For the many Filipinos who think that material wealth and spiritual abundance could never be together, this is the book that teaches how to successfully combine the two. It seeks to explain further this old fashion thinking about money being “evil” and why in fact, God really wants us all to be rich materially – live in abundance and to share these blessings to our less brothers and sisters. Hopefully, people who get to read the books will ultimately become the “new” millionaires – simple, caring and generous.
