A few months ago, Andy Stanley tweeted about his new book “How To Be Rich,” and I replied with a snarky response:
After a bit of good-natured back and forth, Andy graciously offered to send me a copy of the book. I had a chance to read it this weekend, and while I’m not going to provide a comprehensive review, I will go ahead and say that it offers a solid and much-needed perspective on Christianity and money. The message is simple: we are all enormously blessed — we’re all rich — and it’s incumbent upon us as Christians to not allow the money we do have, and our seemingly insatiable desire for more, to consume us. To that end, Christians should be giving most of our material wealth away.
In the spirit of the book, I’m going to give my copy to one of my readers. Leave a comment below mentioning your favorite charitable organization and on Monday March 10 I’ll randomly select a winner from the comments. That person will get my copy of “How To Be Rich” and I’ll make a contribution to their charity.
