Reviews - What do our customers think?
Giving and Stewardship  Jul 10, 2005
I found this book to have just the information I was seeking. I serve on our church's Fundraising Task Force. We needed information that made sense and guided us through the minefield of improving stewardship and giving to support the day-to-day activities in our church. I have used other Callahan books and found this one to be very useful in our work. It refocused our efforts toward taking care of our givers to improve our giving and stewardship. Great book that is very easy to read, understand, which makes our task of fundraising more congregation and community based.
A very personal perspective on stewardship  May 16, 2002
The book looked a bit simplistic at first-- short, straight-forward outline... I thought I'd probably read through, mark if off the list of things I've been referred to read, then never look at the book again.

What a surprise!

Callahan walks you through several principles about giving-- and how these principles, when enacted, help reach the potential God places in each follower of Christ through His Spirit. He speaks of people wanting to give to winning causes, and how the fact that we speak the vision in a positive (or needy) way changes people's perspective and willingness to give. He speaks of "the ask" and of other great concepts, many of which have much to do with leadership in other areas besides the finances of the Church.

I'm impressed by the practicality of this work, as well. And, of how Callahan offers useable space in the actual text for you to jot your ideas, thoughts, and how you might implement some of these principles.

Also, if you've ever wondered if "special offerings" willl detract from "general funds" (i.e. "Will people give to this and forget about that...?"), KC addresses that, in depth, as well.

A great book. You can read it in a few hours, but it will take much longer to digest-- even though it can be implemented immediately!

Excellent book  Jan 14, 2002
An excellent book that outlines seven principles of stewardship, such as the importance of linking mission to giving and that people live into the expectations that are set for them. The book has information useful in diagnosing a parish and includes a lot of practical advice. A must-have for those interested in Christian Stewardship.
Great Tips for Building Stewardship  Jun 26, 2000
I appreciate Callahan's practical tips on training, teamwork, and positive expectations. His emphasis on vision and mission, rather than meeting the budget, is at the heart of understanding giving. If your church wants to know how to grow stewardship responsivness this is the book for you.
Straight Talk on Stewardship  May 5, 2000
Far too often, "stewardship" in church parlance means "money". In this book, Kennon Callahan explains in simple terms that individual generosity comes from inspired corporate stewardship. Churches with compelling missions of social action engage their members' hearts, and their pocketbooks follow. Callahan's book reminds sincere church members that stewardship isn't a financial decision but a spiritual decision. All priests, pastors and lay leader who want their parishes to grow should read this book.
