40 Day Financial Renewal

By: Tanesha Hollingshed, Kenneth Hollingshed

A Declaration of Financial Independence

By: Josh Gilliam

In our culture many corrupted ideas of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness have been promoted and accepted for so long that they bear the superficial appearance of being right. Americans design lifestyles and build financial plans around these "ideas" without realizing oppression lies just beneath their surface-a tyranny far worse than the British Crown ever stamped on us. By exploring the causes and the destructive effects of excess, A Declaration of Financial Independence is a rallying cry for preserving our sacred freedoms. It empowers the reader with a Biblical perspective for financial decision-making and reveals the secret of contentment in an age of unprecedented-but often unfulfilling-wealth. This one-of-a-kind composition is principled, clever and instructive. From Jesus to Joseph Goebbels (Hitler's propaganda minister), the book uses Scripture, history, statistics and personal anecdotes to expose and expel a new tyrant-the Crown of Popular Culture. "Popular culture has lied to us-you deserve it, do what feels good, there is no such thing as right or wrong, to name but a few

Financial Exodus

By: Guy Walker|M

Author and Pastor Guy Walker makes a convincing argument that God is about to call His people to embark on a modern day Exodus. Unlike the forced march of Biblical times which was from one geographic location to another, today God is calling His people to "come out of" the world's financial system which has by and large, enslaved them. They have, of course, willingly accepted this bondage through their voracious appetite to consume goods and services that they cannot afford to pay for. The result is financial oppression through consumer debt that is stifling their spiritual life. Financial Exodus is a roadmap to freedom and true financial prosperity.God's way. He is calling His people to no longer "be conformed to the world, but to be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you might prove what the good and acceptable will of God is (for your life)." God has a plan for your Financial Exodus to find out what it is.
