While “health and wealth” proponents urge Christians to claim for themselves material blessings, others insist that God’s best gifts can’t be enjoyed until heaven. The truth of God’s intentions, writes acclaimed author Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, is far greater than either perspective suggests. Packed with inspiring stories, God’s Economy invites readers to step into the good life God intends his people to enjoy here and now—not a shrink-wrapped, plastic version of prosperity but a liberating approach to living that leads to genuine and lasting satisfaction. With persuasive enthusiasm, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove draws from the teachings of Jesus on money and explores five tactics for living in God’s economy of abundance. Rather than being subject to unpredictable market factors, those who live by God’s economy find their security in the richness of community and generosity. Download and start listening now!

    " For the most part I enjoyed this book, but towards the end I felt it didn't quite wrap up in a way that we could use in our day to day lives. "

    " I expected more of a social justice theory book, but I enjoyed his divergence from similar writings. His thoughts on restructuring our paradigm of this world's economy are challenging but not impractical. "

    " God DOES want you to be wealthy...you just have to understand what true wealth is. "

    " Got the idea in the first chapter or two, and then nothing added. But a revolutionary way yo view God, the world's system, etc. "

    " Perhaps the prosperity that God has in mind for us is far better than anything we could ever buy or earn? This book made me uncomfortable quite a bit while reading it, not because I didn't agree with the message, but because I knew what he was saying was right on. "
