Quick Overview:

In How to Be Rich, Andy Stanley looks at the early Christians, showing that generosity was the hallmark of the early church. Generosity changed everything. It changed the world once, it could happen again.


You probably don't feel rich. Rich is the other guy. Rich is having more than you currently have. But you can be rich and not feel it. And that's the problem. Andy Stanley is convinced that most of us are richer than we think. We just aren't very good at it. It's one thing to BE rich. Andy wants us to be GOOD at it!

"How to Be Rich lays out clear principles for carrying that load, making sure your wealth remains a blessing not just for you, but for your family and community for generations to come."

—DAVE RAMSEY, New York Times bestselling author and radio show host

Review by Aaron
Overall Rating
Stanley is the leader of a mega-church organization, North Point Ministries. In this book, How to be Rich, Stanley urges his congregation to change their ideas of what true wealth really looks like. He primarily points to 1 Timothy 6:18 to show that true wealth is found in good deeds and in generosity. He points out that believers, who ought to be like Jesus, should be givers. Jesus Christ gave his life, therefore, we should give of ourselves to those in need.

There is nothing inherently wrong in this book, and it’s a good place to start when thinking about how to use resources and how to use wealth to bless
others instead of merely focusing on yourself. Although the cnclusion of this book is good—give to others, the way that Stanley gets to this conclusion is wrong. He says, “The best ministry we can offer on God’s behalf isn’t to explain our theology. It’s to extend our generosity. Because that’s what our heavenly Father did for us. And that’s what he’s asking us to do as well.” What Stanley misses here is that all of the Christian life finds its foundation in theology. God did extend his generosity to us, but he did it theologically; one could say that God generously extends his theology to mankind in the person of Christ.

This book has a good goal—educate others on what true wealth looks like, but it has bad methods—ignoring theology.
