Each day, millions of radio listeners tune in to the "Dave Ramsey Radio Show" to learn how to get out of debt, manage their finances, and build wealth.

Now Ramsey has written The Legacy Journey: A Radical View of Biblical Wealth and Generosity.

As its title suggests, the book "looks at wealth through the lens of the Bible," The Daily Times quoted Ramsey.

''I've always said that if you live like no one else, later you can live and give like no one else,'' Ramsey recently told The Boston Globe.

''If wealth is bad, then that means we are supposed to feel guilty for our success and our passions," he continued. "Our culture makes us believe these mixed messages on money and wealth."

"But we are supposed to be good stewards of the money we have been given so that we can feed hungry children, help build safe drinking water wells in Third World countries, and help in our communities," Ramsey said.

What does the Bible really say about money and wealth? Dave Ramsey addresses these questions and more on The 700 Club, Oct. 21.
