This book gives an often-funny look at money management: and how not to do it. Thor talks about his bad spending habits and the un-Christian attitudes that led him and his wife into a huge financial hole. He had adopted the attitudes of Americans in general—often the opposite of what the Bible teaches.
Many Christians believe that money and religion are separate, but Thor points out that the Bible speaks more about money than it does about Heaven and Hell. God does care about how we spend His money. Thor points to Dave Ramsey if you want a day-by-day plan. However, for him and those who are list-phobic, he advocates a just-spend-less program and tells the ways he and his wife approached their debt—not always without pain.
Many people know Thor as a Christian stand-up comedian who approaches all of life with humor. He admits he can’t cut back everything. Starbucks would fail without him. If money problems sour the reader’s day, this book will bring a laugh while bringing hope: and those who keep perfect accounts will enjoy it as well.
I’m reviewing this book a little too soon, but it is available for pre-order on Amazon and Thor said, “Buy this book. I need the money.” (Oh that the un-funny could be that honest).
