle their finances, or simply wanting to know how to live in the provision of God, this book shows the way. Money and the Prosperous Soul is also very suitable for group study.

This is a book I recommend if you want help in becoming financially successful.

You can find Money and the Prosperous Soul – Tipping the Scales of Favor and Blessing listed on my BUY THE BOOK! page.


Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

  1. I love thunderstorms, too. They are powerful, but beautiful; terrifying, but awe-inspiring (from the safety of my comfy house.)

    I agree – they declare God’s attributes and character to us, and remind us just how small and powerless we are.

    Thanks,

  2. This book “Money and the prosperous soul” isn’t just about the monetary.
    It also relates to that walk with Jesus and how to improve it.
    To not only change your thought processes about money but also how you relate to GOD and the bill of goods you have bought into and need to reaccess.
