Overview

'Giving Away the Collection Plate...gives a great apologetic for believers and the church to be generous agents engaged in God's mission.'

Ed Stetzer, President of LifeWay Research

'This book will confront you with the clear biblical mandates of what the church, as the body of Christ, is to be in the world.'

Jerry Rankin, President Emeritus, International Mission Board, SBC

'Read this book only if you want your norm to be wrecked by the generosity of Jesus.'

Jason C. Dukes, Author of Live Sent: You Are a Letter and Beyond My Church

What would happen in your church if you gave away all of the tithes and offerings for a week? What if God pushed you further and asked you to give everything away for an entire year?

One small church plant in Mississippi felt that push from God. As they prayed about how to accurately depict Christ to their community, they were prompted to give away their tithes and offerings for an entire year.

Giving Away the Collection Plate exposes the work of Traceway Church and explores the dynamic relationship between generosity and spiritual growth. Regardless of your background, this book will inspire you to consider missional generosity. It will force you to ask, 'How can our church become a better physical representation of Christ in our community?' It may even provoke you to the point that you become radically generous, as God is generous toward us.
