Excerpt: "In this introductory chapter I will present the area under research, the methodology employed, the justification of this research, the limitations involved, and the general organization of this paper.
This study proposes to investigate and present the New Testament perspective on material possessions. To provide adequate background and sharpened focus, a biblical survey (Old and New Testament) of the subject will be made. The heart of this research is the exposition of selected passages from the gospels, the Pauline Epistles and the General Epistles. There will be a brief summary reflection on the various principles which emerge in the process of the survey and the exposition."
