Description

A provocative look at the connection between faith and giving

It's time to talk about the most taboo subject in the church--money. If you're like the average American Christian, you give away just 3 percent of your income, well below God's clear standard. Perhaps you hold back out of fear that you won't have enough, or from resentment about being asked to give at all. But by giving too little, the one who misses out most is you.

In You of Little Faith, Ryan Thomas draws from a wealth of biblical passages and contemporary examples to illustrate a truth that is often overlooked: giving aggressively will unlock God's blessing in your life like nothing else can. When you give beyond what seems reasonable, his response will go beyond what seems possible. The end result? Less worry, more faith, and a closer walk with him.

"The root of the word miserable is miser. The stingier you are, the more unhappy you will be. But if you learn to trust God's promises and become big-hearted and openhanded with what God has given you, you'll have more joy than you ever imagined. If you want to be truly happy, here is the guidebook."--Rick Warren, founder and senior pastor of Saddleback Church and author of The Purpose-Driven Life

"As I've gotten to know Ryan, I've been struck by how alive God feels in both his life and his church. The principles in this book explain why. I believe God will use You of Little Faith to awaken and liberate many toward the kind of generosity that can radically change our lives, our churches, and our world."--Todd Proctor, strategic church networks director of Alpha USA

Ryan Thomas Holladay is the senior pastor of Lower Manhattan Community Church in downtown New York City. When he began as pastor less than a decade ago, the offerings totaled about $150,000 a year. Now they are over $3 million, allowing the church to give extravagantly to other churches and nonprofits in their community.

He and his wife, Brittany, live across the street from NYC's City Hall with their four daughters under the age of ten.
