Dr. Robert Baldwin is a “a seventy-four year old, happily married, retired minister and military chaplain” who has written an honoring review that comes from a unique and insightful perspective.
He has two blogs: http://www.4walkingwithgod.com/ and http://www.4relating.com/blog/ and will be posting this review on the former shortly.
Here is the review:
Finances in the Kingdom of God
From Zero to Hero in Your Finances written by Dr. Richard Knapp is a book about how Abba takes care of His dependent children. Richard Knapp speaks from experience as a child of the Kingdom who is dependent upon God. Dependence upon Abba for provisions rises from the obedience of putting God’s Kingdom first above all things and people. From Zero to Hero in Your Finances is filled with personal testimonies of how God provides the “daily bread” for those who are needy because of an obedient walk with God in His Kingdom.
Richard Knapp makes it clear that wholehearted devotion to God’s work and separation from worldly idolatry is necessary to move from zero to hero in receiving the abundant life that God promises and came in Christ to restore to His children. Dr. Knapp explains that the humility of emptying self is a requisite of being raised upward by God.
The lives of those mentioned in the book are eyewitness accounts of how God resurrects to fullness every aspect of a life presented to God as a living sacrifice. In every sense From Zero to Hero in Your Finances is a book of acts that demonstrates the truth that God’s power is perfected in human weakness. This book offers practical advice to struggling Christians who in faith depend upon God for deliverance.
Solid teaching, testimony of others, supporting scripture, prayer and practical application of Christian living are presented to the reader. The book is as much about a life-cup that overflows with God’s blessings as it is about finances. The book makes it clear that God is a God of promises delivered to those who are “sold out’ to Him and the work of His Kingdom.

My sister Rachel recently advised that I make a graphic of some of the prayers and sayings to more quickly relate to people on social media. This I have attempted and will hopefully improve upon in the future. I also decided to make a hash-tag for From Zero to Hero in Your Finances. I would have used # f 0 2 h, but it was already used for a band of which we have no affiliation, so thus the title of the post: #fz2h.
