Book Description

October 1, 2011
In an age in which so many have so much, and most want more, what does the word abundance really mean? What does God have to say about it? And how can Chrisitians find and walk in it?

Respected author and teacher Derek Prince, with his trademark methodical approach, brings his wisdom and insight to the topic of God's abundance. He explains what abundance consists of and how believers can break the curse of poverty and step into a life of freedom. Prince also lays out the biblical conditions necessary to receiving this supernatural provision, giving Christians a practical guide to walking in God's generous abundance and Kingdom blessings.
My Review: 
This is not a book about God give me, give me but more about the true biblical prospective of abundance with God supplying our needs. To be honest I thought this would be another book about how God desires all ministers to be rich and to be given everything they want. We see too much of this in the church and it has become the down fall for many. After all, it is the love of money that is the root to all evil.
  1. 1 Timothy 6:10 (NLT)
    For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.
There is really nothing new in this book and it's not a book for everybody. Some will find it helpful to gain some perspective on how God provides for his people, while others may not agree with all its teaching or feel that things are taken out of context. For those that think God just wants us all poor to be a good christian I would recommend they check this book out. Get your bible out at the same time and check out the scriptures for yourself.
Not a book for everyone.

 I received this book free from Bethany House for this review.
