WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK
“This book is needed. I want my adult children to read it. …your particular application of the gospel to money is among the best I’ve read… I’ve found it clarifying, strengthening, encouraging, convicting, and have come away feeling more equipped to steward what God has financially entrusted to me.”
Jon Bloom – Co-Founder, desiringgod.org; Author – Don’t Follow Your Heart, Things Not Seen, Not by Sight
“In my humble opinion, this is the best book on personal finances that’s out there.”
Jake Buss – Pastor, Journey Christian Church
I wanted to express my thanks to your work on Money & The Gospel. I was on track doing a Dave Ramsey plan but my mind was overly consumed with the thought of my finances and my money became an idol. Dave has a great course/plan but I felt as a Christian I was enslaved to the thought of my money. In search of a biblical basis on money, I stumbled upon your website through Desiring God. I ordered the book right away and my wife and I are so thankful for it. With the gospel as the foundation, I was able to renounce money as the idol it was, This book has shown us the scriptures and what God says about money and has allowed us to continue to dig into scripture to become stewards for God in all aspects through a solid reformed biblical lense. Thank you for your time and work.

“Money and the Gospel” is such a helpful resource to transform our understanding of money and wealth, so that our perspective is in alignment with God’s perspective. Highly recommended.
Lincoln VerMeer, Vice President, Church Banking Team, Cass Commercial Bank
I have worked with hundreds of churches and Pastors over the years and have long known that there is a lack of quality material on being a Christian and thinking about money. Money and the Gospel has real depth from both a theological AND a practical perspective. This book is the first and only book on this subject that address both aspects. I highly recommend it – it will challenge and change your perspective on money like no other.

When we were preparing to have a mini-series at Journey Christian Church dealing with The Gospel and Money, we looked for assistance from authors who had done significant thinking on the subject. We actually stumbled upon Waldean and his book – what a gift. It matched just what we were looking for – an approach to thinking about money that wasn’t rehashed financial planner insights with a Christian twist, but thinking about money that is fundamentally grounded in the gospel. Waldean came for a weekend to serve our church with a sermon and a seminar. I am so thankful for his voice to the church in relation to such a crucial topic.
