  • Summary:

    John and Sylvia Ronsvalle, with U. Milo Kaufmann, have ventured where angels fear to go – talking about money in Christian community. This is a ground-breaking, paradigm-shifting book. The authors cover the general foundations of what makes for good groups while uncovering the hidden secrets of why we won’t talk to each other about money.

    This book is practical, accessible, flexible, and personal while built upon well thought-out biblical, theological, and psychological grounds. The authors are sensitive to healthy discipleship practices as well as intentional spiritual formation. If you want a committee, team, task force, or small group to wrestle with monetary values in a wholistic and healing way, this book is a wonderful tool for a risky and redemptive adventure.
