I just finished reading The Truth About Money Lies, and I wish every father and mother would read this with their children, and discuss the practical, and Biblical, wisdom it contains. If they would do this, they would be giving their children a gift of financial peace and freedom for a lifetime. Larry J. Goar, colonel, USAF, retired. On page 214, Kelly Talamo wrote of an incident in which he recalled a statement Russ Crosson had made to him. He wrote, "Right in front of me was a living illustration of a biblical principle: There is no correlation between how hard we work and how much we make. There is a cause and effect, but not a correlation.

The Truth About Money Lies: Help for Making Wise Financial Decisions.

Telling the story of what you expect will help identify similar scenarios

It’s the bread and butter of managers and executives, who make about three billion decisions each year. Telling the story of what you expect will help identify similar scenarios. 5. Involve a team of at least two but no more than six stakeholders.

Money is a big deal in the Bible. Historically there have been two perspectives on financial prosperity and the Christian life. And given the wise instruction we’ve received, we need to resist passivity and inaction, which presume on God’s kindness

Money is a big deal in the Bible. We’re given more instruction in the Bible about money (more than 2,000 verses) than almost anything else. And given the wise instruction we’ve received, we need to resist passivity and inaction, which presume on God’s kindness. Money is an important part of our lives, so it’s important that we clearly grasp what the Bible teaches about it.

Before we dive into this story-filled journey, we want to put your mind at ease. This is not a "do this" book on how to manage your money. We won't tell you how to budget, tithe, or complete an estate plan. If you don't like being told what to do (especially with your money), this book is for you. Quite simply, this book is based on the premise that every spiritual problem you and I face can be traced back to a lie we bought into. Through the use of stories involving common money lies and the truth from God's Word that refute those lies, we hope you'll close this book knowing how to apply truth to any money lie you hear and never wind up living that lie -- and reaping the sad consequences for doing so. So, sit back, grab a cup of coffee, find yourself in the stories, and enjoy your time with us as fwe explore financial truth. RUSS AND KELLY

I am a Certified Financial Planner. As I have searched for several personal finance books to recommend to clients to read, The Truth About Money Lies is one of the best I have come across. It could have easily been titled "The Truth About Life In General" because our money and our lives are so intimately intertwined. It is an easy read. Mr. Crosson and Mr. Talamo do an excellent job of using stories to illustrate money decisions that confront many of us at some time in our lives that have long term effects on our financial well being. True freedom and peace of mind is not achieved by making more money in order to acquire more things. Human nature will not allow you to be satisfied with your current status. The old saying "How much is enough? Just a little bit more than what I have now" applies. True freedom and peace of mind comes from not being a slave to debt and giving to others.
It has been said before, but even if you are a non-Christian, the basic principles in this book apply. For Christians, it is an essential read. It provides a proper frame work for the best long term decision making regarding finance and giving. Thank you Russ and Kelly for an inspirational book.

To entice us, Satan offers alternate attachments masquerading as fulfillments of our needs…I’ve observed that excessive consumer debt is a good barometer that people are more attached to the world than they are to God (Page 59).

I don’t regret staying out of consumer debt because it reduced financial pressure and allowed me more time with my family (Page 64).

As other reviewers have already stated one of the geniuses of this book is the way they weaved the stories of others into the chapters on each book. They help the reader sees themselves in the situation and thus more easily apply it to themselves. Not all chapters will be equally applicable as others but there will always be a chapter that can help you improve your biblical view and priorities on finances. Many of the truths are general enough that even a non-Christian could implement them but the biblical worldview that undergirds the book is obvious.

The Truth About MONEY LIES is very well written and true to life. In the book's concluding chapter the authors remind their readers that they started out by asking them to find their place in the stories shared.

Among all of the wisdom shared in the book, I found the next-to-last truth most convicting: "You may say to yourself, 'my power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,' but remember that the LORD your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm His covenant He swore to your fathers, as it is today" (Deuteronomy 8:17-18 HCSB).

I also found exposure of the final lie mentioned in the book to be extremely powerful. On page 214, Kelly Talamo wrote of an incident in which he recalled a statement Russ Crosson had made to him. He wrote, "Right in front of me was a living illustration of a biblical principle: There is no correlation between how hard we work and how much we make. There is a cause and effect, but not a correlation. None. The only explanation for how much we make is not our brilliance or our labor. It's the providence of God and our vocation He inspired."

Thank you Russ and Kelly!!!

This is a very enjoyable book to read. While I loved the messages, I thought the genius of the book is that the authors used of a series of fictional, but realistic, stories to expose many lies our culture has come to believe about money. When we believe lies about money and act on them like they are truth, we get ourselves into financial trouble. Certainly very few people ever intended to get into financial trouble, but with millions suffering with excessive credit card debt, mortgages in trouble because people over-bought or over-borrowed for their homes, and homes filled with luxury items people bought on "0% interest" offers, it is clear that there is a lack of financial peace. This book will help the reader recognize money lies and begin the process of regaining control over their spending and savings

Books about finance are among the least readable books published. Academic financial books can be filled with technical jargon and math which is incomprehensible to the vast majority of readers. Personal finance is often preachy. The Truth About Money Lies tells the stories of ordinary Americans in ways which make you want to read to the end. I bet you'll find your story in here, too, and along with it, insights into how to make your financial life better.
I just finished the book last night. It has opened my eyes - some chapters more than others. I especially like the chapters about eliminating debt and not waiting for retirement. It really hit home. Early in the year I was saying "I have a five-year plan - to prepare for retirement". Now I am saying with God's help I have a five-year plan to eliminate debt and to increase savings. The book has convicted me about the truths of the bible and to start applying the truths to my life. I also like the last two chapters about how God has put us where we are for a purpose - in order for us to show others how God is working in our lives, to give Him the glory for "our" accomplishments and to share the gospel with others. I shall never stop "working" for the Lord.
