The Seven Money Types by Tommy Brown

The Seven Money Types by Tommy Brown is a different kind of money book from the usual. If you have been feeling guilty about how you want to handle money and  that you don't seem to fit certain money management formulas in with your personality very well. . .then this could well be a book that is right up your alley.

I like to read books about money management and learn how I can help our family better manage resources for God. The Seven Money Types offers a different look at how we handle money based on our God-given skills/strengths/weaknesses. Tommy Brown looks at seven money types based on seven Biblical people--Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, and David. Each of these Biblical people feature certain positive and "shadow" characteristics that show their money handling personality. At the beginning of this book, the reader takes a test to see which type they best relate to--and there may be two types that they are closely related to. I found this to be fairly accurate in relating to my own money type. From there you can just go on and read about the type(s) that you best relate to or you can read through the book and learn about all of the money types. I read through the whole book and found it to be interesting and easy to understand and relate to.

Besides Biblical stories to relate to each character, Brown shares a lot of stories from people he knows that relate to each character so I found The Seven Money Types to be fairly interesting.At the end of each chapter about each Biblical character, he shares a Blessing written for that type,  Scriptures he feels are specifically relating to that character, and reflection questions for each Biblical type.

If you are married, it would be a good book to discuss how to best fit your types together to make your money team work best as a couple. The Seven Money Types would be an interesting book to do for a Book Club or Bible Study too. It might also be fun for singles to do together as they would have accountability and support for each other in handling their finances. I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

I received a PDF of this book to read early from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
