We all know that everything we have is a gift from God. But sometimes it's hard to know just how to give "back" to God. How much is enough? What does the Bible really say? What should giving look like in our everyday lives? Filled with good news for followers of Jesus, Mark Allan Powell's "Giving to God" shows Christians the way to a better life and a better relationship with their money -- and with God.
Powell presents stewardship as an act of worship, an expression of faith, and a discipline for spiritual growth. Faithful use of our time, talents, and money starts with a deep, satisfying relationship with the God to whom we belong. We can then learn, says Powell, to give gladly and generously out of our heartfelt connection with God. Informative, concise, and eminently practical (including discussion questions), "Giving to God" gives us resources for best using the treasures, material and otherwise, that God has given us.
