As baby boomers have begun approaching their peak earning years, interest in financial planning has exploded. At the same time, a large percentage of Christians are experiencing unnecessary financial problems due to a lack of knowledge on how to properly handle money. Achieving Your Financial Potential demonstrates clearly how to gain control of finances through practical step-by-step instructions that are rooted in the Scriptures.

Though the Bible doesn't give advice on what the best mutual fund is or how to play the stock market, Kays shows how it does contain the principles that can lead to financial independence, if properly applied. Highlighting passages from the Old and New Testaments, together with graphs, easy-to-use worksheets, case studies involving real people, and helpful summaries of key points, Kays explains how to set goals, make budgets, pay off debts, reduce expenses, invest systematically, analyze insurance needs, plan for education, and minimize estate taxes.

Written for busy people who do not have time to read several books in order to acquire the financial information they need, Achieving Your Financial Potential is a book readers will find immediately valuable--and one they will wonder how they ever did without.
