Few ethical concerns are as difficult for today's Christians to unravel as the relation of wealth to faith. Informed by a wide range of theological, ethnic, and economic perspectives, this study provides valuable insight into the biblical text and points the way to a fruitful theology of wealth that is relevant to contemporary life. By surveying the whole of Scripture, Blomberg is able to trace the development of the biblical teaching on the place of wealth in the value system of God's people.

Great survey
4 stars By Gary, Nov 22 2017
This book survey the old and new testament,  as well as the intertestamental period in order to come up with the main idea on the important but much neglect topic stewardship. Professor Bloomberg is a well regard scholar especially in the field of parables.  This book will enlighten your horizon, and it makes me want to experience more of God's blessings by being a generous giver.

In depth and scholarly - Yet, convicting!
3 stars By Wally Bocos, Sep 06 2017
In depth study on the biblical view of possessions. Blomberg engages with OT, intertestimental and NT sources to give a clear picture of the attitude towards possessions. Blomberg surveys the OT with his thesis hinging on Prov. 30:8-9. The Inter-Testamental period is focused on the apocrypha. The NT is further broken into the Synoptics, Early Christianity, Pauline corpus and remaining NT. So, it can be said Blomberg is thorough in pursuing a running thread of riches and possessions throughout the history of God and His people. 

Blomberg is very thorough, yet his treatment of the Synoptics needs to be highlighted as thought-provoking and convincing as he makes he way through numerous passages, outlining an emphasis of living generously - especially, looking out for the needy. The target audience is the scholarstudent. At times his writing can be taxing and various greek and theological terms are not defined. 

His final and personal applications capped his book well for me personally. I was, am convicted to give more...out of gratitude to the Lord for His gifts, love for those who may be in need. 3.75
