This book should be read by every Pastor or church administrator. It will realign your perspective on why people give and how to generate more giving from the congregation. It also offers 10 practical things you can do right now to get started. I really appreciated it.

Cliff Christopher does an excellent job of reminding us what we have been doing wrong for many years in the church. His work in the not for profit sector also reminds us of how competitive the giving business has become, and what the church must do to be current.

This is a great follow-up to Clif's first book with many practical suggestions and examples. I recommend you read "Not Your Parents Offering Plate" first and then this one immediately after.

Mr. Christopher makes a compelling case for a new approach to church fund raising, with concrete suggestions and a new vision for the role of the pastor in this process. As a lay person and current co-chair of my church's finance committee, I found this book to be inspiring about what the modern church can do to stay relevant in today's world. This approach is not primarily about money, but rather about how we can convince people that being a part of a faith community is integral to being a mature Christian. I hear a lot about having a personal relationship with Jesus from various sources, but I believe we cannot fully be in communion with God unless we accept that we are a part of the body of Christ. In other words, we need to be connected to other believers - working, serving, loving, worshiping, studying, etc. with them. I think this book promotes that view, too, and I was very glad to receive its message. I look forward to trying to implement this program in our church!

I read the authors first book and thought it was incredible. This book seems to be a rehashing of the same stuff. So if you read the first one- you are probably good.

I have read Christopher but have not, as yet, used it to formulate my plan for stewardshipithin my church. It is very helpful and will be a prime resource in the plan.
