Phillippe emphasizes both the theological mandate and the biblical imperative for supporting God's mission and ministry worldwide, and he does not mince words about the connection between mission and money. He urges pastors not to overestimate the sensitivity of their congregations on the subject - and he adds, "for heaven's sake, be cheerful about it!"
