Publishers Description The question this book poses is key to understanding and practicing stewardship as a way of life. Author Dan Conway believes that when all is said and done we own nothing because we are possessed wholly and completely by "a good and gracious God." Life is a gift to be cherished, shared, and given back to God with increase. Stewardship is one of the chief characteristics of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. This basic insight, among others, was essential to the stewardship message of Archbishop Thomas Murphy, to whom this book is dedicated. To clarify and exemplify his message, Conway offers insightful reflections, moving stories, and practical reflection questions for individual and group use.

Stewardshp Jan 9, 2007
Excellent presentation that gives anyone a basic understanding of stewardship as a way of life. Great resource for stewardship committees or parish councils.
Great Stewardship Introduction Nov 11, 2006
This is a great introduction to stewardship as a way of life. The followon book, "Stewardship in America A countercultural Way of Life", goes another level deeper. Only disappointment is that it did not come with the DVD of archbishop's Murphy's talk that other people's books had.
