The Seven Money Types: Discover How God Wired You To Handle Money by Tommy Brown

In THE SEVEN MONEY TYPES author Tommy Brown identifies seven Biblical figures—each with a certain strength. Here’s the point: If you can understand your “money type,” you will better understand why you approach money in a certain way, and why others don’t.

There is a separate chapter for each Old Testament figure. 

  • Abraham—Hospitality

  • Isaac— Discipline

  • Jacob—Beauty

  • Joseph—Connection

  • Moses—Endurance

  • Aaron—Humility

  • David—Leadership

The Seven Money Types: Discover How God Wired You To Handle Money by Tommy Brown

Each of the O.T. figures illustrate a certain attribute of God’s influence. So, “Abraham offers God’s hospitality. Isaac demonstrates God’s discipline. Jacob reflects God’s beauty. Joseph depicts God’s connection. Moses manifests God’s endurance. Aaron embodies God’s humility. David influences with God’s leadership.”

I first took the quiz to see which basket I fit in. The quiz is called, “Discover Your Money Type: The Seven Money Types Assessment.”  There are 35 easy questions. 

Well, it turns out I am a “Moses” type with David a close second. Not surprisingly, as an engineer-type, I discovered that I really liked strong budgeting and control: “A Moses type’s life reeks of order, and those who need order are drawn to Moses types to glean their wisdom.”

Yea!

On the other hand, we Moses types have a tendency to be overly critical to others. Ouch! The author calls these negative aspects the “shadow side.”  Each famous Biblical figure had “deep flaws that flowed from the shadow side of their lives.”

So all in all, I found THE SEVEN MONEY TYPES a useful, easy read. The seven money types remind me a lot of personality types.  It doesn’t seem critical to appreciating the book to actually believe there are literally these seven types.  The book is filled with useful stories about real-life folks who have a certain money type.  Each story relates a tale of strengths and struggles.  I found these anecdotes useful and encouraging. The appendix contains “Prompts for Group Discussion.”
