Book Review: The Treasure Principle


The Treasure Principle
Randy Alcorn
Multnomah Books (2001)

The overall message of this book is how to unlock the secret of joyful giving. Alcorn challenges individual believers to examine their freewill giving. He urges believers to examine their motives and measure of giving as a barometer of their spiritual life today and as to what is being established in heaven.

 Alcorn’s singular goal is that believers truly trust God and obediently evaluate how they are spending or using the monies that God has entrusted us with. He challenges individual believers to examine what their current attitude to God, giving, and money is now and to realign their thinking with five (5) treasure principles.

I found this book to be a very riveting read. I could not put it down. This book is a very easy read and can be read in one or two settings. Alcorn writes with clarity and holds your attention very well. However, to receive the maximum benefit of this book I suggest that one should read it slow and savor the various truths and principles that are presented. This book was challenging and inspirational. It caused me to rethink how I view the privilege of giving. This book forces the reader to think through each principle personally.

Alcorn backs his points with Scripture in an accurate and stimulating fashion. I would highly recommend this book to every Elder, church leader and every believer.

I saw this book and wondered about it, Gregg. My main concern was that it would be too heavy to read and understand quickly. Thanks for sharing. I think I'll pick it up. Happy Thursday! ☺
