Portraits of Givers takes a case study approach to giving, reviewing the circumstances in and around each biblical giver’s life, examining how he or she arrived at the gift or offering, and analyzing God’s response.
This book unearths the truth scattered throughout scripture that God responds to a giving person favorably. It vividly brings out the key point that giving has both spiritual and material benefits for the giver. It also determines (based on the case studies) God’s standards regarding giving and highlights the dangerous fine lines that surround giving in vain.
Profiled Old Testament givers include Cain and Abel, Abraham, David, Solomon, and Hannah, while the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ and Paul the Apostle are discussed as the foundations for New Testament giving. A final warning against allowing oneself to become seduced by the power of Mammon balances the discourse on giving, of which money plays a significant part. He concludes with present day givers and the results they obtained
With special emphasis on giving with clear convictions and correcting people’s views about giving in church, Portraits of Givers offers an inspirational message of giving as a great personal investment—in both the here and now and in the life to come.
