Review # 284: My God, My Money - Finding Balance between Your Money and Your Faith by Judith Allwood

Description: (from
     My God, My Money is a 40-day devotional guide which highlights some of what the Bible says about the subject of money, wealth and riches and how we can build or maintain a wholesome relationship with money. For the most part, our beliefs about money, wealth and riches are influenced by cultural, social or religious teachings. Unfortunately, some of these teachings create conflicts in our relationship with money. The very popular "Money is the root of all evil" is just one example. My God, My Money provides a context for the reader to reform his or her thinking about money based on biblical principles.


     I have been very lucky to review several excellent devotionals this year, and I believe that My God, My Money is my favorite! Judith Allwood's approach to a healthy relationship with God and personal finances is one that every Christian should read. Each daily devotional is about four pages long and includes scripture, a prayer, and questions for reflection on the day's topic of discussion. I found each passage to be well-researched and agreeably formatted; I was glad to see quoted scripture that is not common in run-of-the-mill devotionals. The sections on poverty, gratitude, giving, and ignorance were some of the more memorable daily readings. I had no trouble understanding what Judith was trying to convey, her genuine tone was evident throughout the whole book. Overall, I was quite satisfied after my 40 days had come to a close. I only wish that there had been more to take in. Highly recommended to all Christians who seek the Bible's advice on their finances!

Rating: On the Run (4.5/5)

*** I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
