Unlocking the secret of joyful giving.

A quick read on an important topic, Alcorn's general premise is not unique to many books written on Christian stewardship. What is unique is the winsome presentation of Alcorn's argument; careful to avoid guilt, self centeredness, or false promises in the Christian exhortation to be generous. Alcorn has mined Scripture throughly here; and it is a great resource.

My one tiny quibble on the book could be summed in one question. Why don't we just give everything away? And there Alcorn is less clear about the stewardship of not just giving, but of everyday life that we do have to keep for ourselves. But to ask him to write at length on that would have veered off into territory that I think would have harmed his central thought in the book (and given selfish American Evangelicals a "way out"). So a tiny quibble does remain, but only because the wisdom of this book is just that good and I'd like for him to write more. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. - Jim Elliot
A first-century Hebrew walks alone on a hot afternoon, staff in hand. His shoulders are stooped, sandals covered with dirt, tunic stained with sweat. But he doesn't stop to rest. He has pressing business in the city.
