I am happy to announce that my book, Giving Up: How Giving to God Renews Hearts, Changes Minds, and Empowers Ministry, is available now on Amazon.
This book will help Christ followers rediscover the centrality of generosity in the life of Jesus, the ministry of Paul, and the development of the early church. Sacrificial giving transforms how we approach evangelism and discipleship. When a church learns to ‘give up’, the gospel goes out, and we invite the Holy Spirit to come in to transform our lives.
Giving Up offers workable, concrete ideas for every church leader from my 35 years in parish ministry. It’s an invitation to a vital conversation for any church seeking to define itself in an increasingly self-centered world.
Giving Up is more than a book—we have developed a full parish program with bible studies, youth and children’s materials, sermon outlines, and a one year stewardship plan to superheat the virtue of generosity in your church. Email me to learn about this program and bulk book orders. In the meantime, confirm your purchase of the book to receive a free Giving Up poster!
But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you—see that you excel in this act of grace also. (2 Corinthians 8:7 ESV)
