Announcement: Giving Up is Coming Soon!

It’s Ready

After years of gathering ideas, studying Scripture, preaching “The Money Talk”, collecting three decades worth of wisdom…and months of writing and re-writing, the book is finished. 

We took our final pass at it with our red pens and now it lives with the publisher and then onto the printer…and then I hope…to you! It should be available for pre-order on September 30.

This book will help any pastor, church leader, or member rethink the vital issue of generosity and their own faith. It is inspirational—but also practical and timely. It is chock full of workable ideas that can be developed and implemented in any church of any size.

Who will want this book?

  • Pastors will find it helpful for teaching, preaching, and growing their own personal joy in living out a life of generosity.
  • Members of churches will appreciate the book’s accessible study of the bible and the early church.  
  • Small Groups can easily use this book. Each chapter is followed by a series of key points and discussion questions.
  • Those who carry the organizational burden of church leadership—Vestries, Board, and Committees—might breathe a sigh of relief. “Finally, a book that brings a deep understanding of Scripture to the topic of Giving and Generosity…”


Giving Up Needs Your Help

If you would like to review the book or help promote it send Kolby an email, and he will be in touch. This is going to be a journey; I welcome all traveling companions along the way!

Keep your eye out in the coming weeks—there will be lots of new material for you as the release approaches.

      Two things: there will be an order page for you to use when they are available. And secondly, I know your address and it is NOT Manhatten, Is! 🙂
