Reviews - What do customers think about Speaking of Stewardship?
A limited view of Christian stewardship Aug 17, 1999
23 `Model Sermons on Money and Possessions', nearly all by North American Presbyterians and of limited interest to anyone outside that continent. The Preface hints at an understanding of stewardship in terms of consumerism, haves and have-nots, refugee problems, disease, sanitation and starvation and one hoped for a new grasp of Christian stewardship with a wider agenda and touching environmentalist issues. But, alas, no! We are still predominantly in the North American church with its Stewardship Sunday and the crucial importance of renewing the annual pledge.
Alec Gilmore, University of Sussex
Great sermons on a useful subject Jul 31, 1998
I am part of the group of pastors whose sermons make up this book. Our group has been meeting annually for almost ten years to share exegetical papers on passages of scripture to be used in preaching during the coming year. We decided to share the wealth with the production of this book.
In addition to contributions from regular members of our group, sermons on stewardship by professors of homiletics Fred Craddock, Tom Long, Tom Troeger also are included.
I have read the galley proofs, and whether read for inspiration, preached "as is" or used as background for original sermons and lessons, I think readers will find significant help in this volume for thinking through issues related to stewardship.
