    Let Us Give

    Scriptural Reflections for Introducing Offerings

    Every week the offering plate is passed in churches, and every week members of the congregation meet it with varying levels of interest. Many people absentmindedly reach for their checkbooks, while others let the plate pass . . . again. For some, the weekly routine provides background music for exchanged whispers or reflection on where to eat lunch after the service.

    This pastor-tested, scriptural resource equips the pastor to draw the congregation's attention to the significance of what lies behind the offering--the spiritual act of stewardship. Fifty-two thematic Bible readings--one for each Sunday of the year--help the pastor lead the congregation into a deeper understanding of God's perspective on giving. Includes a complete Scripture index.

    "This book can . . . help bring biblical perspective back into 'taking up' the offerings."

    --James R. Dennis
    Senior Pastor of Newark Baptist Temple, Heath, Ohio

    "A practical tool. . . .An uplifting, encouraging, and challenging reminder from God's Word that giving goes beyond what is placed in the offering plate."

    --Karl Stelzer
    Dean of the Bible Department, Pensacola Christian College
