Here are this weeks summer recommendations on the discipleship topic of money and giving. Remember, you can download all the apps via your favorite device and the books are available on the Welcome Desk (limited numbers). If the Welcome Desk is all out then you can grab a copy from the church’s online bookstore.
The Money Secret – Rob Parsons (£7.50):
“Practical and life-changing, this book will totally revolutionise your attitude to money and show how it can either be the source of freedom and happiness or a burden of guilt and debt. When you have finished this powerful story you will want to cut up your credit cards forever and rid yourself of the power of the banks and lenders and advertisers who dupe us all into a spending frenzy based on false promises and slick delusions.”
As well as offering solutions this book will challenge the status quo and question current spending habits. Rich or poor, we have all at some time felt in despair about money and its power over our lives.
