Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Money has great power in our lives. Used wisely, it is one key to accomplishing our goals, providing for our needs, and fulfilling our life purpose. In recent years, many of us ignored the wisdom of the past when it came to managing and spending our money. Credit card debt soared, savings rates plummeted, and our home equity became something to be tapped into and spent rather than a source of security in retirement. We felt an insatiable desire for more. And we found ourselves spending tomorrow 's money today in order to have what we hoped would satisfy. The result of all of this was not greater happiness and satisfaction, but greater stress and anxiety.

Enough is an invitation to rediscover the Bible 's wisdom when it comes to prudent financial practices. In these pages are found the keys to experiencing contentment, overcoming fear, and discovering joy through simplicity and generosity. This book could change your life, by changing your relationship with money.

We Americans love our stuff. We re living in a fast-paced, me-first, instant-gratification world, and it 's finally catching up to us. Debt is out of control, homes are in foreclosure ... even banks are going out of business. What the world needs today is the message of contentment and simplicity, and that 's exactly what Pastor Adam Hamilton delivers in Enough. Dave Ramsey, New York Times Best-Selling Author and Nationally Syndicated Radio Talk Show Host

Once again, Adam Hamilton is leading the church; Enough is enough was once a Wesleyan watchword. Adam breathes new life into the Wesleyan commitment to simplicity. Amid a culture of greed and conspicuous consumption Adam calls us to a biblically based, evangelical joy of having the faith to say enough is enough. Bishop Will Willimon United Methodist Church, Birmingham Area

I pay close attention to whatever Adam Hamilton writes. His books are marked by extraordinary pastoral insight, biblical and theological depth, courage to speak the truth, and down-to-earth practicality. Enough comes like an antidote in the middle of a pandemic. I hope that classes, groups, couples, and individuals will use this book and the economic crisis it addresses as a challenge to get healthy again by deepening our discipleship in the vital area of money and possessions. Brian McLaren, Author/Networker (brianmclaren.net)
