Radical Generosity for the Real World

Generosity is a way of living, not simply an act of giving.

a real-world experiment in generosity

In September 2014 LaSalle Street Church handed out $500 checks to its congregants, with the instruction to do God’s work in the world. This was a real-world experiment in generosity.

Love Let Go: Radical Generosity for the Real World is the story of these real people experiencing real freedom. And repeatedly that freedom began with small hesitant steps of generosity that became a way of life.

While it is the story of one church, it is the larger story of generosity and its potential when unleashed by you, me, and everyone else inhabiting this divinely and beautifully created planet. It is the story of loving and letting go.

On Our Minds

“Renewed hope in the human spirit”

From the recent review of Love Let Go in the Green Bay Press Gazette, “Although the focus of the book is on the church and decisions made by the congregants, this title does dive into the science of generosity and ends up with more depth than expected. Readers will be left with a renewed hope in the human spirit and thoughtfully questioning what they would do if they encountered a similar situation.”
