    Far more than money...

    In Christian circles, ‘generosity’ is often code for giving money. But generosity is about far more than money. God is lavishly generous towards us in a thousand ways, most of all in the grace of the gospel. God’s powerful generosity through the gospel not only saves us but also sets us free to live a new, big-hearted life—a life no longer turned inwards on ourselves but that flows out to others with an open, generous hand. 

    Watch, learn and grow together...

    The Generosity Project is a set of resources to help you discover and live this new, generous life. Through this book and its free online videos, you’ll work with a small group of other Christians to engage with what the Bible says about generosity, read or watch input from leading pastor-teachers, and work out what it all means in practice in your life.
