Review by the staff of Dynamic Steward

Bestselling author, founder, and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries, Randy
Alcorn is also one of our feature writers in the sermon section of this issue of Dynamic Steward. He has authored numerous books, including the stewardship classic Money, Possessions, and Eternity.

As I read The Treasure Principle I was impressed with two things. Firstly, Randy believes and practices ?what he preaches.? I was moved by his honest, personal journey in joyful giving. Secondly, I could not help but look more seriously at my own life and attitude toward giving.

The author lists six specific ?treasure principle keys?: 1) God owns everything. I’m His money manager; 2) My heart always goes where I put God’s money; 3) Heaven, not Earth, is my home; 4) I should live not for the dot but for the line; 5) Giving is the only antidote to materialism; and 6) God prospers me not to raise my standard of living, but to raise my standard of giving.

The biblical passages are well chosen and spiritually meaningful. This small volume will challenge the Christian who is serious about allowing Christ to be Lord of all, which, of course, includes the material side of life.
