Monkey Business

Managing money is not just a technical exercise, but a spiritual discipline. There is an active power behind money which Jesus unmasked and called ‘mammon.’ He told his followers in strong terms that, “You cannot serve both God and Mammon." 

We all manage money on a daily basis. Jesus is saying that mammon is a power behind money which wants to lead us away from God’s ways of handling money. How does mammon affect our financial decisions? How can the influence of mammon be overcome? How can we use our money in a way that God would want us to?

Monkey Business is all about managing our money wisely. The monkey is 'mammon,’ a tricky, unruly creature who is constantly seeking to destroy our relationship with God and our neighbour!

This book uses the parable of Jesus, told in Luke, chapter 16 and verses 1 to 15, called in many translations 'The Unjust Steward.' This book will explain how his master called the steward 'shrewd,' and how we can deal 'shrewdly' with money in all our daily affairs.

Peter describes a power behind money which is diametrically opposed to God and which competes for our allegiance.  The monkey in this book is mammon and in a humorous way, Peter describes how the clever monkey tries to trick us in ignoring Gods ways and in using people instead of serving them.

The book, Money Business, gives very practical ways in which to become shrewd managers of Gods resources, using money to benefit people, helping them to enjoy Gods Kingdom. 

 

I can heartily recommend this book for all followers of Jesus who want to grow in financial discipleship and generosity.

Donkey Business

`'I have known Peter for almost 20 years and have had the opportunity to work alongside him for 7 years. Peter Briscoe is an insightful man of God, a businessman who loves studying the Bible. He has a unique skill of being able to see within God’s Word, specific principles relating to business. Donkey Business is one of these unique insights! 

Within the pages of this book are timeless principles from many parts of the Bible that relate to business purpose, leadership and operations. You will find yourself being encouraged as a leader but also challenged to treasure God’s Word more, as a source of your own business wisdom! 

Peter takes us on an intellectual and spiritual journey that is sure to challenge and change the way we view business and its effect on us and the people our business influences. As you read deeper and deeper into the book you will see why I was so thrilled to be under the influence of this Godly man!”

Donkey Business is a challenge to Christians in business to look at their business in a different way. 

God has not only called us to share our faith on Sunday with our fellow believers, but especially with those whom we meet in the dark depths of the business jungle, where we are sent out as “sheep amidst the wolves.”

Many people think that being a Christian and doing business are two different worlds. Christian businessmen are often accused of being holy on Sunday and not wholly true the rest of the week. 

In this book, Peter Briscoe helps connect our Christian walk with the daily challenges of business. The donkey is a metaphor for an enterprise and the book explains how the donkey, the business can be used by God to bear fruit in the marketplace.
