What People Are Saying About God and Money

John and Greg realize what everyone should know-that middle-class Americans are among the richest people in world history. It’s time for Christ-followers to understand that God has bigger purposes than increasing our standard of living-He wants us to increase our standard of giving.
— Randy Alcorn, bestselling author (from the Foreword of God and Money)
This is one of the most thoughtful and well researched books on giving that I have had the pleasure of reading. The frameworks presented in the book can be used by people at all stages of experiencing the joy of generosity.
— Waters Davis, President of National Christian Foundation Houston
In God and Money, Greg Baumer and John Cortines bring us a watershed work on generosity. They take us on their personal journey that is fresh, entertaining and extremely practical . In their 7 Principles of Wealth and Giving they dig deeply into the heart of the matter. This is a must read for all of us that have been entrusted with much...and that is just about all of us! The wisdom found in what is written here and the truths found in this book will, if applied, change the way you think about both wealth and generosity - it certainly did for me. To find a life filled with joy and an eternity filled with the rewards that can only be found by being a faithful steward, read this book...then, read it again.
— David Wills, President of the National Christian Foundation
With uncommon transparency, John and Greg provide a Gospel-centered and practical perspective on wealth. Through a leveling critique of comfortable Christianity, they challenge us to wholeheartedly pursue the joy of generosity. Read this book and you will be inspired, convicted and thinking differently about using what God has given you for Kingdom impact.
— Peter Greer, President & CEO of HOPE International and co-author of Mission Drift
In God and Money, Baumer and Cortines challenge Christians readers to consider afresh what generosity looks like in light of the Scripture’s radical teaching and the day of affluence in which we live. Whether or not you agree with all their conclusions or personal practices, you will be challenged and inspired.
— Robert L. Plummer, Ph.D., Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
I greatly enjoyed reading God and Money! God used the framework Greg and John described to challenge my perspective and practice of generosity. I realized in reading their book that my personal bias is more saver and spender than servant. What I truly desire to be is a fully surrendered servant of Jesus. This book gave me practical frameworks to move in that direction.
— Todd Harper, President, Generous Giving
The mission of Harvard Business School is ‘to educate leaders who make a difference in the world,’ and in John and Greg that mission has been fulfilled abundantly. It has been my privilege to be their teacher, their colleague and now their friend; and I wish them Godspeed as they take the transformative message found in God and Money out to their community and to the world beyond. I have learned to expect great things from them, and they have yet to disappoint.
