    Everything you need to know about money is bound up in a slim little cloth-covered book that you'll never tear from my hands. "Money - The Acid Test" by David McConaughy was published by The Westminster Press in 1919. It became an instant bestseller."All life is a stewardship," it begins. Thereafter McConaughy convincingly lays out his moral argument that how you handle money is the most telling evidence of who you really are. Money appraises men and money reveals men, he claims. Stewardship is the test of character. He discusses, in order:1. Stewardship2. Acquiring3. Spending4. Saving5. Giving6. Proportioning7. Accounting8. Influencing OthersI like this book's direct, sparing style. He wastes no words, pulls no punches. I guarantee he'll make you squirm. He echoes the argument of a favorite pastor of mine, the man who officiated over my and my husband's wedding vows 35 years ago. I remember Pastor Emanuele Cannistraci (Evangel Christian Fellowship; San Jose, Calif.) used to having a favorite saying about money. He said, in so many words, "Show me a man's checkbook, and I'll show you where his heart is."McConaughy says, "The pocket-book is like a sensitive nerve; touch it and you will soon discover whether its owner is unselfish or otherwise. Cash is an acid test of character." (p. 53)No dancing around the truth here. I do not consider this a "Christian" book per se, though he quotes the Bible liberally. Its spiritual truths apply to anyone of any religion in any place in any age.
