"Never tell God what to do, and never tell God's people how much to give. You might just end up underestimating the generosity of both." So says 'Peter' - the fictitious chairman in Scott Rodin's ground-breaking novelette, 'The Third Conversion'.
In this Lencioni-styled fable, Scott takes us on a journey with Walt, head of Resource Development at a Christian ministry, as he takes Carl, a new fundraising recruit, to meet some donors. Carl has plenty of experience raising money - in the hospital sector - he's a pro. But as the journey unfolds, it becomes clear that the whole game is different in the ministry world. Rich spiritual truths, as well as profound organizational principles, emerge as Carl comes to understand the difference that a God-centered mission means for the process of resourcing a Christian organization.
"Every ministry leader, board member, and development staff needs to read this novel. This book will change your heart, change your mind, and change your methods for how resources are mobilized for your ministry and God's work." --Brian Kluth, Bestselling author of 40 Day Journey to a Generous Life and Experience God as Your Provider
"The Third Conversion uniquely captures the true meaning of fundraising as a ministry to the donor as well as the significance of seeking joy in giving by the donor. Scott Rodin challenges the reader by "sowing" in their minds, hearts, and souls, the significance of stewardship, integrity, excellence, and the Lord's rightful place in the relationship between the development professional, the organization, and the donor. I could not help but pause and deeply reflect upon the author's story-based approach to emphasizing, with a rich theological perspective, the importance of properly stewarding those relationships God has entrusted us with. A powerful book." --John Clause, Vice Presidentâ€”Development, World Vision, Inc.
