Giving to God

Mark Allan Powell

$22.99

Paperback
We all know that everything we have is a gift from God. But some-times 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, "Giving to God" shows Christians the way to a better life and a better relationship both with their money and with God.Popular author and Bible scholar Mark Allan 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 treasures 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. In the second half of "Giving to God" Powell applies these principles to today's complicated world. After providing answers to practical questions about living and giving, Powell lays out a specific plan that Christians will be able to embrace as both a duty and a delight.
