    Is Giving Good For You with John Cortines (EP030)

    Is Giving Good For You with John Cortines (EP030)

    Co-author of the book God & Money, John Cortines was earning six figures as a petroleum engineer for a major oil company in Louisiana. As a lifelong Christian, John tithed regularly. But he didn’t give much thought to the intersection of faith and money until 2014 when, in the rather unlikely setting of Harvard Business School, he began a searching exploration of these spiritual questions. John believes that God calls Christians to a far more radical task than building wealth. He calls them to give abundantly, and to lay aside their tendencies to become spenders or savers.

Really Great Advice

Been listening from day 1. Chris's telling it how it is and not hiding the lows is great. The guests are really a blessing too to hear. Loved the "Lipstick on a Pig" approach by Matt Chewning, which is what we've had to do in a revitalization of a 177 year old church building. Thanks Chris and God Bless
