Working in a non-profit ministry, finding funding can be a huge part of my job. At least that is what I used to think. The book "The Sower" really changed my thinking from fun-raising to stewardship. The book recommended working through this study bible to learn more about stewardship. I now understand that it is God's job to do the fund-raising and my job to plant and steward, not just the funds he brings in, but the people he brings in as well. Finally, I loved the fact that all of the studies, examples and references came from leaders in a number of Christian denominations and not just from one denominational viewpoint.
I ordered this Bible to get me to thinking about others in the world and what they have and do not have. I ordered one for my daugher so that she could have the same spiritual experience also. We all need to reach out more to other Christians in the world and pray for them.
