Scripture is clear about giving: Christians should tithe, giving 10 percent of their income to the church. This new book aims to provide insight into another aspect of giving and generosity that’s not so clear – stewardship and its role in daily life. Author John Frank passionately believes proper, faithful stewardship is the key to a holistic approach to life for both individuals and organizations.
“Stewardship as a Lifestyle: Seeking to Live as a Steward and Disciple” features chapters on understanding stewardship as a disciple and not just as a fundraising strategy. Forging a relationship with God is paramount, Frank writes, before someone can become what he calls a “transformed steward” who seeks to be generous with his time, money and in relationships. Disciples of Jesus Christ should observe and follow his lifestyle of generosity, Frank urges. Later chapters focus on applying stewardship to a lifestyle through its effect on time, talent, treasure, relationships, priorities and the world. Questions for reflection follow each description of an aspect of stewardship and daily living. An extensive bibliography rounds out this valuable resource on the discipline of stewardship. As Frank writes, “A life of total stewardship becomes a guidebook for the disciple.”
Author John Frank, CFRE, is a long-time educator and speaker whose ministry spans 24 countries, including evangelist work behind the Iron Curtain and teaching stewardship in Third World countries. He has consulted with small groups up to those with budgets of $100 million. Frank, who has written many articles on stewardship, leadership and development, also published the book “The Ministry of Development” and “The Monthly Partner.” Frank founded the Stewardship Summit, designed to bring together those interested in stewardship through research, writing, teaching and learning.
