He addresses the Lord’s motive in giving, excuses for not giving, and covetousness. One chapter asks the question What is your Conception of Money?
Thirteen chapters with detailed questions. Scripture text, thought for today, and purpose for the lesson lead into the meat of the chapter. Good for class study, but likely too much material to cover one lesson per week.
