Revolution, by Barna, p. 33. Regarding resource investment:
- Churched Christians give away an average of about 3% of their income in a typical year - and feel pleased at their "sacrificial" generosity.
- Fewer than one out of every ten churched Christians donates at least 10% of their income to churches and other nonprofit organizations. (More than 1/3 claim to do so.)
- When asked to explain their understanding of biblical stewardship, less than one out of every twenty includes resources such as time, relationships, ideas, or skills in their assessment.
- Most believers are unable to identify anything specific they have ever donated money to that they would describe as producing life-changing outcomes.
