ABOUT THE BOOK
In The Seven Money Types, Tommy Brown leads you on a journey of personal discovery as he reveals the seven money types found in Scripture, helps you identify the type that best fits you by means of a user-friendly assessment, and coaches you on understanding, affirming, developing, and enjoying your unique approach to money.
Discovering your money type – whether you are an Abraham (hospitality), an Isaac (discipline), a Jacob (beauty), a Joseph (connection), a Moses (endurance), an Aaron (humility), or a David (leadership) – will bring greater self-awareness, reduce internal financial tension, help you resolve financial conflict with others, and help you grow financially from a faith-based perspective. As you walk with Pastor Brown through the Scriptures you’ll find holistic financial pathways that lead to greater confidence and peace with money.

What Others Are Saying
Have you ever wondered why you are wired the way you are when it comes to your finances? Why can’t you save? Why do you spend so much? Why are you so fearful of anything financially related? Why do you give so much that it truly hurts your bank account? Why are you so miserly? It is in seeking to understand the why that you can change for the better. This book will help you deeply examine your God-given money type. Once you understand your type you can find financial peace.

The Seven Money Types is not a book on how to manage money. Rather, it is a unique approach to understanding how you innately relate to handling money. You will likely find yourself in one of these seven types. It reveals the benefits and pitfalls of each type. A careful reading will help you make the most of who you are and better understand others who are wired differently. A fascinating concept.

To know Tommy Brown is to know a man of wisdom and courage. His wisdom is evident on every page of this book; his courage is reflected in his eagerness to truly live the words of the ancient sage who taught, “Who is wise? He who learns from everyone.” Many books offer little or nothing. Other books are moving and heartwarming. But this book by Tommy Brown is in a rare category: it has the power to actually transform your life for the better. Be prepared: the road you are on will never be the same after reading (and studying) this down-to-earth spiritual masterpiece.

Tommy Brown’s financial insight and passion for teaching others about financial stewardship is undeniable! In his book The Seven Money Types, he teaches financial wellness strategies, but more than that, he teaches us how to understand the heart, or good intentions, behind our and our loved ones’ financial decisions. This is the money book I recommend to my counseling clients!
Dr. Shannon Warden, author, counselor
With compassion, Scriptural insights and pertinent examples from his pastoral and professional experience, Tommy Brown makes the convincing case that to align the ways we think and feel about money with how God designed us leads to empowerment—to do good in the world and nurture relationships, including with those who, by God’s design, may view money differently. He teaches us to be gentle with ourselves and reminds us that financial well-being is not based on the amount of money we have in the bank but on the “why” that drives our decisions, hopes, dreams, and partnerships.

Using seven biblical money types as examples of financial stewardship, Tommy Brown presents a most creative teaching on the ways each of us can use well the money we are entrusted with. You will enjoy and be stimulated by this book!
