Abstract

Theologically-informed approaches to giving are critical to faith-based business curricula, yet few resources are available for use in personal financial planning or other courses to expose students to the practice of giving. Based on a recently developed model of giving (Brister, Litton, Lynn, & Tippens, 2016), we offer background content for discussion and an exercise to catalyze thinking and practice about lifetime giving from a Christian perspective.

Keywords: Christianity, Giving, Philanthropy, Altruism, Faith
