So much has changed...and yet, so much is exactly the same.
Debt-Free Living has sold more than 300,000 copies in the two decades since Larry Burkett first laid down the challenge to live debt-free lives. And now, on the heels of the debt-fueled debacle that was 2008-2009, we need this message now more than ever.
With people's credit, mortgages, car payments, salaries, commissions, and bills fluctuating daily, Debt-Free Living has never looked more attractive. This bestselling book has been updated and revised to reflect today's realities alongside timeless biblical truth. Learn about the origin of most financial troubles and break out of the debt cycle.
Debt-Free Living is a necessary resource to battle the ever-present temptation and trappings of more and more debt that keep weighing you down.

When Larry Burkett's Debt-Free Living was first published in 1989, I could have been one of the horror story case studies that opened the book. Coming out of my own bankruptcy at the time, I was on a mission to discover how money really works. Debt-Free Living was a light in my darkness, giving voice to a lifetime of common-sense financial principles that I had largely ignored. Now, twenty years later, I believe there has never been a better time for the time-honored, godly principles of this book to make a comeback.

It is a privilege for me to endorse the revised Debt Free Living by the person who impacted his world like no other. Larry's life message is sorely needed today. As he would say, "God's principles of finances are always right, always relevant, and will never change."

Sometimes it seemed as though Larry Burkett could see around corners. He certainly saw things long before the rest of us. That's why his warnings about the dangers of debt and the direction of our economy still ring true. Indeed, the turmoil of recent years has given even greater force to his insights. Of course, as Larry would say with genuine humility, "All I do is plagiarize Scripture." He saw his role as simply trying to convey that God's Word is true and that the Lord can be trusted. Indeed, that's what Debt-Free Living is all about.
