This book is a compilation of over 200 offering stories, quotes, and illustrations. Each illustration also contains a note line where pastors or administrators can indicate the date on which the illustration was used, preventing the potential embarassment of reusing an illustration. This is a must have companion for any pastor or church administrator. In the author's own words: "The contents in this book are an attempt to assist those in the ministry by providing a useful tool for offering time, bound in a single book. "Disclaimer: These volumes are not quick fixes, guaranteed to alter giving behavioral patterns. "God's Word and principles as well as examples are our greatest source and inspiration to give. As an extended tool, offering illustrations, stores and quotes are like windows on a house that allows one to see beyond the four walls. "I hope the Lord would use this book to inspire you, and help you help others fulfill their responsibility as believers in supporting and supplying the storehouse of God as well as enjoying the blessing of God and joy of giving."
