One issue that makes stewardship a struggle for Christians is the culture of postmodernism. Dr. Albert Mohler wrote, “The postmodernists reject both the Christian and modernist approaches to the question of truth. According to postmodern theory, truth is not universal, is not objective or absolute and cannot be determined by a commonly accepted method. Instead, postmodernists believe truth is socially constructed, plural, and inaccessible to universal reason.” There are ways in which this thinking has impacted the church’s view of stewardship.
In a training session with children’s ministry leaders, a somewhat inclusive question came to us regarding infant baptism, election, covenant and evangelism.

This book could be used to prepare an officer in the church and to help us understand who we are in the Reformed faith. It is life-oriented because the author has a good grasp of our world and age and how the truths of the Reformed faith touch all areas of life. He does an outstanding job of showing the Reformed faith in its fullest and most glorious expression of biblical Christianity.
