E. G. Jay Link of Stewardship Ministries is writing a series on what the New Testament teaches about how Christians should give. Over the next three months he will send eNewsletter subscribers a video lesson from the Better Way Giving Series. Titles from the series include:
A Motivated Giver
A Joyful Giver
A Reliable Giver
An Extravagant Giver
A Selfless Giver
An Expectant Giver
Each lesson is packed with New Testament scripture that either instructs or illustrates a specific giving characteristic that can be personally applied. The first in the series ‘A Motivated Giver’ is available from the Stewardship Ministries website.

E.G. “Jay” Link’s latest book Who’s In Charge Here? Beginning Your Life Stewardship Journey is now available. The PDF and Kindle versions are free and can be downloaded on the Stewardship Ministries website HERE. Hard copies of the book are also available with discounts for bulk ordering. This book is a great resource for Churches who are looking to encourage a biblical focus on stewardship and giving. Jay Link gives a concise picture of how church leaders and pastors need to live out the principles of good stewardship and giving in order for their congregation to ‘get it.’ It is not something that can only be preached from the pulpit, it must be modeled as well!
I read the pre-published version of the book over Christmas 2012. It was like a Christmas gift – I could not put it down. A must read for every Christian, I hope the book will be downloaded and purchased by people across the world and translated into many languages.
Who’s In Charge Here? is a tremendous generosity resource that should be an essential part of any generosity reading list.

It does not happen very often that you stumble on a website and then get so excited about the content that you immediately make contact with the website owners. That happened to me when I discovered ‘The Generosity Gameplan’ (http://generositygameplan.com/).
I ordered a free copy of 7 Steps to Excellent Giving that Does Good and Feels Great and was so impressed that I called John Stanley, author of the book ‘Connected for Good: A Gameplan for a Generous Life’ on which the 7 Steps are based. John then sent me an overview of the book. I do not want to give too much away since people need to order the book and 7 Steps themselves. However, John Stanley’s approach to generosity and giving is fresh, focusing on relationships instead of just the check! Here are 3 quotes from the book:
‘God has wired us in such a way that we run best on renewable energy sources generated in relationship. When we see God in the hearts of others, when we build bridges within and across tribal lines, this energy multiplies as it moves from person to person’
‘The old paradigm of check-writing and volunteering can feel exhausting and futile when it lacks the connection that our hearts crave. But building in connection turns our time, talent, and treasure into renewable currencies in the form of relationships, strengths, and resources.’
‘Our giving is successful when it fulfils our heart’s desire for connection with God and others.’
The emphasis is therefore on relationships and connected generosity. Get the 7 Steps outline and book. We are often saying generosity is transformational and John Stanley’s material is as well!
This DVD is broken down into video segments covering all the different topics in the book. You can use the book as well, but it also stands alone. A great resource for groups to watch and discuss together.
