Plastic Donuts by Jeff Anderson

This is a small book that packs a big punch.  It gives a different perspective to our tithing.  This author addresses it as from a child. He explains a child offers someone a plastic donut.  The child gets excited as the receiver acts overjoyed at receiving this plastic toy. 

Jeff Anderson brings up the questions,  "Do we think about if God cares what we give?" and "Do we ponder God's reaction or our own feelings?"

This book challenges us to grow more generous.  It will help us all focus on our Father's reaction to our giving. The top four tips are:
1. The amount matters
2. We determine the amount 
3. We give according to ability
4. The heart makes the gift count.

We give because of what God wants for us, not from us.  This book spotlights a new way to enjoy God forever.

Unfinished by Steven K Scott

Product Details

This is my second book that I have read from Steven Scott.  The first one was Jesus Mission, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  This book makes Jesus' mission come alive and explains how we are included.

As you read you will come to understand the four callings from Jesus that empower and complete our purpose on earth. The author explains we are to passionately pursue and accomplish the callings He has set before us.

It is powerful to read that we have a purpose and calling since we live in such a troubled world. It is not natural to obey God. There is more to this life than mere chance.

This book can spark a fire of emotion and passion. It tells of the intimacy with God that we so desire.

The author brings up many points to motivate our faith, but he includes action suggestions along with it. Without the action, the main point remains just words on a page.

I recommend this book as a filler to our Bible reading. It can stir our hungry spirit.
