Here is annotated Bibliography of Resources on Stewardship that I used in preparing my talks for my Ugandan Mission Trip in March of 2003.
Following are Links and Resources on Christian Micro-enterprise Development.
- Stewards in the Kingdom, A Theology of Life in All Its Fullness. R. Scott Rodin, InterVarsity Press, Downers Grove, Illinois
A solid effort to lay a theological foundation for Stewardship - This is an excellent book!
A book that tries to restore the metaphor of the "Steward" to its place in the life of the church
This book is a very solid and detailed study on wealth in the Bible. Highly recommended if you want God's perspective.
My knowledge of this book was limited to an on line summary of a couple of its
chapters. It is said to be a thesis level study on the subject.
This book seeks to answer the very popular and influencal Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger. by Ron Sider -which avocated a simpler life style, errs greviously on what the Bible teaches, with strong socialist tendencies. Chilton sets forth clearly the "Protestant Work Ethic" as taught in the Bible.
I haven't read these yet, but they look like promising developments of the Biblical material.
Can social involvement and spirituality come together? The real question, according to George Grant, is whether they can ever be separated. Justice without mercy, or mercy without justice are biblically impossible.
