Or, who hasn't used these gimmicks on others? As Wes Willmer writes, "Generosity is the natural outcome of God's transforming work in individuals when they are conformed to the image of Christ." Fundraising and giving are not simply "drops in the bucket." Capital campaigns and raising funds go deeper than the money. They are spiritual activities in becoming more like Christ. A Revolution in Generosity is a work by some of the best shcolars and practitioners on the subject of funding Christian organizations. As Willmer writes, "The foundation for realizing a revolution in generosity is understanding the biblical view of possessions, generosity, and asking for resources.
Wes Willmer, Ph.D., has initiated over one million dollars in research grants to study nonprofit organizations and is responsible for 23 books, including Revolution in Generosity: Transforming Stewards to be Rich Toward God; God and Your Stuff: The Vital Link Between Possessions and Your Soul; and The Prospering Parachurch: Enlarging the Boundaries of God's Kingdom. Board involvement includes: chair of the board of the Christian Stewardship Association (CSA), founding member of the CASE commission on Philanthropy, the executive committee of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability
