The Money Answer Book by Dave Ramsey

“God gives every bird its food, but He does not throw it into the nest.” – J.G. Holland.
This is just one of the inspirational quotes in this little book by Dave Ramsey, one of the nation’s most famous voices in the area of personal finance. It’s an introduction to Dave’s basic teachings on how to get out of debt and live within your budget. It’s also full of answers to some of the frequently asked questions on the call-in radio program, “The Dave Ramsey Show.”
I would recommend this book to those who have not yet heard of Dave Ramsey and need a light introduction and inspiration to get started. For those who are serious about the nuts and bolts of doing money Dave’s way, you may want to check out Dave’s other books, The Total Money Makeover or Financial Peace Revisited.
My family is on Dave’s plan and we are now debt-free except our house and our money has been freed up to give into the Kingdom of God. It really works!
