Barnabas - A Model for Holistic Stewardship
Author/Editor: Rev. Canon C.K. Robertson, PhD
“It is safe to say that without Barnabas,” writes Chuck Robertson, “we would never have known the Apostle Paul.” While often a forgotten hero, “Joseph, the Levite from Cyprus, forever remembered by the name given to him by the apostles, Barnabas (Acts 4:36), calls for our attention.”
Whether you want to get serious about evangelism or broaden the understanding of stewardship beyond the annual pledge drive in your congregation, you’ll want to know what is revealed in this booklet. The life of Barnabas offers a model for holistic stewardship, holistic because Barnabas’ story doesn’t end with his generous offering of the proceeds from the sale of his land. Barnabas also models gracious welcoming of the stranger, seeking out of more workers, searching for God’s direction, undertaking a supporting role, challenging the status quo, and erring on the side of mercy.
