Every Christian is called to give, but how often do we resent the sacrifice of things we could enjoy ourselves? In this concise book, Joel Morris explains that our understanding and practice of generosity is based on our knowledge of God. While many books explain that we should give, Morris dives into the why of giving. Christians can afford to be generous because we have been given so much. Generosity overflows from our life in Christ. To whom will the generosity of the gospel flow through us? In what ways can we show the heart of God to those we meet?
Joel Morris is the Executive Director of Union School of Theology in Bridgend, Wales. He is on the leadership team of Grace Community Church, Porthcawl. He was a missionary with Operation Mobilisation on the Logos 2 ship before starting a doctorate and career in Materials Engineering which took him from Aerospace to the Nuclear sector.
This is a book that lifts our vision to heaven to see the all–generous God, and then urges us on to respond to this with a radical generosity towards the local church and fuelling gospel work. A must–read for all believers but particularly for those of us who have a tendency to forget that all that we have and enjoy is God’s and not our own.

If we really believed that it is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35), we would not ask, ‘How much do I have to give?’ but, ‘How much can I give?’ In this much–needed book, Joel Morris shows us that a generous heart is the happiest heart, for it aims to imitate and glorify God.
