This book is a guide to biblical stewardship and, more particularly, to Jesus' teachings. Jesus used money in a variety of ways to make the Gospel known.

Golv begins with the beginning of Matthew and carefully sifts through the texts finding the various ways in which a reference is made to money. Texts not found in Matthew but in Luke and John are added.

The author reflects on these texts incorporating insights from biblical studies, raising questions and discovering new insights. The result is 27 chapters of engaging insights for Bible studies, discussion groups and sermon development.
