Getting Sent; A Relational Approach to Support Raising (USED)

$3.99
More Info

Most of us would rather have a root canal than ask for money.
Raising support is one of the most difficult challenges facing Christians in ministry. Fears of rejection, concerns about biblical validity, feelings of not being deserving, anxiety about limited resources can all block us from obtaining the means to fulfill our calling.
This book both affirms that God uses the Christian community to send us into ministry and demystifies the process. This down-to-earth handbook

  • offers a clear, biblical perspective
  • gives step-by-step instructions on how to assemble the tools unique to each person's support-raising task
  • helps you know what range of gift to ask of a potential donor
  • outlines the how-tos of holding a home promotional event
  • tells the four predictors of church support
  • is aware of the diverse ethnic contexts of today's new mission candidates
  • includes a chapter by a woman for women on their unique challenges in support raising
  • shows how to build a base in a strong church when you don't have one
  • explains exactly why people do and don't give

  • The relational strategy in this book has proven valuable for those who serve Christ on campus, in the city or in other special ministries at home or abroad. It is not necessarily the quickest approach to raising money, but it is the most lasting and fulfilling for those who give and receive.

    A groundbreaking look at why our interactions with others hold the key to success, from the bestselling author of Think Again and Originals

    For generations, we have focused on the individual drivers of success: passion, hard work, talent, and luck. But in today's dramatically reconfigured world, success is increasingly dependent on how we interact with others. In Give and Take, Adam Grant, an award-winning researcher and Wharton's highest-rated professor, examines the surprising forces that shape why some people rise to the top of the success ladder while others sink to the bottom. Praised by social scientists, business theorists, and corporate leaders, Give and Take opens up an approach to work, interactions, and productivity that is nothing short of revolutionary.

    In October 2006, Nicholas Stern, one of the greatest economists and public intellectuals of our day, made headlines around the world with his report, which reviewed the costs and benefits of dealing with global warming. The world's community has learned that it must act to mitigate global climate change, but until the Stern Review, no one knew how much it would cost, and how to do it.

    Now, Stern has transformed his report into a powerful narrative book for general readers. The Global Deal evaluates the economic future, and the essential steps we must take to protect growth and reduce poverty while managing climate change.

    The future Stern outlines is optimistic and pragmatic; he believes we have the capacity and creativity to change. But we need the will to inspire our political leaders to drive a new global strategy.

    Global Ethics: An Introduction (USED)

    Global Ethics: An Introduction (USED)

    $15.00
    More Info

    Global ethics addresses some of the most pressing ethical concerns today, including rogue states, torture, scarce resources, poverty, migration, consumption, global trade, medical tourism, and humanitarian intervention. It is both topical and important. How we resolve (or fail to resolve) the dilemmas of global ethics shapes how we understand ourselves, our relationships with each other and the social and political frameworks of governance now and into the future. This is seen most clearly in the case of climate change, where our actions now determine the environment our grandchildren will inherit, but it is also the case in other areas as our decisions about what it is permissible for humans beings to do to each other determines the type of beings we are. This book, suitable for course use, introduces students to the theory and practice of global ethics, ranging over issues in global governance and citizenship, poverty and development, war and terrorism, bioethics, environmental and climate ethics and gender justice.

    More Info

    Many nonprofits are reluctant to develop a policies manual, believing that it takes far too much time, effort, and expertise. But the lack of responsible policies and governance can actually end up costing an organization much more in the long run -- both in reputation and in resources.

    Good Governance for Nonprofits is a succint but thorough guide that will help organizations develop a board that is legally and ethically responsible and effective in advancing their needs. The authors offer a clear process for creating a policies manual to help boards apply proven standards of governance or "attributes of excellence." Now even with limited resources, nonprofit leaders will learn how to:

    * eliminate redundant or outdated policies

    * add new policies more effectively

    * clearly guide the CEO and evaluate his or her performance

    * ensure compliance with relevant legislation and regulations

    * understand why certain policies should be included

    * adapt the authors' templates to their specific needs.

    According to one of America's boldest contrarians, Harry Dent, an exciting new era of expanding prosperity is just around the corner. Instead of endorsing today's conventional wisdom that the current recession will completely color the economic picture of the '90s, Dent, an outstanding trend spotter, predicts the greatest boom in the history of America will soon be upon us and he provides the tools to capitalize on the strategies and techniques he has successfully used with leading-edge companies around the world. Visionary and provocative, Dent asserts that the 1990s and the early years of the 21st century will be remembered for their unprecedented boom years rather than their early recessionary period. He gives a specific timetable for the economic trends he predicts, calling highs and lows in interest rates, inflation, and the stock market. In his daring and broadsweeping analysis, Dent documents the impact the waves of maturing baby boomers will have on all aspects of American life. With their vast spending power, innovative thinking, and creation of a new customized economy, the boomers' extraordinary numbers will create the earliest economic and business changes in North America. As it shifts into a high-gear expansion, the United States with its dominant numbers of baby boomers will regain its leadership position in world markets. Harry Dent forgoes the traditional tools of economic forecasting - government managed interest rates, imports and exports, the deficit, unemployment statistics, the money supply - and has instead created simple, reliable tools that anybody can use. You will be able to learn for yourself what will be happening in the economy and how to use the results tomake informed decisions in your business, your work, and your personal investments. Create your own economic program for adapting to boom times as you learn what to do about preferred portfolios, specific types of stocks to invest in; growth markets of the 1990s, major social an
