The Shepherd’s Guide through the Valley of Debt and Financial Change

You can use this manual for sharing the Good News that God cares about our personal finances. This book is transforming – it offers direction for financial crisis intervention, responses to economic downturns, and inspiration for pastoral care and counseling to meet today’s most crucial needs. Use it for personal devotions, study groups, one-to-one counseling, money coaching, mentoring, and sermons. Learn how to set goals, save money, give more, buy well, use credit, get out of debt, reduce expenses, communicate about money, plan premarital lessons, make decisions in divorce, foreclosures, college funding, getting a job, overcoming addictions, and retiring. Pastoral theology is intertwined with financial management information and steps. It is Christ-centered, Biblically based with prayers. Many case studies illustrate and educate.

Rev. Dr. Flora Williams, a member of the Lafayette Church of the Brethren, has 32 years at Purdue University teaching and research, 25 years directing a financial clinic, study at Bethany Theological Seminary earning a Master of Divinity, counseling, money coaching, and 20 earlier books. Also, this book is based on survey results funded by Eli Lilly for ministry excellence.
