Stewardship and the Economy of God by John H. Reumann has been reprinted and is now available through Wipf and Stock Publishers. Originally published in 1992, Stewardship and the Economy of God traces the history of stewardship in biblical and historical contexts.
Author John Reumann, now deceased, was a professor of New Testament Studies at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. Reumann was intrigued by the concept of Christian stewardship from his student days through his educational career. As he notes in his introduction, the book represents "forty years of attention to the Greek word family that gives us 'steward' and 'stewardship' in the New Testament and subsequent Christian usage." Not only does the book explore past understandings of stewardship, but also gives theological insights into the role of stewardship in relation to the present and future church.
