Congregants of the religion of the rich share important philosophical principles. They have learned to treat money with the reverence and respect it deserves. In Rich Is a Religion, author Mark Stevens shares some of the principles he’s discovered, both from living them himself and from watching others who practice them. He also shares the stories of the “atheists” of the religion of the rich, and their ultimate financial destruction.

If you’re looking for information on how to get rich, this book won’t provide it. You won’t find investment strategies, business ideas, or any other means of developing wealth. But what you will find is a way of looking at money that can help you hold onto what you do have, while inspiring you to create more.

Don’t let the title put you off – this is not a book about worshiping money. Instead, it’s a book about living a quality lifestyle without needless expenses and a keeping-up-with-the-Jones mentality. Practical and inspiring, Rich Is a Religion is a voice of common sense in this age of greed.
