The goal is not to report on institutional practices, but to provide thoughtful, guidance to the reader—informed by a critical understanding of the religious traditions under review."
Religious Giving considers the connection between
religion and giving within the Abrahamic traditions. Each contributor begins
with the assumption that there is something inherently right or natural about
the connection. But what exactly is it? To whom should we give, how much should
we give, what is the relationship between our giving and our relationship to
God? Writing for the introspective donor, congregational leader, or student
interested in ways of meeting human needs, the authors focus on the
philosophical or theological dimensions of giving. The goal is not to report on
institutional practices, but to provide thoughtful, guidance to the
reader—informed by a critical understanding of the religious traditions under
review. Used by Permission.

THE WHOLE LIFE OFFEREING
Firmly rooted in Scripture and two millennia of biblical Christian wisdom, The Whole Life Offering is a practical and detailed manual for personal and corporate discipleship and philanthropy."
Christianity to select a single word to describe the breadth and depth of the
relationship between God and human beings, “philanthropic” would be the perfect
choice, according to the Apostle Paul in Titus 3:4. In The Whole Life Offering: Christianity
as Philanthropy, the Rev. Eric Foley proposes philanthropy as the
Bible’s preferred method for how Christians are to understand and experience
the expansiveness of God’s love—and how they themselves are to grow to fullness
in Christ. Firmly rooted in Scripture and two millennia of biblical Christian
wisdom, The Whole Life
Offering is a practical and detailed manual for personal and
corporate discipleship and philanthropy. Used by Permission.
