The book on financial evangelism is undeniably a profound source of wisdom for Christians who are eager to expand the kingdom of God on earth and advance the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. In our fast-growing world, where financial capacity plays a crucial role in spreading the gospel, this book offers invaluable insights. As Jesus declared in Matthew 16:18: “… on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hell will not prevail against it.”

Taking these profound words to heart, I am fully convinced that this book is a must-read, as it provides sound biblical knowledge on the necessity of utilising our resources to advance the work of the kingdom here on earth.

Personally, I approached this book with the ulterior motive of gaining a deep spiritual understanding of the importance of being channels of blessing in the kingdom. To my delight, the book addresses the questions that trouble modern Christians concerning financing the kingdom, offering substantial scriptural backing that left me in awe, wondering why such a book had not been available earlier.

The authors’ discernment in distinguishing between church financiers and kingdom financiers is an eye-opener that effectively settles debates surrounding the topic of financing the kingdom agenda. Every reader will be won over by the profound insights and unrelenting scriptural perspectives that dispel any doubts. This book has encouraged me to wholeheartedly embrace the race set before me and to confidently address the concerns surrounding kingdom financing.

A cherished Bible verse of mine, Matthew 6:33, admonishes us to “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you”. I firmly believe that kingdom financing is a manifestation of this act of seeking God first, making it a primary act of worship for believers.

The principle of taking care of God’s business and experiencing His reciprocal care remains unchanging. As we witness a paradigm shift in our service to God, kingdom financing emerges as an expressive form of devotion. This book is truly profound, enlightening, edifying and above all, instructive in guiding us to passionately engage in and fulfil the will of God.

There are various methods of evangelism, and one of the key approaches is through finance. I am thrilled that we now have a book that illuminates the financial aspect of evangelism, aptly termed ‘Financial Evangelism’ by the authors. It is crucial to emphasise that evangelism extends beyond the traditional notion of sharing Bibles and winning souls for Christ.

While that remains a fundamental form of evangelism, our contemporary world provides one of the most dynamic avenues for spreading the Gospel through the use of financial resources. Given the global interconnectedness, financial means can convey the message of the Gospel to people in every corner of the world.

‘Financial Evangelism’ entails how we utilise our financial resources as Christians. It is not an exclusive call for a select few, but a mandate for every believer who identifies as a child of God. Often, many of us overlook the fact that our financial decisions are a form of evangelism. When we invest money in something, we are essentially promoting and propagating the good news about that endeavour. For instance, putting money into business promotion is a form of evangelism, known as marketing and advertising.

Similarly, when we allocate our finances to support the Gospel and God’s work, we directly contribute to advancing the kingdom and its values. Nelson and Elizabeth have done an outstanding job in creating this masterpiece. It is not merely a book; it serves as a manual that every born-again Christian should have on their desk. It stands as a valuable resource for ministries in our current generation not only for pastors, but also for church workers in general. I wholeheartedly endorse this book and pray that it becomes a blessing to everyone who reads it!
