Is there a Christian way to use credit cards?

Does Christianity affect how you give gifts?

What does God think of insurance?

Christians often profess that Jesus is Lord over all of life. Yet it isn't always easy to relate Christianity to your day-to-day activities and concerns.

R. Paul Stevens and Robert Banks, editors of The Complete Book of Everyday Christianity on which this Everyday Faith eSeries title is based, believe Christian truth is for the routines and not just the crises of life. From poverty to wills and taxes, their collection of nineteen thought-provoking essays can help you to make spending decisions and set financial goals.

Whether you read from beginning to end or dip into the articles that interest you most, you'll gain insight on how Christian faith can guide, illuminate and energize your daily life.
