Summary

Summary

Dave Ramsey shares Biblical wisdom on the legacy we build with our wealth.

What does the Bible really say about money? About wealth? How much does God expect you to give to others? How does wealth affect your friendships, marriage, and children? How much is "enough"?

There's a lot of bad information in our culture today about wealth-and the wealthy. Worse, there's a growing backlash in America against our most successful neighbors, but why? To many, wealth is seen as the natural result of hard work and wise money management. To others, wealth is viewed as the ultimate, inexcusable sin. This has left a lot of godly men and women honestly confused about what to do with the resources God's put in their hands. God's ways of handling money caused them to build wealth, but then they're left feeling guilty about it. Is this what God had in mind?

In The Legacy Journey , New York Times bestselling author Dave Ramsey takes you deep into God's Word, revealing His perspective on wealth, your personal and family legacy, and how He wants to use you to further His kingdom work around the world. You can truly live-and leave-a legacy. The journey starts today.


Author Notes

Dave Ramsey was born in Antioch, Tennessee on September 3, 1960. He graduated from the College of Business Administration at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 1982. By the time he was 26, he had a net worth of a little over a million dollars and was making $250,000 a year. When the Tax Reform Act of 1986 began to have a negative impact on the real estate business, he was forced to file for bankruptcy relief. After losing everything, he went on a quest to find out how money really works, how to get control of it and how to have confidence in handling it.

In 1992, he formed The Lampo Group to counsel individuals hurting from the results of financial stress. He wrote the book, Financial Peace, and started a local radio call-in show called The Money Game, now nationally syndicated as The Dave Ramsey Show. His other books include The Money Answer Book: Quick Answers to Everyday Financial Questions, The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness, Smart Money Smart Kids: Raising the Next Generation to Win with Money, and The Legacy Journey: A Radiacal View of Biblical Wealth and Generosity. He also writes children's books dealing with finance including Careless at the Carnival: Junior Discovers Spending, The Big Birthday Surprise: Junior Discovers Giving, My Fantastic Fieldtrip: Junior Discovers Saving, and Battle of the Chores: Junior Discovers Debt.
