The book is an easy read.

I first heard of this book when one of my church members recommended getting a group together to study the lessons in this book.

This is an excellent eye and soul opening book! Makes you re-think things in your life and in your church, re-evaluate your priorities, excuses, and actions. Re-grounds you in prayer and re-centers your focus. An excellent easy read, easy to get concepts that are potentially soul shaping and infectious :)

As a United Methodist pastor, our church decided on this study for a stewardship series but it is so much more than that. I was thrilled to realize that it took us back to the principles of membership commitment in the United Methodist Church. The only thing missing is a section on witness now that the General Conference made the change to the membership vows. Maybe John Ed could write a supplement to the book to include witness. I would recommend this even as a tool prior to new members joining so they know what is expected of them.

We are reading this as part of a churchwide study. I recommend it very highly fro group study or as a solo read. This book is so easy to read but at the same time it is very insightful. I am even using it with my teenage youth group. This book has lessons for all ages and stages of faith. I have underlined and filled all the margins with notes. The chapters are the perfect length for a daily devotional or it can be read all at once. My journey with God has definitely benefited from this wonderful book.

I bought this myself to prepare for my church's stewardship campaign. I read the book in a week and can't wait for the rest of my congregation to share its wisdom. Illustrations are varied and spread through the chapters. The week on being present at church is the best. Why should football games rate more attendence than weekly church services? Large print and graphics will make the 40 days go fast.

I first heard of this book when one of my church members recommended getting a group together to study the lessons in this book. I have been reading, thinking and praying through each chapter. I like that it is not "preachy" or too fundamental but a real-world approach to deepening spiritual understanding.

Rev. Mathison delivers a good, down-home and accessible daily devotional to go with the Stewardship Campaign of the same name. Many people (especially older Christians who are used to "the country preacher" type) in my congregation found this a great read without the esoteric language of some other authors, and the friendly style with which Rev. Mathison writes is a great way to bring people into the discussion, no matter their age. I do wish he had used less of the storytelling tangents (random, quick stories/quips thrown in to the middle of an explanation), but that is probably just my personal taste, as some people do like that sort of thing.

Another piece which kept this from getting 5 stars, is that the membership vows have been updated for the UMC and are not reflected in this book: prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. "Witness" is pretty much left out as a named theme, but the way I got around that was to plug "witness" in to Commitment Sunday. Thus my congregation was witnessing to their faith by pledging to our common ministry in 2015. It worked, and the readings even go with it without explicitly naming it as "witness," but further consonance would be appreciated considering this change happened in 2008.

The Study as a whole campaign is a good one and is very simple to execute. I would give the actual book 3 stars, but the campaign as a whole upped the star count since it is such a good study especially for a church with limited resources.

Reading this book as a group at my church and the pastor is tying in services with it. It has offered some great insight for forming community and my part in it. Great read. Set up in 40 mini-chapters to read 1 a day.

Our church has wonderful studies and this book is currently being used. The church needs participants to buy their own books and they cost nearly 20.00 retail not really in my budget. I waa able to get the book for less than half of that from amazon!
The book is truly transforming and I highly recommend it for a personal read or a small group study. I was blessed enough to meet the author when he did a training about this very book. I hope you get a chance to study this and go to the training if one is in your area. You will not be sorry you purchased the book and if you are part of a small church as I am buying on amazon is a great way to make studies affordable!!
