When all the money was spent in the land of Egypt, all the people came to Joseph, and said, “Give us bread, for why should we die in your presence? For our money fails.” (Genesis 47:15)
Today we too are in the midst of an economic crisis—a global pandemic of financial illiteracy resulting in broken families, dependency on predatory lending, health issues, mental issues, bankruptcy, foreclosures, divorces, and homelessness.
Sadly, due to the lack of financial education, young adults generally adopt the patterns of their community with little or no chance of breaking that cycle, hence becoming a generational pandemic.

“Most books have the ability to change a man’s life. When something changes, the value remains the same. It may take on a different form, but the value remains the same. This book however goes beyond change, it causes a man’s life to be actually transformed. As a result, it can transform their finances or the ability of that man to use finances, to manage finances, that can make his life totally amazing. Once something is transformed the value no longer remains the same. So, it is not only a life that is transformed because when a life is transformed generations are affected by it. Therefore, this book is not only a book that deals with an individual but one that deals with generations.”
The insight in this book is the exact biblical prescription for the believer wanting to prosper in an economic crisis.”
“The current pandemic has had a huge impact on the wealth of many of God’s precious people. As Joseph successfully managed the food crisis, the strategies in this book will allow us to manage the money crisis. When Money Fails gives the reader the tools needed to live above crisis, to live crisis-ready. This book is not just a “must-read,” but a “must-implement” book.”
As per my observation, believers are often the last to be informed of changes in the political and socio-economic environment, which can impact their finances and eventually their lives. We spend so much time in the “House of the Lord,” that we neglect our physical surroundings. We are holy, love the Lord, but financially illiterate. So, in times of economic crisis, we are the last to be informed and the first to be negatively impacted. During current times, we must understand where the economy is going, how it will impact our families, and what we need to do to rise above the turmoil. My mission is to rid God’s precious people of financial illiteracy. Due to the lack of financial skills at home, children generally adopt the patterns of their parents, hence, creating a generational pandemic of financial illiteracy.
I hope the information contained in this book will allow me to realize that mission and help you to achieve financial freedom. I am quite aware that there are thousands of financial books on the market today. However, this book takes a more holistic approach to money and money management, not just in good times, but in tough times. I pray that this book becomes a blessing to your family, your community, and more importantly, citizens of the Kingdom of God, God’s precious people.
