"Karl Travis’s themes of ‘gratitude’ and ‘generosity’ crackle with profound examples that remind us in this often-dispirited time that, at its essence, the church is still alive and hopeful. At its very heart, this book beckons us to practice boldly an unafraid discipleship grounded by the keystone of consistent generosity and religious joy. This book is not simply a primer for stewardship committees. More profoundly, it is an invitation to explore the landscape of a deeper faith. Those who love this faith and those who wish to love it more will be blessed by the wisdom within these pages." —Ted Wardlaw, president emeritus, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary

"In this long-awaited labor of love, Karl Travis takes readers by the hand and shows them the very nature of God. Travis explores the generosity of God, generosity to God, and, finally, generosity with God, ultimately making the case for how giving from a posture of gratitude can transform the giver’s life. The journey described is a gift for all who desire to walk more closely with our generous and loving God." —Kristine Miller, partner and executive vice president, Horizons Stewardship

"Karl Travis is the perfect pastor to write a book on stewardship, because he genuinely treats all of life as a gift. And he does so because he wholeheartedly believes and trusts in God’s goodness, abundance, and graciousness. This book reframes generosity in a robustly theological way, mirroring the generous heart of God. Expect to be inspired and moved toward opening your hands and heart." —Danielle Shroyer, author, speaker, spiritual director

"Holy cow! If you think, as I thought, that you pretty much understand Christian stewardship and generosity, read this book. You will quickly feel embarrassed, and I did, over your prior conceits. And your grasp of God’s generosity will transform yours, which in turn will transform that of those you influence. Karl Travis and his book are gifts of that divine generosity for us all to treasure and share." —Jack Haberer, pastor, author, former editor and publisher of The Presbyterian Outlook

"Karl Travis sees with the eye of a perceptive pastor, writes with the verve of a joyous companion, and argues with the existential urgency of a dying man. This is a book bursting with faith, hope, and love, convincing us that God has given us everything we need; but it is also a manual of practical wisdom, contending that generosity is the best investment. Reading this book won’t just make you a more effective pastor; it will make you a more profound human being." —Samuel Wells, author and vicar, St. Martin-in-the-Fields
