Robert Wood Lynn on Christian Giving in America

Robert Wood Lynn seeks to expand the conversation about the issue of faith and money by considering why people give in historical and theological contexts. Using the metaphor of a "triptych," a picture in three compartments side by side, Lynn portrays the motivation behind three successive eras in American Christian giving — the colonial period moved by the notion of "charity," the 19th century informed by the idea of "systematic benevolence" and more recent times animated by the concept of "stewardship."
