"We visited our daughter in Texas last October, and took along What the Bible Actually Says about Money (31 Meditations). We read chapters at dinner time, and it prompted some good discussion. When I finished one chapter, my granddaughter(11 years old) actually clapped! We visited them again this month and they had a copy in their kitchen. On DAY 27, I sensed God's admonition for my giving. I admitted that there is room in my heart to pursue recognition from others and try to impress others by my giving. This chapter helped me to seek the Father and pursue heavenly reward first. Also, the reading for each day is short but deep. Taking a single topic a day, it is easy to share what I learned with others, for me my wife! --Japan believer
“Appreciate your investment in this book. It’s biblically grounded, application oriented and short enough for busy younger people (30’s) to say, ‘Okay, I’ll read it.’” --Pastor of a growing church in Iowa
"I'm writing to thank you so much for the precious gift of the book "What the Bible actually Says About Money" which was given to me yesterday in our Navigator's MPD meeting in Jos, Nigeria. Thank God for your life and how the Lord has opened the scriptures to you in such a clear but accurate manner. This book is timely and relevant for my life and ministry. I've had difficulty interpreting some of these profound truths I discovered in this book, but thank you for coming through for me..." -Malachi, Master of Divinity Student in Nigeria
"I met “M” last at the Biblical Funding Training school in Jos [Nigeria] last week. After reading some of the chapters of What the Bible Actually Says about Money,he could not stop raving about it. He is a passionate seminary student who is concerned about the correct teaching of the Gord of God in churches across Africa." -Emeka (Lagos Gospel Worker)
A recent note from a Cameroon mission leader got our attention. In Cameroon there is little teaching about handling money. What is taught comes mainly from the pulpits and it is “Tithe, tithe, tithe!” This veteran mission leader simply said: "I love this book."
“Great insights, Scott. I've learned so many administrative, management, leadership, and people skills through my journey in support raising from your teaching, including What the Bible Actually Says about Money. [...] Those include: 1) It's okay to say "No" when others ask for a favor--like driving them to the airport! 2) I need to plan time for my own growth and development--reading books, listening to podcasts, etc. 3) Discipline myself to keep good notes on donors. Keep good records and hold onto them.” -Veteran Gospel Leader in Texas
