Budgeting for a Healthy Church: Aligning Finances with Biblical Priorities for Ministry
Jamie Dunlop (Zondervan, 2019) 169 pp.
While focused on the local church, Dunlop’s book will be a great help to all who work with budgets and money. Dunlop, associate pastor at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC and former businessman, has written a practical book that helps us consider what budgets say about our priorities and values. He wants to broaden our understanding of budgets and finances and show how we can use them to equip people to be better stewards. He works from Scripture to help us understand principles for supporting staff, funding programs, and investing in missions and outreach. There are worksheets and checklists to help one apply the principles learned. Every missionary who works with budgets and finances will find wise guidance here. Reviewer rating is 5 of 5 stars ★★★★★
