4 Resources on Generosity in our Faith

As I prepared my message this past week entitled “Generous,” I utilized a number of resources alongside of the Bible that I found helpful in shaping my thoughts. Here are four that I thought were worth sharing.

Generous Justice by Tim Keller – a great take on what it means to be the people of God in word and deed by a committed evangelical.

The Rise of Christianity by Rodney Stark – a sociological take on what contributed to the rise of Christianity with particular attention to the role of mercy ministries.

Freedom of Simplicity by Richard Foster – one of Foster’s lesser known works that speaks powerfully to the role of simplicity and the grace of giving in the Christian life.

The latest issue of Christian History magazine on hospitals and healthcare.

Maybe you have your own resources alongside the Bible that you’d like to share. I’d love to hear about them.
