REVIEW: Manna-Free Living by R. Carnell Jones



I’m not sure what I was expecting when I picked up Manna-Free Living by R. Carnell Jones. The title of the book was intriguing and I knew I would learn something about money. What I discovered was a complete paradigm shift to handling financial matters. Most books about finances discuss the “how-to’s” regarding investing or making money grow. However, this book deals with the “why-to’s” about handling what God has entrusted to us. R. Carnell Jones, former bi-vocational pastor of New Hope Fellowship in Bloomington, IL, author, and entrepreneur, shares biblical principles about financial management. While most people will benefit from this book, it is a must-read for every believer!

Readers of all financial stages will appreciate Manna-Free Living, whether you’re struggling, striving, or successful. Jones shares practical financial principles, while relating our lives to the people of Israel. Not only will you learn to re-evaluate your bank account, but you’ll also look deeper at the attitudes and intentions you’re depositing in your heart.

Jones is unapologetic about stating that God is our source, money is our resource. Each chapter is interspersed with 21st Century financial scenarios and review questions. He discusses many unique topics including the “Struggle Class,” “God’s Payment Plan,” and “Working Your Blessing.” Readers are encouraged to partner with God to reach financial stability.

If you’re tired of living on manna, and ready to enter the Promised Land of financial abundance, this book is for you! Jones makes it clear, however, that abundant living involves more than just miracles. We must be intentional about evaluating and improving our financial status.

Manna-Free Living is a must-read for every believer! Gather your friends, family, church, or small-group to begin making better financial choices today. Order your copy now!
