More Blessed to Give

Straight Talk on Stewardship

John H. MacNaughton

Jan/2000, 182 Pages, PAPERBACK, 6 x 9

ISBN-13: 9780898694130



With years of experience as a parish priest, the author provides a concise and thorough guide to all aspects of the theology and practice of stewardship. His careful, step-by-step approach to giving and planning will help the reader consider a Bible-based theology of money; the development and presentation of the parish budget within this theological context; sacrificial giving and tithing; a detailed structure for the Every Member Canvass; and a program of year-round stewardship. Also included are stewardship success stories from a broad cross section of parishes, sermon examples, and sample mailing pieces for use in the Every Member Canvass.

This classic resource, originally published as Stewardship: Myth and Methods, is a valuable development tool with a proven track record that's highly praised by clergy and lay leaders throughout the church.

John H. MacNaughton served in several parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of Minnesota before being called as rector of Christ Church, San Antonio, Texas, in 1975, a position he held until becoming Bishop of West Texas in 1986. Bishop MacNaughton retired in 1996.
