I just completed Kirk Nowery’s book, The Stewardship of Life. Nowery served as President of INJOY Stewardship Services. Prior to his role at INJOY, he served for 18 years as Senior Pastor of one of the nation’s largest congregations in Miami, Flordia. In addition to his many roles, he was Chaplain of the famed Miami Dolphins footall team from 1983 to 1995.
In the book, Nowery explores the need for Christians to be good stewards of all the resources God gives to them. Naturally, he talks about finances, but that is not the main focus of the book. He talks about stewardship in the areas of vision, influence, commitment, time, and opportunity. The final chapter is called The Stewardship of You.
I recommend the book to anyone wanting to examine the area of stewardship. One bonus for me as a pastor was the fact that I gleaned several sermon ideas for future stewardship-related sermon series.
This is book 8 of 52 of my quest to read 52 books this year. For more information on this quest please see One Book Per Week = 52 or this series of posts.
