“Profoundly respectful, impressively multidimensional, and refreshingly practical, Roehlkepartain and his colleagues examine youthful generosity from many theological perspectives within Christian and Jewish communities. We can only hope that adults will sit up and take notice. Growing Up Generous is not just the only book of its kind; it's the most provocative resource for ministry with young people that I've read in years.” —Kenda Creasy Dean
“Growing Up Generous is a positive proactive response that values the commandment to teach our children and gives us an important tool for saving our world. As a rabbi and a father, I am excited about the possibilities this book provides my students, my colleagues, my community, and most of all, my son. 'As Rabbi Assi said, Tzedakah (charity) is an important as all the other commandments put together' (Baba Batra 9a). Let us teach our children well.” —Dennis J. Eisner
