Product Description

How do our congregations grow and become healthy communities in the face of daunting cultural challenges inside and outside the Episcopal Church? A book series that has been designed to invigorate ministry and assure healthy congregations focused on mission offers concrete answers. Transformations: The Episcopal Church of the 21st Century provides hands-on tools to help clergy and lay leaders chart their future course.

For most Episcopalians stewardship is synonymous with pledge drives, budgest, and capital campaigns, but the Bible is clear that wants more thasn our tithes and offerings. Looking to its scriptural roots in 1 Chronicles, Luke, Acts, and the Letters of Paul, as as St. Francis' "third way," Transforming Stewardship offers a vision of holistic stewardship that is integral to the church's evangelism, outreach, Scripture study, and ministry to the newcomer. It involves not strong arm tactics, but a willingness to risk changing existing structures and ideas in order to enrich the faith community and strengthen connections to the neighboring world.

Publisher's Description

At once a “travel guide” and a vision for the future, this series is good news for the Episcopal Church at a time of fast and furious demographic and social change. It analyzes the present plight of the church and sketches a positive way forward, sprouting from the seeds of change—those transformative practices already at work renewing the church. What church models can help point us toward transformation? What are the essential tools? What will give us strength, direction, and purpose to the journey?

Each volume of the series will:

  • Explain why a changed vision is essential
  • Give robust theological and biblical foundations
  • Offer a guide to best practices and positive trends in churches large and small
  • Describe the necessary tools for change
  • Imagine how transformation will look

For most Episcopalians, stewardship is synonymous with pledge drives, budgets, and capital campaigns, but the Bible is clear that God wants more than our tithes and offerings. Looking to its scriptural roots in 1 Chronicles, Luke-Acts, and the letters of Paul, as well as St. Francis’ “third way,” Robertson offers a vision of holistic stewardship for the whole church, holistic because it can’t be separated from evangelism, outreach, scripture study, and ministry to the newcomer. It does not involve strong-arm tactics, only a willingness to risk changing existing structures and ideas in order to enrich the faith community and strengthen connections to the neighboring world.

Transforming Stewardship delivers both good and bad news about Episcopalians and stewardship. Robertson provides essential models and spiritual practices in order to transform the church’s outmoded attitudes toward stewardship and wealth into a broader context of faith.
