Why I Love Money
by Pricely Francis 
Trafford Publishing

"Everything that is more important than money,
immediately becomes inaccessible to me
if I have no money."

In Why I Love Money, Pricely Francis, pastor of thirteen years, who once taught people that money was not everything, communicates from his heart about how he came to believe that money was everything. Wielding a straightforward and informative narrative, Francis succinctly explains how after the loss of his marriage and livelihood, he began to question—and ultimately reject—his "biblical teachings" about money and wealth.

In a similar manner to the way Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter address the different attitudes about money that separate the poor from the wealthy in "Rich Dad, Poor Dad," Francis scrutinizes how the devout, are traditionally antagonistic towards wealth, dismissing its importance, attributing evil to it and warning about the dire eternal consequences of having too much money.

Francis may be preaching to the choir, but his candid rebuttal to his long held Christian belief that salvation depends on choosing between God and money, plainly illustrates how the universal emotions of guilt, shame, confusion, helplessness, anxiety, and fear often dominate both the conscious and subconscious thoughts of devout believers. Moreover, the frankness of his message is likely empowering enough to inspire readers to unlock their negative emotional attitudes about money and wealth and gain control of the economic realities of their lives...

This one thing I know. If you fail to invest and save for your retirement and old age, God will not rain money from heaven.

With its well-defined theme, true-to-life clarity, and straightforward tone, Why I Love Money, offers readers of faith a lifeline—via Francis' enlightening perspective that serves to resolve the dissonance between resentment against wealth, that is often integral to revered belief systems, and the universal desires to achieve and survive in an ever-changing economy.
