Reviews - What do our customers think?
No practical information provided  Mar 26, 2007
I was recommended this book by a professional credit counselor. After reading the reviews below, I knew it had a heavilly Christian bias and was prepared for that. However, it is about 90% antecdotes about couples in financial trouble. And in each instance, the couples (and reportedly the author himself) are rescued by a financial miracle after accepting responsibility for their debts and praying. As nice as it would be to rely on that, I was looking for practical advice. It tells you to make a budget, but doesn't tell HOW to make and stick to a budget. There is absolutely nothing in here about how to actually get debt-free and stay that way.

Completely ignoring the heavy religious bias (there's no effort to hide it in the descriptions of the book) I can see one "pro" in this book...the narratives about couples in trouble are a bit hokey, but they do put a mirror up to readers who can see bits of their own habits in at least one of the couples. Facing the bad habits is a starting point. Go somewhere else for practical advice. I for one do not have time to wait for God to tell someone to pay off my student loans and offer me a free place to live!
Debt-Free Living  Mar 8, 2007
This book has changed my life! If you are a Christian, it is a must-read as it details what God's blessings will come if you follow His Biblical plan. Well-written and full of real-life examples. Also see companion Budget Workbook by Larry Burkett.
The truth about debt and credit. This book can help a lot of people!  Aug 9, 2006
This is a really good book concerning financial issues that face almost everyone.

Larry Burkett's easy-to-read advice is truly a blessing to the Christian community, and I highly recommend it. God does not want our lives to be financially unstable. The different couples in this book and the situations that they suffer through allow the reader to see how finances can spiral out of control.

The advice in this book is solid. It is not a get-out-of-debt-fast magic book. It is a book written by a man who understands the drastic changes in the way society sees debt. We have been bombarded with a "get it with credit if you can't afford it" attitude.

People who truly want to stop accumulating and accepting debt as just a fact of life now have a book to get them started on the road to financial freedom.

Stop the insanity of just paying off one loan with another loan, buy Burkett's book and get started on the road to financial happiness.

See ya next review!
Great Help!  Aug 7, 2006
This book is great! Spiritually focused help for everyone. Easy read and practical use. Strongly recommend!
Very profitable reading.  Apr 15, 2005
I really liked this book. It is a classic book for those who are interested in managing their finances according to Biblical principles, and for those who have landed themselves into debt. Larry Burkett teaches biblical principles of debt-management by telling stories... stories collected over years of counseling thousands of struggling individuals and couples. Some of the previous reviewers have said that these stories are just anecdotal scare-tactics, but the intriguing thing is that I see highly-educated people around me making the same "anecdotal" mistakes with their finances (and reaping the consequences). Americans (in general) have no clue how much house they can afford, etc. and regard debt as a necessary evil... or even as a good thing. This book helps you to see debt in a more balanced light, and is highly recommended to anyone who struggles in this area.

As you can see by some of the other reviews, if you're not a Christian, you'll probably get hung up on some of the biblical principles: such things like keeping your word even when it costs you money, family leadership principles, living within your means, and the husband-wife relationship. So if you're not a Christian, I would suggest taking a serious look at the Bible (by studying what it says) and then compare it to the principles in this book. I think you'll find that the Bible is reliable and timeless in its guidelines for finances just as it is for every other area of life.
