This was a difficult list to come up with. A couple months back when I asked the readers for suggestions on great Christian Financial sites, I just thought I would be able to throw this together in 30 minutes. And maybe I could have, but I wanted to create a list of websites that have helped me in my journey to understand how to manage money God’s way and that would help the ChristianPF readers as well.
How I picked the top 20
You don’t really realize how many websites there are on a given topic until you do something like this. It was difficult narrowing it down to 20, but I figured within these 20 sites you should be able to find everything you would want to about Christian finance. That said, I know there are some that I still don’t know about, so please add suggestions for next year in the comments…
When choosing the websites I was looking for…
- A site that was focused on some aspect of biblical money management
- Written for a Christian audience
- That contained either a wealth of free content/resources or an indication that it would get there in the future (for blogs this means regular updating)
Originally I was planning on ranking them, and quickly decided against it. Comparing apples, oranges, bananas, peaches, and mangos is crazy enough. So I decided to put them in alphabetical order and divide them by type. So, if you are looking for more Christian Financial resources I encourage you to take a look at the top 20!
The top 20 for 2009
