Christians often focus so much on being loving and giving that they forget their own limitations.

Let me start by saying that both my wife and I met at a Baptist University and have Minors in Religious Studies.

I have never reviewed a book before but felt compelled to because of our inability to complete this book. We travel a lot and have listened to over 150 Audible Audio Books and this is the first we have been unable to complete. We heard about this book from Dave Ramsey and know it would be useful but, we cannot get past all the Biblical references. Trust me, we enjoy Biblical references, the references are so over the top that on MULTIPLE occasions my wife would turn to me and say, what was the lesson we were trying to learn? (After 10 different verses, I can't remember what the point was either). It's really absurd. I can't stress how difficult it is to follow. Perhaps in a written form it is easier, but, I can honestly say, this is one book I was really looking forward to and I am tremendously disappointed I can't bear to finish it.

I'm sad to say I cannot recommend it.
