This book is not a detailed step-by-step method for fund raising. It is a book designed to help set the attitudes of your heart in a place where you can begin to pursue your call from God as a faith based missionary. In essence she builds her teaching around four pillars of truth. Each of these pillars represents a specific principle which she effectively opens up with plenty of clear illustrations and scripture to reinforce the point. The book is written in a style that is easy to read and will impact your heart. The four pillars she gives are: Friend Raising, Generosity, Communication, Prayer with Promises.
After these she goes into practical issues, identifying and removing hindrances, showing it can work anywhere, and building your faith with stories of these teachings working. She also gives some tips on newsletters that are helpful.

Perhaps my favorite part of the book is the section where she gives a string of scriptures to help you overcome discouragement. It's placed at a point in the book where a missionary will naturally start to become discouraged unless they are boosted by God. She put a long list of scriptures there with some text so that you get the encouragement on the spot.

The author has a long experiential history on this subject and so she writes with a kind of authority that is far from ivory tower teachings. She is like a veteran soldier writing from the trenches to tell new soldiers what to do and how to survive in the trenches of the spiritual war that we are fighting...no more than survive...how to thrive. I think this is a GREAT book.

I am transitioning from the pastorate to a faith based mission. So I personally am struggling with many of the issues that she raises in this book. A friend who is coaching me recommended this book. I also picked up a few others on this subject. After perusing them all, this one drew me in. I'm now thinking it's so good that I need to have my whole family read it so we are all on the same page. I don't know if I will actually do that, but it gives you the feeling I have as I've read it.

This book really has impacted me the most in knocking out unhealthy attitudes about fund raising from my heart...convicting me and leading me to change rather quickly...laying a biblical foundation for fund raising (she focuses on friend raising), and providing practical tips for immediate use. (She talks about writing thank you notes immediately after receiving donations). However, some of her tips are antiquated electronically and need to be updated. It's just one or two little things though.

I think that this book should be at the front of the line for any missionary or campus minister who is raising support to do a good work for the Lord. If you have only a few bucks to spend on this topic (a reasonable guess I suppose), get this book. It probably be one that you keep nearby as you raise support for your work for God.

I enjoyed reading Friend Raising by Betty Barnett. The book compelled me to continually pray and search my feelings and motives. Jesus' correlation between our treasure and our heart definitely holds true for every person, including me. The topic of money and finances is never far from our thoughts and words. That being said, I learned many valuable concepts from this book. To list a few succinctly: 1) that people will sometimes expect spiritual help from missionaries, 2) that communication with supporters will require a sizable investment of time, 3) that generosity must exude from all I do, 4) that God's economy of giving/receiving is a far superior to the world's economy of buying/selling, and 5) that my weakness provides me opportunity to give God praise. Unquestionably, Betty's axiom of interdependence within the body of Christ holds true for me just as for any other person. I am weak. I need Christ. I need the body.

I so appreciate the wealth of information in this book. It's an easy read and gives great, practical advice. I especially appreciate the author's years of experience that she's writing from. Experience always gives worthy credibility. Thank you for your service in ministry!

This book is a knockoff from People Raising. I found it to be watered down and only slightly helpful. I would not recommend it as a way to raise support. Fundraising is much better. But I did get a few ideas from the book that I practice today. Such as focus on teh relationships. Don't get all excited to return home frmo a mission trip thinking everyone wants to hear about your expereince. She states many people want to do the talking and you need to learn how to rather listen to them..
