After these she goes into practical issues, identifying and removing hindrances, showing it can work anywhere, and building your faith with stories of these teachings working. She also gives some tips on newsletters that are helpful.
Perhaps my favorite part of the book is the section where she gives a string of scriptures to help you overcome discouragement. It's placed at a point in the book where a missionary will naturally start to become discouraged unless they are boosted by God. She put a long list of scriptures there with some text so that you get the encouragement on the spot.
The author has a long experiential history on this subject and so she writes with a kind of authority that is far from ivory tower teachings. She is like a veteran soldier writing from the trenches to tell new soldiers what to do and how to survive in the trenches of the spiritual war that we are fighting...no more than survive...how to thrive. I think this is a GREAT book.
I am transitioning from the pastorate to a faith based mission. So I personally am struggling with many of the issues that she raises in this book. A friend who is coaching me recommended this book. I also picked up a few others on this subject. After perusing them all, this one drew me in. I'm now thinking it's so good that I need to have my whole family read it so we are all on the same page. I don't know if I will actually do that, but it gives you the feeling I have as I've read it.
This book really has impacted me the most in knocking out unhealthy attitudes about fund raising from my heart...convicting me and leading me to change rather quickly...laying a biblical foundation for fund raising (she focuses on friend raising), and providing practical tips for immediate use. (She talks about writing thank you notes immediately after receiving donations). However, some of her tips are antiquated electronically and need to be updated. It's just one or two little things though.
I think that this book should be at the front of the line for any missionary or campus minister who is raising support to do a good work for the Lord. If you have only a few bucks to spend on this topic (a reasonable guess I suppose), get this book. It probably be one that you keep nearby as you raise support for your work for God.
