Too often, when someone hears the word "stewardship" at church, they immediately grab their wallets and think, "Here it comes. The church is after my money again!" That's a tragic misunderstanding of the biblical principles of stewardship. A steward is just a manager of God's resources! In Generous Life Journey, Gunnar Johnson draws on years of research and hands-on ministry to unpack true, biblical stewardship. What you learn just might change your life!



If you're thinking this is just another book about tithing, let me assure you—what God has given Gunnar Johnson to share with those who desire more in their lives and in their churches is greater than anything you've probably been given before. With practical applications, valuable tips, godly wisdom and insight, Gunnar has written a book that encompasses all aspects of your life and helps you discover what you're supposed to be doing and all God has for you. Gunnar says life with God is an adventure and his encouragement to us is: "Let the adventure begin!"
