Pastorally-applied teaching on giving; and on the need for financial accountability - for Treasurers, those who count the collection etc. Includes questions for reflection, which could be used in a workplace fellowship or home group.
Generosity is part of the Christian life. And the money we give has to be looked after with integrity. The Apostle Paul teaches on both these aspects of handling money.

For general use in church life, or for a giving appeal or building project. Chris Wright takes the same passages, and opens out the Apostle's teaching on how to handle money with integrity and transparency. For Treasurers or for anyone who is responsible for special appeals. We are not aware of any other publication which does this job.
