Praise for The Sound Mind Investing Handbook
"I have had the privilege of knowing Austin Pryor since the beginning of my Christian life. There are few that I have as much respect for and confidence in than Austin. His counsel in the investment area has proven to be extraordinarily wise and discerning over a long time period. I can recommend this book without hesitation as a 'must read' for anyone interested in investing in very uncertain economic times. I consider it a privilege to be able to make this recommendation."

"If you're looking for an attractive easy-to-follow investment guide written in plain English, look no further. Austin Pryor writes without vested interests in any specific plan or fund. This means greater candor and objectivity. I'm frankly skeptical of a lot of stuff coming out of the financial realm with its short-term 'for this life only' perspective. Austin is a man with a larger and better perspective. May every reader seek to make wise investments of money and time in God's kingdom, investments that will pay off not only in this life, but in the eternal life to come!"
Director of Eternal Perspective Ministries / Author of Money, Possessions & Eternity

It is obvious that Sound Mind Investing combines Biblical wisdom with very practical and understandable application. Anyone would profit from reading this book."

"I have known Austin Pryor for over 30 years now, and I regard him as a good friend. I have found his counsel to be both biblical and practical. I know of no other individual with whom I would consult with more confidence on the subject of mutual fund investing than Austin. If you will spend the time to read carefully the counsel Austin provides, you will find it both time and money well spent."

"In the same way that I am no economist, I'm not exactly an investment wizard either. That's why I am a huge fan of Austin Pryor, author of The Sound Mind Investing Handbook and his monthly newsletter. Everything I know about investing I learned from Austin Pryor."

"I am grateful for Sound Mind Investing. Many of us have failed to be the stewards we ought, and most of us are too busy to give quality attention to these matters. That is why this book is so significant. May God bless it for the welfare of the saints."

"Sound Mind Investing is the 'Consumer Reports' for the Christian investor. They accept no ads, so it's unbiased. They simplify the complex, so it's easy-to-understand. They review thousands of mutual funds and financial products, so it's comprehensive. Their long-term investment track record is impressive. And best of all, it's biblically-based, equipping readers to 'have more so they can give more.' Sound Mind Investing is helping Christians build eternal portfolios."
Co-Founder / Crown Financial Ministries
"Austin Pryor's book, Sound Mind Investing, is a masterpiece on the subject of Christian economics. It is clearly a comprehensive hand-book for any person seeking professional guidance in investments. As a minister, of course, I am especially appreciative of the godly orientation manifest throughout this important work, and of the powerful testimony presented in Section Six, 'Investing That Glorifies God.'"
