Excerpt from Church Finance: A Study of Wrong Methods and the Remedy This book is sent forth with the expectation and hope that it will help to make successful the work of Christ's Church in these days of tremendous need and splendid opportunity. The conditions described or the methods advocated will t all fit any one case, but every church will doubtless find some material applicable to its problems and needs. Many friends have assisted in its compilation. I thank them all, and in particular the Rev. Frank W. Padelford, whose generous help contributed largely to whatever value there may be in this presentation of the giving life and the administration of the resultant money within the Church of Jesus Christ.
