Kingdom Wealth: The Power to Get it
by J. Vernon Duncan
Trafford Publishing

"God will say to us 'you do not qualify to use the power to get wealth unless you treat me special and make giving to me a most worthy exercise.'"

In his first book, Kingdom Wealth: The Power to Get It, Pastor J. Vernon Duncan explores how believers can unlock the door to covenant wealth. Centered around Deuteronomy 8:18 (And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which he swore to your fathers, as it is this day), Duncan explains how to put this power to use, including the practice of tithing as a seed that leads to an abundant harvest if cared for properly. The author shares a formula he calls "daily power declarations"—Creative Sunday, Prophetic Monday, Deliverance Tuesday—to empower the creation of wealth.

Senior pastor of Divine Encounter Fellowship Ministries International, headquartered in Trinidad, Duncan emphasizes his thesis with personal and observed testimonies about the accumulation of earthly wealth. These are underpinned by the author's personal Biblical interpretations, here referencing the passage from Deuteronomy quoted above: "It goes beyond just money, and covers the whole gamut of benefits that God downloads upon us." While the message and advice are encouraging if somewhat vague, some readers may be put off by the author's assertion that because he is their pastor, members of his congregation who sow (invest money) directly into his life will be rewarded by new houses, cars, and promotions. Kingdom Wealth is a capably crafted, easy to understand treatise setting forth a theory of Biblical wealth. It is intended for believers who are attracted to the concept of religion as abundance and the notion that God approves and assists in accumulating wealth.
