  • Author: Randy Alcorn is the founder and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries dedicated to teaching biblical truth and drawing attention to the needy and how to help them.

In The Treasure Principle, Alcorn seeks to motivate believers to think "eternally" about every giving, saving and spending decisions. This is the heart of true stewardship.

The main principles of the book are:
1. God owns everything. I am His money manager.
2. My heart always goes where I put God's money.
3. Heaven, not Earth, is my home.
4. I should live for the line (eternity), not the dot(short life on earth).
5. Giving is the only antidote for materialism.
6. God prospers me not to raise my standard of living, but to raise my standard of giving.
