Story Behind the Book
After years of writing and teaching on the theme "God owns everything," in 1990 Randy Alcorn was sued by an abortion clinic (for peaceful, nonviolent intervention for the unborn). Suddenly he had to resign as a pastor and was restricted to making minimum wage. Legally unable to own anything, Randy gave all his book royalties to missions work and need-meeting ministries. He and his family have experienced the reality of The Treasure Principle--that God really does own everything, takes care of us, and graciously puts assets into our hands that we might have the joy and privilege of investing in what will last for eternity.

Good Start for Giving  Nov 7, 2008
I got this book at a church. They were giving them away for free. I decided to read it, because I'm interested in giving and tithing. I have to be honest: I thought this was going to be another "Rich Christian" book, the kind that give you strategies for reducing debt, being a good steward, and investing responsibly in the stock market, giving a good portion of your profits to the local church.

I was wrong.

While there are some things about this book I don't agree with--at one point Alcorn says that financial stewardship is central to our spiritual lives(I'm paraphrasing)--the overall theme is actually pretty good. Almost two-thirds of the book is devoted to giving. But not just the usual give to your local church because you should type of giving. Alcorn calls Christians to give generously, until it hurts. He even gives an example from his own life which was quite impressive.

If you're looking for a book on giving, The Treasure Principle is a good place to start. It isn't a very deep work, but it is surprisingly refreshing in a world of "gimme, gimme" Christians.
 
Life Changing Potential  Oct 19, 2008
This small book is one of the most powerful that I have ever read.

It has the potential to be life changing for anyone who reads it and takes it to heart. The author, Randy Alcorn, is one of the best. He has an eternal focus in all of his writing and this one is no exception. It is based on the premise of Matthew 6:19-21, which says: 'Do not store up for yourselves treasures on Earth where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.'

As the author says, 'You can't take it with you, but you can send it on ahead.' He goes on to demonstrate this point and back it up with Scripture.

This book will challenge believers, especially those in the United States where a materialistic culture is so rampant even among Christians.

This book is really terrific. I plan to read it again soon and buy some copies for others.

I would encourage every Christian to read this book.
