Format: Perfect Paperback
I bought this book because I work for a faith based charity. Part of my work plan this year includes increase church giving, and I wanted to see If it had any thoughts on the ways one might reach the faithful. It was a quick read (it isn't very long) and had some great thoughts that I am working to impliment. I like the idea that you can't just have once or twice a year opportunity to get involved in giving, as most churches do (the typical stewardship drive). Joined makes an argument for having a typical Stewardship Drive, but goes beyond that. I think faith based agencies have to start thinking that same way.
