Item description for Giving to God: The Bible's Good News about Living a Generous Life by Mark Allan Powell...

Overview
We all know that everything we have is a gift from God. But sometimes it's hard to know just how to give back to God. How much is enough? What does the Bible really say? What should giving look like in our everyday lives? Filled with good news for followers of Jesus, Mark Allan Powell's Giving to God shows Christians the way to a better life and a better relationship with their money ... and with God. Powell presents stewardship as an act of worship, an expression of faith, and a discipline for spiritual growth. Faithful use of our time, talents, and money starts with a deep, satisfying relationship with the God to whom we belong. We can then learn, says Powell, to give gladly and generously out of our heartfelt connection with God. Informative, concise, and eminently practical (including discussion questions), Giving to God gives us resources for best using the treasures, material and otherwise, that God has given us.

Reviews - What do customers think about Giving to God: The Bible's Good News about Living a Generous Life?

Review of Giving to God  Nov 5, 2006
This is a great book on stewardship. It's easy to read and provides good news on the subject from a completely different perspective than I have ever heard before. I am using this book in adult Christian Education classes and it is overwhelmingly positively regarded. Mark Allen Powell is a superb author with keen insight and fresh perspective. I highly recommend this book!
 
Excellent Resource  Sep 15, 2006
I am a pastor of a congregation and we are using this as a congregational-wide discussion on the theology of stewardship. What I treasure about this book is that it starts with a good theological background before getting into nuts and bolts sorts of issues. Because Powell argues that all of life is about stewardship, this book is an excellent read for those who are tired of seeing people who only associate stewardship with church fundraising.
 
Good News about money  Aug 31, 2006
Lots of books toss around "Good News" this and "Good News" that. Mostly they are full of some sort of scheme of guilt and pride that typically fails at resembling anything of good news.

This is NOT one of those books.

Read this book and hear the Good News.
