Rev. Mathison delivers a good, down-home and accessible daily devotional to go with the Stewardship Campaign of the same name. Many people (especially older Christians who are used to "the country preacher" type) in my congregation found this a great read without the esoteric language of some other authors, and the friendly style with which Rev. Mathison writes is a great way to bring people into the discussion, no matter their age. I do wish he had used less of the storytelling tangents (random, quick stories/quips thrown in to the middle of an explanation), but that is probably just my personal taste, as some people do like that sort of thing.

Another piece which kept this from getting 5 stars, is that the membership vows have been updated for the UMC and are not reflected in this book: prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. "Witness" is pretty much left out as a named theme, but the way I got around that was to plug "witness" in to Commitment Sunday. Thus my congregation was witnessing to their faith by pledging to our common ministry in 2015. It worked, and the readings even go with it without explicitly naming it as "witness," but further consonance would be appreciated considering this change happened in 2008.

The Study as a whole campaign is a good one and is very simple to execute. I would give the actual book 3 stars, but the campaign as a whole upped the star count since it is such a good study especially for a church with limited resources.

I love this book! A few years ago our pastor had our whole church use it as a book study. We were using it to help us become more involved with stewardship in our church. I really enjoyed it. A couple of years ago I decided to reread it as part of a Lenten challenge to myself. It has 40 short chapters which works out perfectly. I couldn't ask for better topics: how God loves us, prayer, how important it is to be part of your church family, etc. Last year I went to get the book out for the season of lent and remembered that I had let someone borrow it (I have no idea who). I was thrilled when I saw the Kindle edition. Now I can't lose it! I am again reading it for Lent. Such a great read!

Many many many many examples of truth in Christianity. Not much new thought

As a United Methodist pastor, our church decided on this study for a stewardship series but it is so much more than that. I was thrilled to realize that it took us back to the principles of membership commitment in the United Methodist Church. The only thing missing is a section on witness now that the General Conference made the change to the membership vows. Maybe John Ed could write a supplement to the book to include witness. I would recommend this even as a tool prior to new members joining so they know what is expected of them.

Our church has wonderful studies and this book is currently being used. The church needs participants to buy their own books and they cost nearly 20.00 retail not really in my budget. I waa able to get the book for less than half of that from amazon!
The book is truly transforming and I highly recommend it for a personal read or a small group study. I was blessed enough to meet the author when he did a training about this very book. I hope you get a chance to study this and go to the training if one is in your area. You will not be sorry you purchased the book and if you are part of a small church as I am buying on amazon is a great way to make studies affordable!!

This is an excellent eye and soul opening book! Makes you re-think things in your life and in your church, re-evaluate your priorities, excuses, and actions. Re-grounds you in prayer and re-centers your focus. An excellent easy read, easy to get concepts that are potentially soul shaping and infectious :)

I first heard of this book when one of my church members recommended getting a group together to study the lessons in this book. I have been reading, thinking and praying through each chapter. I like that it is not "preachy" or too fundamental but a real-world approach to deepening spiritual understanding.
This book was use my 120 people in our church as a Bible Study. The subjects in the book relate to the vows of membership in the United Methodist Church in the United States. There is also another book that can be used with it titled Transformed Giving that was use in our church as a Stewardship campaign. The book is an easy read.
John Ed Mathison, the author, uses Biblical principals, humorous stories throughout the book that keeps the reader
intrigued by his style of writing.
