After retiring from over 40 years in business, I am able to dedicate my time to writing and teaching about business and finance 'by the Book." The Book, is, of course, the Bible. I am amazed about how practical the Bible is. It provides timeless wisdom for all life stations and inspires to great deeds. It equips us for all tasks we have to do to live meaningful lives and contribute to the expansion of Gods kingdom, loving's God above all and our neighbour as ourselves.

Financial Discipleship.png

INVESTING IN ETERNITY
This book is an invitation to join Jesus in an exciting journey of financial discipleship. 

 

A disciple is a person who has an ongoing, life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ and who gladly shares what he or she has learned with others. Financial discipleship is so important because what we do with our money reflects our heart’s priorities. Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there your heart shall be also.” 

 

A financial disciple has a clear vision, to see every follower of Christ in every nation faithfully living by God's financial principles in every area of their lives, both personally and in their work, family and community. He or she desires to know Christ more intimately, to be free to serve, and to help fund the work of the church.

 

Join us in the journey of financial discipleship!

UNMASKING MAMMON!

Monkey Business is a book about managing money - God's way. 

It is based on the parable Jesus taught in Luke 16 about a manager who was accused by his boss of wasting the assets of the business. 

The monkey in our story is mammon, a tricky and devious spirit behind money which tries to tempt us away from following Gods ways. Jesus said unequivocally, "You cannot serve both God and mammon!" 

Jesus revealed the meaning of the whole parable when he said, "Make friends with the unrighteous mammon..." 

The book describes the spiritual aspects of handling money - both the light side and the dark side and gives practical ways to avoid falling into mammon's traps.

LEARNING TO LIVE AND WORK 

OUT OF GOD’S ECONOMY

This book is called, “The Flow,” because learning to live and work in God’s economy is like allowing yourself to be carried along by the flow of the Spirit, leading and guiding you through the economy of the world in which we live. 

The economy of the kingdom of God is not a structure to be built, but a stream of God’s activity to be experienced. It is my prayer that you experience being carried along on streams of Living Water, which bring life into the world in which God has placed us. 

In this book, we will discuss ways in which the economics of the Kingdom of God can influence our worldly economy; how can we ensure the gospel of the Kingdom can permeate our earthly systems. Jesus said, “My Kingdom is not of this world.” The economics of the Kingdom are different from man’s economy. Read on to find out how.

THE PURPOSE OF BUSINESS

wrote this book, which has been translated into 10 languages, for business people who want to discover the purpose of business as a Christian entrepreneur. 

The donkey is a Biblical metaphor for a business and the message of the book is taken from invitation in Genesis 49:11, "You shall tie your donkey to the vine." The book describes how rededicate our businesses to the True Vine, Jesus Himself, and allow the life of the vine to flow through the donkey to bear fruit. 

What is the fruit which God is looking for in our business? How can we tap into the new source of energy and assets in the marketplace?

I teach on a wide range of Biblical principles on leading a business - God's way, and provide workshop materials for others to teach on this topic

"Managing money is not merely a technical exercise, but it is a spiritual discipline."
