From the Publisher
Here is a rich portrayal of redemption! In God So Loved, He Gave we are challenged to don the familiar story of salvation as a vestment more precious than the king’s crown jewels. As we robe ourselves we take delight in the story’s often surprising and baffling, but always precious, truths. Sparkling quotes enliven each chapter. — Bruce Waltke, , Author

God So Loved, He Gave is an amazing book. In it Kelly Kapic deftly moves from our being recipients of all God’s generous gifts through Christ to our being stewards of God’s gifts as we share them with others. This book is both encouraging and challenging. It should be read attentively and prayerfully. — Jerry Bridges, , Author

The Heidelberg Catechism tells us that “It is impossible that those grafted into Christ by true faith should not bring forth fruits of thankfulness.” This book by Kelly Kapic shows why. It shows biblically and theologically anyone who grasps the nature of God and of his gospel will live a life poured out in acts of generosity, especially to the poorest and most needy. I’m glad to recommend it. — Tim Keller, , Pastor

God So Loved, He Gave is a work of rare theological and spiritual perceptiveness. As it conducts its readers through the movement of God's ways with the world, it invites them to contemplate the divine works and to be formed in godliness by them. This is practical Christian divinity at its best: intellectually astute, humane, and animated by the gospel's generosity. — John Webster, , Professor

Our cultural environment seems to assume a world as a given rather than a gift, debt rather than exchange, limited resources rather than “enough to go around.” How refreshing it is to step into the world of the Triune God, who not only gives it all but creates a new society that anticipates his everlasting shalom. Kapic leads us into the breathtaking vistas of this new creation, with beauty and wisdom. This book itself is a welcome gift to Christ’s body. — Michael Horton, , Professor

Many books today address the practical questions of stewardship and generosity. But few do this while making the crucial connection between the gospel and giving. I highly recommend God So Loved, He Gave for every recipient of God’s grace who desires to become a participant in divine generosity. — Howard Dayton, , Founder

God so Loved, He Gave: Entering the Movement of Divine Generosity, is a must read. Jesus himself said it is more blessed to give than to receive. Entering the movement of divine generosity is what we all ought to be concerned about. This book is a great book; it is beautifully written, practical, helpful, and biblically sound. I encourage all Christians, particularly those seeking to experience the blessings that come out of generosity, to read this book. The blessings we receive from generosity are not limited to strictly financial blessings, but often are the blessings of love and encouragement that we get from sharing our lives with others. These blessings are more precious than silver and gold. — John Perkins, , Founder and President

This fine book is an elegant portrayal of a marvelously generous God, who calls his people to show forth his generosity in a world that he sent his Son to redeem. — Richard J. Mouw, , President and Professor

In this book Kelly Kapic uses his considerable wisdom and skill to unpack the story of God’s generosity and what it means to belong to and follow a generous God. At stake is nothing less than what it means to follow Christ faithfully in today’s world. Kapic is a clear communicator who cherishes Christ, cares for the church, and conducts all the right conversations across the fields of biblical theology, systematic theology, historical theology, and practical theology. The result is a rare combination—a robust, warm-hearted, accessible book that glories our generous Triune God and will instruct and inspire readers throughout the church. — Justin Taylor, , Managing Editor

“A thought-provoking, deeply needed vision of our calling to gospel-living.” --(Carolyn Custis James, author of Half the Church)
