COUNSELS ON STEWARDSHIP

We never needed close connection with God more than we need it today"

Person

Stewardship

is properly managing the resources that God has committed to our care. This

volume gathers together all of Ellen White's published statements on the

subject. Topics discussed include tithing, indebtedness, charity, making a will

and soliciting funds from outside sources. What about speculating in the

markets? Does God require us to dispose of our property? How can children be

taught economy? What is the divine antidote for covetousness? The inspired

principles of the Divine economy in this volume will repay rich dividends.

"We can't take it with us, but we can send it ahead before we

RELIGIOUS 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."

David

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."

Eric

Were

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.
