A Pastor's Perspective on the Financing of American Religion

Abstract: 
Richard R. Crocker pinpoints key lessons that religious leaders can learn from the literature on the financing of American religion. Among these are the character of the so-called financial “crisis,” the impact of denominational cultures on giving, practices that make a difference, questions of pastoral competence and training in financial matters especially in a new “culture of philanthropy” as well as what pastors might do about the situation.
