Publisher's Summary

Overcoming the Never-Enough Mentality to Experience True Kingdom Abundance

Prosperity. It's one of the most dividing words in the church. Some pastors use it to tell their congregations that God will make them all rich, rich, rich! Others spurn the word and insist that true Christlikeness is found in forsaking all worldly riches and possessions.

The truth is, both are right - and both are wrong.

With refreshing honesty, humor, and keen insight, best-selling author and pastor Kris Vallotton mines the Scriptures in an eye-opening study of what the Bible really says about money, poverty, riches, and wealth. And what he finds is sure to shake up what you thought you knew - including these surprising truths:

  • Jesus was not poor and homeless
  • Heaven is described in the language of wealth
  • Poverty is a mindset that holds us back from true wealth
  • You determine your wealth based on how much, and how well, you love yourself
  • God wants all his children to be wealthy, though not everyone should be rich

Kingdom prosperity begins from the inside out. When you learn to cultivate a mindset of abundance, no matter your circumstances, you will begin to experience the wealth of heaven in every area of your life.

ENCOURAGED to keep going!!!

I absolutely LOVE the truth that Kris enlightened me with in his revelation teaching of what it truly means to be wealthy v being rich....it has stirred my heart to keep stepping out and taking the God appointed risks required to use the ‘talent’ He has placed within me so I don’t ‘lose it’ (where I’ve been held back by fear) and to build wealth God’s way to build a legacy for my children and the community I love and live in.

It’s been a challenging couple of years financially since beginning my own business, but I felt a fresh wave of hope wash over me as I caught the words and wisdom shared right here!

Loved it so much I’m about to start listening to round 2!!!

Thanks again Kris for sharing your wealth of gained knowledge, understanding and wisdom! I never cease to be encouraged by what God has and continues to do through you!

The wealth of this book exceeds wealth itself!

I listened to this book with one goal; to increase my understanding of wealth from a kingdom perspective. What eventuated as I listened was a massive shift in my heart and mind in areas of my life I least expected!! I finally became free from life issues that had been plaguing my heart and mind for months, my hope for a tangible way forward found, and my heart still weeps in gratitude for the light of God that permeated my dark places through this audio. I'm so grateful for Kris and his team and their resolve to see this book come into the hands of the many. My life has forever changed because of it!

Worth listen to/rereading again

It’s probably going to take a number of times listening to this to get it to really sink in. I love the way that Kris explains biblically the differences between poverty, riches and wealth, but then also gives practical examples and ideas to make it work to for you. My mind is spinning with ideas of how I can implement these not just for myself, but for my kids. I want them to grow up with a godly wealth mindset, not the poverty one I am daily overcoming with the help of Jesus. I truly believe this is an area that the Lord wants His followers to grow in globally.

By the way, Kris did a great job narrating the book, I was impressed. Very easy to listen to.

Amazing book!
Thank you Kris for sharing your life experiences and wisdom. He gives you in-depth ways to prosper in life with biblical guidance.

I also liked that he read the book himself. It makes it more personal.

Amazing Book on wealth for Christians and all

I was very excited to hear that Kris wrote a book on wealth. It enlightened me to some many non productive thoughts and beliefs I had.

I was convicted about things I had previously done and considered doing as it pertained to money but moreso encouraged that wealth is from God, there are laws about it and principles to obtain it.

I believe everyone should read this book even if it’s not your goal to be financially wealthy but wealthy in terms of quality of life and mentally about how you see wealth and riches.

GREAT GREAT BOOK! Oh and he’s soooo funny.

This is a great book. Don't doubt it.

Read it! If this book does not improve your mind...perhaps nothing will. Have an open mind and apply it today.

Falls short compared with Randy Alcorn's book

I listened to this book shortly after listening to "Money, Possessions, and Eternity" by Randy Alcorn. Two different takes on the same subject. Alcorn's takes is more grounded in scripture. If you're on the fence, go with Alcorn - or at least read/listen to both and decide for yourself.

Much needed Perspective shift

I’ll be listening to this book another couple times just to process all the powerful truth in it. It’s been very transformative for me. Thank you Kris for sharing your heart.

Life Changing!

There is so much revelation in this book. As soon as I finished it I started it all over again. I've just finished for the second time and I want to listen to a few chapters again right away. This book is definitely anointed and will change the path of my life as my fiance and I have made the start to be delivered from the poverty mindset. May Kris be blessed richly for being such a blessing.
