What does it mean to be generous? And how is generosity changing?

The Generosity Gap unveils new research among U.S. Christians and pastors on their attitudes, perceptions and habits related to generosity. Commissioned by Thrivent Financial, The Generosity Gap explores:

  • How pastors and Christians agree (and don’t) on what it means to be generous
  • Generational differences in how people perceive and practice generosity
  • How financial goals and motivations impact generous habits
  • Giving methods and invitations that strengthen generosity
  • How people express generosity through a variety of habits, including volunteerism, hospitality, gifts and emotional support

The Generosity Gap will help you understand today, strategize for the future and dream up fresh ideas for how to connect Christians’ heart, mind and soul with their potential giving strength.

The Didasko Files
RESOURCES FROM THE LAUSANNE MOVEMENT
The LAUSANNE MOVEMENTis a confessional movement that seeks to articulate the role of today's Church. It links together evangelical movements around the world, and is the largest representative gathering of the Church.
The DIDASKO FILES is a growing series--that takes its name from the New Testament Greek verb "didasko," meaning "I teach"--used by those involved with the Lausanne Movement. These books are meant to serve the world's Church by helping Christians to grow in their faith.
Introducing another wonderful resource from the Lausanne Movement
Handling money is never easy. We must always be open to scrutiny on how it is collected and on how it is spent. The Apostle Paul sets a clear standard for the church, and the principles easily transfer to any charity or organization.
Chris Wright walks us through familiar Bible passages, raising new questions about how we let biblical models shape our approach to financial responsibility. The amount of care taken by the Apostle Paul to ensure that the church was wise, generous, and prudent in collecting money and using it to support one another is remarkable in its vision and its detail.

Imagine a company where people love coming to work and are highly productive on a daily basis. Imagine a company whose top executives, in a quest to create the most fun workplace ever, obliterate labor-management divisions and push decision-making responsibility down to the plant floor. Could such a company compete in today's bottom-line corporate world? Could it even turn a profit? Well, imagine no more.

In Joy at Work, Dennis W. Bakke tells the true story of this extraordinary company--and how, as its co-founder and longtime CEO, he challenged the business establishment with revolutionary ideas that could remake America's organizations. It is the story of AES, whose business model and operating ethos -let's have fun-were conceived during a 90-minute car ride from Annapolis, Maryland, to Washington, D.C. In the next two decades, it became a worldwide energy giant with 40,000 employees in 31 countries and revenues of $8.6 billion. It's a remarkable tale told by a remarkable man: Bakke, a farm boy who was shaped by his religious faith, his years at Harvard Business School, and his experience working for the Federal Energy Administration. He rejects workplace drudgery as a noxious remnant of the Industrial Revolution. He believes work should be fun, and at AES he set out to prove it could be. Bakke sought not the empty fun of the Friday beer blast but the joy of a workplace where every person, from custodian to CEO, has the power to use his or her God-given talents free of needless corporate bureaucracy.

In Joy at Work, Bakke tells how he helped create a company where every decision made at the top was lamented as a lost chance to delegate responsibility--and where all employees were encouraged to take the game-winning shot, even when it wasn't a slam-dunk. Perhaps Bakke's most radical stand was his struggle to break the stranglehold of creating shareholder value on the corporate mind-set and replace it with more timeless values: integrity, fairness, social responsibility, and a sense of fun.

As of 2004 nearly three million self-employed women worked at home, and women continue to start home-based businesses at twice the rate of men. Many of these women left the workplace by choice in order to stay home and raise their children. And though their numbers increase each day, resources for this growing market of entrepreneurs are scarce. Making Work at Home Work shows moms how to develop an entrepreneurial mind-set without sacrificing their families. It covers important topics such as developing a successful business philosophy, balancing time between work and family, setting realistic goals, and handling the challenges of being both "Mommy" and "CEO" while running a profitable home-based business. In addition to including her own experiences, author Mary Byers profiles real moms with home-based businesses who offer their hard-won advice.

    In this lively volume, mathematician John Allen Paulos employs his singular wit to guide us through an unlikely mathematical jungle--the pages of the daily newspaper. From the Senate and sex to celebrities and cults, Paulos takes stories that may not seem to involve math at all and demonstrates how mathematical naïveté can put readers at a distinct disadvantage. Whether he's using chaos theory to puncture economic and environmental predictions, applying logic to clarify the hazards of spin doctoring and news compression, or employing arithmetic and common sense to give us a novel perspective on greed and relationships, Paulos never fails to entertain and enlighten.

    Creativity is crucial to business success. But too often, even the most innovative organization quickly becomes a giant hairball--a tangled, impenetrable mass of rules, traditions, and systems, all based on what worked in the past--that exercises an inexorable pull into mediocrity. Gordon McKenzie worked at Hallmark Cards for thirty years, many of which he spent inspiring his colleagues to slip the bonds of Corporate Normalcy and rise to orbit--to a mode of dreaming, daring and doing above and beyond the rubber-stamp confines of the administrative mind-set. In his deeply funny book, exuberantly illustrated in full color, he shares the story of his own professional evolution, together with lessons on awakening and fostering creative genius.

    Originally self-published and already a business cult classic, this personally empowering and entertaining look at the intersection between human creativity and the bottom line is now widely available to bookstores. It will be a must-read for any manager looking for new ways to invigorate employees, and any professional who wants to achieve his or her best, most self-expressive, most creative and fulfilling work.

    The winners of the Nobel Prize in Economics upend the most common assumptions about how economics works in this gripping and disruptive portrait of how poor people actually live.

    Why do the poor borrow to save? Why do they miss out on free life-saving immunizations, but pay for unnecessary drugs? In Poor Economics, Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo, two award-winning MIT professors, answer these questions based on years of field research from around the world. Called marvelous, rewarding by the Wall Street Journal, the book offers a radical rethinking of the economics of poverty and an intimate view of life on 99 cents a day. Poor Economics shows that creating a world without poverty begins with understanding the daily decisions facing the poor.

    God intends for everyone to thrive economically. He wants us to find provision (supply of what we need) for our daily life. He also desires for us to enjoy the abundance (wealth) of his generosity. However, we live and work in a world where some live extravagantly and have enormous wealth, while many others struggle to scratch out a living, going without even the basic necessities. Questions and concerns about God's role in our provision and wealth weigh heavily on almost every Christian's mind--whether we are rich or poor, an employee or employer, a student, parent, or retiree, a homeowner, tenant, or homeless person. Fortunately, this concern for the economic sphere of our lives is matched by the priority it is given in Scripture. Provision and wealth are far from peripheral issues in the Bible and feature prominently through both Old and New Testaments.

    In this study, we will explore what God's word has to say about:

    - God's original intentions for our economic well-being
    - The effects of the Great Rebellion on our capacity to flourish
    - God's response in redeeming the economic sphere and our part in this
    - How we should treat any wealth we possess
    - What we can reasonably expect from God in regard to our provision
