At Ease: Discussing Money and Values in Small Groups

by John M. Ronsvalle, Sylvia Ronsvalle, and others. The Alban Institute, 1998.

This book by faith and money experts John and Sylvia Ronsvalle with U. Milo Kaufmann presents a method for making people comfortable discussing the difficult issues of linking money with values. Based on congregational small-group discussions that create support and trust, the method helps individuals identify their fears and worries, as well as their attitudes on stewardship and support of the church. A series of questions leads participants by steps to new and increasingly probing conversations about these issues.
