Product Description

When Jesus compared Christians to stewards in his parables, he was painting a very specific picture of how believers are meant to behave---as caretakers, neighbors, and responsible servants of God. Thought-provoking study questions reinforce this exhortation to good stewardship. Learn to use your resources wisely for God, his creation, and his neediest children. 192 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

Publisher's Description

This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable.

Taking the images of "journey" and "steward" as metaphors for the Christian's life, and using parables of Jesus found in Matthew and Luke, Ronald Vallet helps focus a truly biblical understanding of the term steward and the role of believers as earthly caretakers, neighbors, and responsible servants of God.

Written to inform and encourage pastors and laypersons who seek to explore new dimensions in their Christian journey, Vallet's inspirational study teaches Christians how to gain a sense of purpose, how to properly use their resources, talents, and money, and how to reach out with compassion for the welfare of others and for the planet.

This revised and enlarged edition includes important new discussions in the areas of faith and money and environmental issues. M. Douglas Meeks has written the foreword, and a new epilogue by Vallet explores the mission funding crisis of the church in North America, the changing views on both the church and its mission, and the important role played by theological education. Thought-provoking questions and suggestions for further reflection follow each chapter, and a study guide outlines ways to adapt this volume to adult and youth church and school classes, planning groups, conferences, and small-group settings.
