Godonomics: How to Save Our Country - And Protect Your Wallet - Through Biblical Principles of Finance (Hardcover)
God's solution to America's economic crisis Saving America's economy is not a conservative-versus-liberal issue, it is a biblical issue. National leaders have failed to pull the country out of its financial tailspin because both major parties are working from the wrong text. For a nation to achieve stability and enjoy lasting economic health, it needs to adopt the economic principles set forth in the Bible. Godonomics uncovers the core teachings from God's Word that offer the only workable solution to our nation's economic back-slide. Biblical principles uphold the superiority of free-market capitalism, which produced history's highest standard of living and established the United States as an unrivaled superpower. But forces are at work today, even in the church, that seek to enslave our nation in a socialistic system. Now you can speak out--using God's Word--against false teachings that endanger your livelihood and the future of America. Let Godonomics show you God's requirements for financial success--in your own life and in the affairs of our nation. By following Scripture's economic principles, you can ensure your family's financial wellbeing even if America falls into a deepening crisis. And if we act together, it is not too late to reverse the decline. "Godonomics is a thoughtful critique of the theories that control the world of commerce and shape the lives of men and nations. Chad Hovind challenges us to reassess doing business as usual."
--Dr. Peter A. Lillback, president of Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia "Chad Hovind offers a creative and compelling case for the constitutional framework for government. He also provides practical fi nancial principles that will help you make wise decisions with your money."
--Shane F. Krauser, author of Your Nation to Save, director of the American Academy for Constitutional Education "Godonomics is an incredible comparison of biblical economics and the culture. A real eye-opener."
--Josh D. McDowell, popular speaker, coauthor of Undaunted and The Unshakable Truth "Chad Hovind brings a reasonable voice to the convinced and the unconvinced. Godonomics applies God's wisdom on economics both to individuals and nations. You will learn about the Bible's prescription to secure our nation's future economic health."
--David Barton, founder and president of WallBuilders "Using God's Word regarding financial principles, you can now be bold in speaking out against false teachings. Your entire family will learn from this important book."
--Mark Whitacre, PhD, president of operations and COO of Cypress Systems Inc.
