How we manage our family finances is always an important issue, but is particularly topical given the West's financial crisis. As Christians, our lives should demonstrate different values from those of the world around us, so what should our financial priorities be? How should we plan financially for the future? Should we ever get into debt? In this thoroughly practical book designed for the layperson, John Temple describes the secular economic order of the Western world and then establishes biblical principles of home finance. Practical advice in areas such as debt, choosing a home, buying a car, insurance, and pensions, is supplemented by tables and downloadable spreadsheets.
A practical book that deals with basic biblical principles of stewardship and helps people to be wise in their use of money
Dr John Temple grew up in South Africa where he obtained a degree in electrical engineering. He obtained a Ph.D. from Kings College, London in physics and control theory followed later by an AEP (MBA equivalent) from the University of South Africa. From an engineering and scientific background, he moved into management, progressing to various Director, Managing Director or Chairman positions over a thirty-year period. His last full-time job was as Chief Executive of Plessey Corporation, a listed company with offices or subsidiaries in eight countries, including South Africa, the UK, Australia and South East Asia. After retiring from full-time work, he founded a computer company with offices in South Africa, the UK and the USA.
Ever since his teenage years, he has been a keen student and teacher of practical theology, endeavouring to reconcile his Christian world view with his daily work. He has held positions of leadership in churches in ministries ranging from youth work to eldership. He currently lives with his wife, Yvonne, in the New Forest in England, now retired but still working. He is author of two other books published by Day One.
