The Treasure Principle Book Review

Great Book!

The Treasure Principle was extremely insightful. I was pleasantly surprised at how plainly the Bible explains our possessions on earth and how if we’re willing to accept our tasks and roles on earth regarding our possessions how much more blessed we would be.

Alcorn clearly defines why churches mention the ‘10%’, gives the biblical definition and goes far beyond what we can do with that as servants. There are no miracle solutions to God’s gifts to us or how to get rich quick which I appreciated because I strongly dislike theologians (term used lightly) who try to make us think that if we give, we’ll get while on earth. I feel these are promises nobody on earth can make come true and Alcorn is fully aware of that.

Randy Alcorn helps us understand in this little handbook, how to begin a journey of giving in little step increments so there is no room for misinterpretation of what he’s trying to get across to us. He uses his life examples in certain places and I’ve learned a lot about him and his family that I did not know but have humbled myself to prayer for them.

Read this book with an open heart and pray that God will speak to you through Andy’s text and you will see giving in an entirely new light. Enjoy!

This book was a free gift in exchange for my honest opinion of it provided by Waterbrook/Multnomah Publishing Group.

About Me

Anthem, Arizona, United States
I'm a caregiver to my husband who is permanently disabled. Life can be a bit challenging when it's not really about me at all. I've got two boys, 18 and 3 and they're both an added handful. I spend my spare time trying to keep from being bored and try to make it about me, life and socializing with others about how they spend their time. Hence, the birth of this blog!
