Wealthy Christians need help!
That's why we wrote this book! Over decades of working with generous, wealthy Christians, we have come to an important realization: There is a deep unmet need in the church for developing the gift of giving in wealthy Christians and their families. But there is also good news!
"God's Word speaks about wealth and money to every Christian-from the wealthiest to the poorest. Regardless of your financial status, you should know what it says." - PASTOR ROBERT MORRIS, GATEWAY CHURCH, DALLAS, TEXAS
Many wealthy Christian families have a deep hunger to grow in the gift of generosity. They want:
- A deeper understanding of wealth and generosity from a biblical perspective.
- To understand the special purpose and call God has given them along with their wealth.
- To grow in their faith and help their family members grow closer to Jesus.
- To give effectively to their heartfelt causes, and they want to make a difference.
Many simply want to know how to do it! This book was created to help.
"If you and your family are interested in being more effective in supporting Kingdom causes, this book is a valuable tool and a must read." - David H. Wills, President Emeritus, National Christian Foundation
"To optimize your Kingdom impact, you must ask a different set of planning questions. This book gives you the right questions to ask and then shares a host of true stories of how families and the world have been radically changed when they dared to ask and answer the right planning questions. After reading this book you will not just know more, you will start living differently!" - E. G. "Jay" Link, Director of Stewardship Planning, Taylor University
"This book will be a blessing to anyone looking to grow in the gift of generosity" - Todd Harper, Founder and President, Generous Giving
