Written for an Episcopal Church audience, this thorough guide to stewardship as it’s been practiced has relevance for other denominations as well, particularly as it considers what the future might hold. By analyzing the strengths and shortcomings of traditional stewardship patterns, the author is then able to propose a way forward, into a new vision of transformation, joining the church with God’s movement in the world. Robertson suggests a route, including ways that leaders can be strategic in integrating stewardship in the life of the congregation, as well as concrete steps to ensure that the vision for stewardship is kept visible. Stories from churches that have experienced a transformation related to generosity and stewardship are highlighted, so that different models of success can serve as examples and encouragement for the journey. With an included discussion guide, this book can easily be used in a small group or committee setting.
