The Treasure Principle

I have a special Easter giveaway for you all!

If you're like me and one of the ten or so folks who haven't already read Randy Alcorn's The Treasure Principle, leave me a note in the comments and I'll make sure at least one of you has one. ;-)

If you're not familiar with The Treasure Principle, read on...


The Treasure Principle

Flip-Flop Your Concept of Giving!

Bestselling author Randy Alcorn introduced readers to a revolution in material freedom and radical generosity with the release of the original The Treasure Principle in 2001.

Now the revision to the compact, perennial bestseller includes a provocative new concluding chapter depicting God asking a believer questions about his stewardship over material resources.

Readers are moved from the realms of thoughtful Bible exposition into the highly personal arena of everyday life. Because when Jesus told His followers to “lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,” He intended that they discover an astounding secret: how joyful giving brings God maximum glory and His children maximum pleasure. Discover a joy more precious than gold!

Story Behind the Book:

After years of writing and teaching on the theme “God owns everything,” in 1990 Randy Alcorn was sued by an abortion clinic (for peaceful, nonviolent intervention for the unborn). Suddenly he had to resign as a pastor and was restricted to making minimum wage. Legally unable to own anything, Randy gave all his book royalties to missions work and need-meeting ministries. He and his family have experienced the reality of The Treasure Principle—that God really does own everything, takes care of us, and graciously puts assets into our hands that we might have the joy and privilege of investing in what will last for eternity.


Author bio:

Randy Alcorn is the founder and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries (EPM). Prior to 1990, when he started EPM, he served as a pastor for fourteen years. He has spoken around the world and has taught on the adjunct faculties of Multnomah Bible College and Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. Randy is the best-selling author of twenty-seven books (over three million in print), including the novels Deadline, Dominion, and Deception as well as Lord Foulgrin’s Letters, the Gold Medallion winner Safely Home, and Wait Until Then.

Amy,

I am all over this one. I don't know if I've mentioned much of my pro-life work on the momseloop, but Randy Alcorn is one of my favorite authors because he's so incredibly pro-life and some of his books are wonderful pro-life resources.

And, I think you need to close the commenting after my post because I think it's not a coincidence you posted this - I've been meaning to order this book for the last month or so! So if I don't win (the random drawing, I know - you have to be fair :-), I'll take it as a sign that I should finally go pick up a copy. ;-)
