The Study Book is focused on Biblical teaching and Theology of Stewardship, the underlying vision for the church and personal response to the Gospel. It is not a Stewardship programme in itself. It can be used in preparation for or in parallel to a practical stewardship.
a) to help people think through what it means to be a disciple in the correct use of time, effort and possessions - the fundamental theology of stewardship and prime theme b) to help local churches initiate a process to develop a shared vision, owned by its members, about what its mission is and what it costs to fulfil that mission - the second theme c) to suggest practical measures that need to put in place to facilitate people providing the required resources - an introduction (see references and links)
