Godonomics: How to Save Our Country--And Protect Your Wallet--Through Biblical Principles of Finance (Paperback)
"Godonomics "is an incredible comparison of biblical economics and the culture. A real eye-opener.
Josh McDowell, coauthor of "Undaunted "and "The Unshakable Truth"
God's Solution to Every Financial Crisis
Those who fail to learn from history may not get a chance to repeat it. Some economists have said the years of robust economic growth and expanding opportunity are gone for good. But are they reading the right text?
"Godonomics" explores the core biblical teachings that provide the only practical, dependable solution to economic uncertainty. And now this innovative approach is enhanced by a new guide to help parents mentor their children from grade school to young adulthood. Every season of parenting gives you a new opportunity to equip your children with the vision and tools they need to lay the foundation for financial success.
By following Scripture's guidelines we can ensure the financial well-being of our families no matter what might happen on the national or global stage. Let "Godonomics" show you why a strong work ethic, saving over borrowing, generous giving, and the reduction of entitlements combine to form the only path to economic stability and financial health.
