The Treasure Principle: Unlocking the Secret of Joyful Giving by Randy Alcorn is a quick and easy read that addresses the issue of giving from a Biblical perspective. I really appreciate Mr. Alcorn’s candor and straightforward style. His transparency is ultimately what makes the book so good. He is asking the reader to join him on an adventure that he has already undertaken.
Throughout the book Mr. Alcorn manages to artfully prod at the heart of the reader on how to give from a biblical perspective. The material is both factual and persuasive, theological and practical, sensitive and pointed. Overall it is a fantastic non-fiction book with just the right amount of motivation and practicality. The fact that it is about giving with a biblical mindset makes it even more stunning. I was both convicted and challenged to follow God more surely with our finances through this book and I highly recommend this book to you.
The Treasure Principle is only around 120 pages, small, and hardcover making it an excellent gift book even for those who don’t read much. This is one of those books that I wish someone had handed me at 18. The retail price of The Treasure Principle is $9.99 (Hardcover), and is available around the web in places like Amazon.com. I gave it five stars.
