The Legacy Journey: A Radical View of Biblical Wealth and Generosity by Dave Ramsey

The Legacy Journey: A Radical View of Biblical Wealth and GenerosityThe Legacy Journey: A Radical View of Biblical Wealth and Generosity by Dave Ramsey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It is hard for me to describe The Legacy Journey. It was an educational book, but took a leisurely pace. It was a spiritual book, and had me looking up bible verses multiple times. It also felt like an instruction manual, with some specific ideas on what to do in certain situations.

This is not meant to be a replacement for the Total Money Makeover or Financial Peace, but rather it felt like an appendix that needed to be written. Everything after baby step 4 in Dave's standard plan gets a little fuzzy for many of us, and while this book does not provide the specific tasks to go from point A to point B, it does answer many of the questions from people who are at step 4 or beyond and not sure how money fits in their lives from then on.

I can't say this is a must read for everyone, but if you have read either of Ramsey's flagship books (TMM or FP) and have applied those lessons to help you win with money, then this book is worth your time. While your mileage may vary, it left me with a desire to learn how to give, something I'm not only bad at, but something I haven't even spent much time contemplating.
