What would have made I Like Giving better?
I know it is better to give than to receive, but this book did not really enlighten that concept much for me. It's orientation was too Jesus-focused for my tastes. But then I guess I should have noticed that it is published by Christian Audio.
Also, at one point the author states that he gives away 50% of his income every year. I was wondering if he is a clergyman, so his income is non-taxable to start, because he gives away everything to individuals insteadt of 501c charities, so he would get no tax deduction for this giving, making it quite an expensive proposition.
What do you think your next listen will be?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
He was OK
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from I Like Giving?
I would choose some other stories that are broader in scope ar involved other cultures outside the USA.
Any additional comments?
