Review of prvious edition.
Reading the Church Treasurer's Handbook was like a breadth of fresh air. There was at last a very clear and easy to follow reference book, and an excellent point of information for new and experienced Treasurers alike. In the ideal world a copy should be issued to each Treasurer, as the book does not just cover the basic responsibilities but also areas that are hardly used for example risk assessment, Trusts and legal requirements. The content of the book very carefully balanced the needs of the ministry of the Church with the financial requirements, for example the place of finance in the administration of the church, Romans 12.7. Reference was also made to some theology on budgets and expenses, areas which PCCs are never keen to develop further but should know about, Matthew 6.24 - 34. My only concern on the whole book was reference was made on numerous occasions to 2005, and I feel that the information may go out of date very quickly, so Treasurers will need to be aware changes can happen. Finally I would commend the book to any one who is involved or is seriously thinking of taking on Church finances. How did we manage before!

The law relating to charities differs between countries within the United Kingdom. In this regard, would this book be suitable for a treasurer of a charity registered in Scotland?
Yes, this edition of The Church Treasurer's Handbook would indeed be suitable for Scottish purposes; it does cover the law as administered in England and Wales, but with supplemental notes to detail the differences applicable in Scotland and Ireland.
