Review 1 for Passing the Plate: Why American Christians Don't Give Away More Money
Date:November 9, 2008
Unfortunate indeed that Mormons are described here as "non-Christian religious believers". Yet the book recognizes that they stand alone among Christians in giving by far the highest percent of their income to charity. This fact speaks powerfully to the depth of their Christianity and desire to assist all of God's children not only with money but true Christian service inspired by the Savior of all mankind.
