An excellent book of how to view giving and financial stewardship towards God and the church. I enjoy almost anything Dr. Powell writes and this certainly is a great addition to his works. I'm not sure how feasible his "everyone pays a fair share" plan would work in a congregation because honestly its those members who pay far more than their fair share that help ministry to continue or who help create funding for new ministries within a congregation. If however, it could be use to inspire the others to bring their giving up to where it should be, then it could be a useful strategy. It would also require a great amount of trust, I mean huge, and I don't know how many congregations could actually go through with it. Overall though for a person who thinks stewardship is just giving money as a chore, this book turns that idea on its head. It helps the reader to see financial giving not as a burden but as an important part of worship.
