- Forward by Morris H. Chapman
Making Change presents the essential basics of money management for Christians and then casts a greater added vision to the church and individuals of how our God-given financial resources can change lives for the sake of His kingdom. Author Ken Hemphill begins by helping readers discover the blessing of contentment rather than the gnawing curse of greed and shares helpful instructions on debt reduction, earning, saving, and spending. He also addresses the biblical laws of giving and teaches an inspiring concept of “whole-life stewardship” that can lead to a person’s legacy. And that’s worth more than anything money could ever buy.
