“How to Ignite Your Congregation: Generous Giving,” the most recent book, shapes all the work of Long Looking, engaging biblical stories to stimulate deeper personal faith, church enthusiasm, and financial planning. Recognized leaders endorsing this book include William Enright, Director, The Lake Institute, Center on Philanthropy, Indianapolis; and Anthony Robinson, prominent church consultant working in the U.S. and Canada.
