Managing money is not just a technical exercise, but a spiritual discipline. There is an active power behind money which Jesus unmasked. He stated that "you cannot serve both God and Mammon."
Monkey Business is all about managing our money wisely. The monkey is 'mammon' 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 explan how his master called the steward 'shrewd,' and how we can deal 'shrewdly' with money in all our daily affairs.
Peter describes how the clever monkey tries to trick us in ignoring Gods ways and in using people instead of serving them. He gives very practical ways in which to become shrewd managers of Gods resources, using money to benefit people, helping them to enjoy Gods Kingdom.
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?

Howard Dayton writes: In this book, ‘Monkey Business,’ Peter Briscoe sets about to inspire us from one parable which is one of the most difficult to understand. His novel approach to Jesus message on stewardship of the resources entrusted to us has certainly inspired me! Since I started on the topic of Biblical stewardship I am constantly surprised at how many new and unique ways God teaches me to manage money and possessions - His way!
