It can seem like all you ever hear these days is bad news. Yet in the midst of contentious political posturing and stories of communities in trouble are stories of love, reconciliation, and restoration. Through a variety of innovative programs and initiatives, and flying mostly under the national news radar, Christian business leaders are bringing hope to blighted urban communities in our greatest cities. A Disruptive Generosity shares their inspiring stories.
From Dallas to New York City, from London to Singapore, lives and communities are being changed through strategic stewardship. These stories will challenge marketplace Christians to find innovative ways to use their resources as God's hands and feet in a hurting world.

wheelsmsChicopee, MAAge: 55-65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Transforming lives through strategic stewardshipAugust 7, 2017wheelsmsChicopee, MAAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4A Disruptive Generosity: Stories of Transforming Cities Through Strategic Giving by Mac Pier is the follow up to his previous book, A Disruptive Gospel. In the first book, the author lays out the philosophy and strategy to using generosity to reach cities with the gospel. In this book, he tells stories of how it is taking place.
In this volume, the author weaves together three big ideas.
The first is Gods vision for the world as referenced in the book of Isaiah. Isaiah gives us the big picture of a God who comes to transform cities, who causes nations and nature to rejoice in him. Isaiah announces the coming of a Savior who will be the ultimate expression of the generosity of God in the gospel.
The second is that of movement. A spiritual movement is taking place when the Christian population is growing faster than the general population. A movement is taking place when the church is making an impact on the great social realities of a city or nation. A movement is taking place when Christian leaders are finding themselves in places of cultural influence.
The third big idea is that of a relational network, a movement of friendship.
The book contains 31 chapters in which the author interviews 40 leaders in 10 countries around the world who are using generosity for the sake of the gospel. While you can easily read the book in one sitting, you could also read one chapter a day over the course of a month and let the stories sink in. The interviews and stories are designed to encourage the reader to think of creative ways to use their own resources to help fuel the advance of the gospel.
