Within this book, we will walk through seven stories of giving from the Old Testament. Each story contains archetypal givers and antithetical givers—characters who faithfully worship God through expressions of generosity, and characters who deny God’s blueprint for giving through idolatry and unbelief. However, we will find that God himself is the central character and the ultimate giver in each story. I want to make three central claims about giving in this book. 1) Giving is worship; 2) giving expresses faith; and 3) giving fosters community. Within each section we will see how giving is central to God’s purposes and plans for his people.

            My hope is that this book will allow you to explore your own patterns of giving—individually and as a member of a church or family. Because “God loves a cheerful giver,” I also pray this book would engender heart-level transformation in you as you grapple with the Old Testament’s robust theology of giving. May the Lord who gives us life, who gives us our every breath, who grants us the blessing of children, gives us trials to shape our hearts, who gave His Son that we might believe and have eternal life, teach us to reflect his glory through our giving.

Editorial Reviews

Our attitude for giving should always be rooted in the gift of redemption Jesus Christ personally gives each of us. This book does a wonderful job reminding the reader of this incredible biblical truth as revealed in the Old Testament. May all who read it be inspired to give from a heartfelt expression of gratitude for our Wonderful Savior!Dr. Johnathan W. GrayPresident/CEO, Georgia Baptist FoundationKingdom building is what drives WaterStone and I am honored to support their mission. This book is a tremendous asset in helping Christian families to think beyond the results of their giving, and understand more clearly and deeply the why of their giving.The message that giving expresses faith is one that can dramatically impact how financial advisors, pastors, and nonprofit leaders can serve the Lord as good and faithful stewards of the relationships God has entrusted to them. Every Christian can add generosity, charity, and giving to the list of the spiritual lessons we hope to pass on to our children and grandchildren. God's Givers should be widely distributed and carefully read.God's Givers is a fantastic tool to present the biblical message that the way we think about our wealth begins with the truths revealed in the Bible. What better place to find a source of inspiration for giving than the Bible. Will has reached deep into the Old Testament to share the biblical foundations of giving and the faith that moves the people of God to generosity.Eric Koeplin Financial Advisor, Denver, COA gifted storyteller, Will Stevens shares with us seven inspirational stories of giving demonstrated by our biblical forefathers including David, Noah, and others. Christian stewardship impacts the steward first (and often the most) but it also makes a difference in the community of believers and the larger community of mankind. These Old Testament examples of devotion, sacrifice, and giving will provide needed encouragement and instruction to all who partake of the wisdom that can be found. Thank you, Will, for your dedicated efforts to bring this work to publication.Bob Korljan CPA, Pastor, and Tax AdviserLay people, business people, church leaders, community leaders, entrepreneurs, those serving inside and outside of ministry...quite simply, everyone who is aware of their blessings no matter how large or how small, and those aware of God's part in the phenomenon we all call "life" will want to read this book. It will change your heart, your life, your legacy and most importantly, it will change YOU, all for the better.Richard A. Lavinski CPA, Managing Partner, East 57th Street Partners & Serial EntrepreneurEvery Christian business leader needs to continually be challenged on how they are using business and finances for Kingdom gain. This book has once again caused me to step back from my selfish motives, check my ego, and examine how to keep Christ as my #1 priority in business, finances, and life.Paul Ten HakenPresident, Click RainGood work is God's work, and in the world of estate and business planning, it's helpful to remember why we do what we do and why giving is such an important aspect of building a legacy. God always calls us to the higher harder thing and he always delivers even though it may not seem like it at the time. You cannot "outgive" the Ultimate Giver and you, your family and your business will be blessed as you stand on and implement the biblical giving principles illustrated in God's Givers. It is a great reminder that His Word is true, back then, now and forever.Carolyn A. Thompson Attorney at Law and Founder of Thompson Law, PC
