Overview

This pioneering volume endeavors to develop an Orthodox Christian model of stewardship by drawing on scriptural, patristic, historical, dogmatic, and liturgical foundations. Renowned contributing authors explore the links between wealth and poverty--from methods of handling money in the pre-Nicene Church to twentieth-century American patters of fundraising. Although it addresses moral and social themes related to money management, almsgiving, and acts of mercy, this volume also reminds us to measure stewardship in terms of self-giving, not merely contributions of wealth but also offering our very lives to Christ our Lord. Philanthropia, ultimately, is proven by cheerful giving, in a spirit of love, the source of which is in knowing the Almighty God.
