When Women Give: The Adventures of a Generous Life

Kim King. IVP, $16 trade paper (178p) ISBN 978-0-8308-4511-8
King, attorney and manager for Exxon Mobil and chair of the board of directors for the Women Doing Well Initiative, explores financial wealth from a biblical perspective. Realizing that women today are in charge of more money than ever before, he wanted to understand how giving differs by gender. King began to get answers to her questions after attending a Celebration of Generosity seminar in 2007. Her first reaction to hearing how women around the country were dedicating themselves to philanthropy—not just generously, but extravagantly—was to think they were misguided. That reaction eventually changed as she began exploring biblical principles on giving. Examining deterrents to generosity, King cites fear of financial stress, a desire for more money, subconscious beliefs about privilege, and not making a financial plan. This practical text preaches God’s desire for individuals to meet one another’s needs and will convince many skeptics of the essential practice of giving big. (Aug.)
