Awe and Expectation charts new territory in exploring the intersection of theology and stewardship. Theologians, ministers, and lay members of the church will find in this book material to fuel their imaginations as they rethink the role of stewardship in a post-Christendom church. Starting with sacrament and ending with word, Awe and Expectation surveys how a theology of stewardship illumines those core activities that define the church and how these same practices shape the contours of stewardship. It encourages Christians to understand the explosive potential of stewardship both within and beyond the walls of the church. This book will enable Christians to see the world in Awe and Expectation as Stewards of the Gospel.
