The Money Challenge by Art Rainer

Practical and accessible, but I really wish Art had dispensed with the hokey story about the young lady who's finances are out of control so she goes to her "Generous Banker" for weekly counseling sessions. The principles would have been better prese ...more

How to Be Rich by Andy Stanley

Don't let the title offend you. Andy is not talking about the prosperity gospel. His thesis is simple. Most Americans, relative to the rest of the world, are rich. We don't believe we're rich because we are always comparing ourselves to people who ar ...more

“We’re not continuing to write the Bible — that is complete — but what Jesus “began” to do in his three-year earthly ministry and “continued” through his church in Acts he continues through us today. We are the next episode. We’re still in the same season, and the finale is still to come. Every believer now has a part of the story to write. The”

“It is true that a fisherman may fish and never catch any fish, but, if so, he is not much of a fisherman. And so, if there were no souls saved when I preached, perhaps I might find some way of satisfying my conscience, but I don’t know what it is yet. If my hearers are not converted, I feel like I have wasted my time; I have lost the exercise of brain and heart. I feel as if I lost my hope and lost my life, unless I find for my Lord some of his blood-bought ones.10”

“Some churches seem to confuse multiculturalism with the gospel itself. I’ve even heard some talk about “the gospel of racial reconciliation.” While I understand their heart, I think that’s deadly dangerous nomenclature. The gospel is fundamentally about God’s reconciliation of us to himself in Christ (a vertical reconciliation), and the fruit of that reconciliation is reconciliation with everything else (horizontal reconciliations), including racial reconciliation. (As a general rule of thumb, anytime you hear “the gospel of . . .” and what follows is something other than Christ’s finished work on the cross, chances are a fruit of salvation is being substituted for its means!)”

“We quit doing “baby dedications” and now hold “parent commissionings,” in which parents covenant with the church to raise up their children for the mission of God and to release them freely into that mission whenever and wherever God calls them. I make the parents promise, “If God calls my child one day to a difficult mission field, I promise not to stand in the way, but to bless and encourage my child to follow God.” We don’t need to dedicate a baby — the baby already belongs to God. It is the parents who need to dedicate themselves to raise up the child for the mission of God. We”

“Business guru John Kotter says that the place most leaders fail in effecting change is in assuming their people understand the need for change more than they actually do.”
