Book Description:

Once you see your gifts from God’s perspective, your giving will never be the same.

When she was a toddler, Jeff Anderson’s daughter opened his eyes to how delighted God is with our gifts. She brought him a plastic donut from her play kitchen, and he was surprised by the intensity of his reaction. His delight in receiving this simple gift—and his daughter’s joy in giving it—led him to dig deeper. Anderson would not rest until he found the scriptural connection between our gifts and God’s heart.

Plastic Donuts removes the awkwardness and uncertainty that often accompany discussions about giving. Now you can think differently-and biblically-about what and how you give.

Your gifts can capture God’s attention and connect you more intimately with His heart. Plastic Donuts brings everyone—leaders and followers, teachers and learners—onto the same page.



The author has great insight on the issue of giving…not just monetarily but gifts from our heart to God’s heart.  He helps you to examine yourself to see why you are giving and how we view it.  He put the issue of tithing in a different perspective, which hit home with me.  When we give it not only pleases God, it helps us to grow in our relationship with Him.  The book is small and reads well, so you will get through it quickly.  But the best part is the life-changing affects it will have on you.  I highly recommend it.
