    A new study shows that people of faith in America have a huge heart in terms of giving to Third World countries -- and the study cites a surprising dollar figure.



    Carol Adelman of the Hudson Institute cites the information in a study done with Notre Dame University. "We didn't realize it would be as large as it was, and we came out with a number of $8.8 billion worth of goods and services that churches are giving overseas to developing countries," she points out.

    In addition, studies have shown that liberals are less generous than conservatives.

    And that applies to Christians as well.

    Conservative Christians are far more likely to be tithers and sacrificial givers.
