    1. I told someone who knows Mark Powell that Giving to God has a playful, joyful spirit. He smiled and said, "Yes, he writes like he is."Here are some thoughts from each of the chapters in this book. The book includes a set of discussion questions at the end of each chapter, a sample of which is included here. Part One: Belonging to GodThe purpose of this book is "to offer a biblical vision for financial stewardship." The basic vision is "to find life - the life God wants us to have, in confidence [...]

    2. I've been looking for a book that's more about the theological/spiritual foundation of financial stewardship, and this fit the bill. I wish there was more discussion about "using all our money in ways that please god"--aka, spending with justice and good news in mind. But for a book that's focused on Giving, it's accessible and not scarily fundamentalist.

    3. A book on Christian stewardship that is thought provoking and worth reading more than once. Very interesting ideas about proportionate giving and tithing.

    4. Excellent. Stewardship as an act of worship, an expression of faith, and a discipline for spiritual growth. Well-written. Eminently readable.

    5. A great overview of our call to stewardship of our money, giving to the church, and being generous with all God gives us.

    6. Here's a thoughtful analysis of giving in light of scripture. I recommend this book for those who want to better understand the role that giving plays in Christian's lives.

    7. A straightforward book on what the Bible says about generosity. I don't agree with everything he says, but there is a lot of good content here.
