First Fruits: Stewardship Thoughts and Stories from Around the World
First Fruits: Stewardship Thoughts and Stories from Around the World

"Honor the Lord with your substance and with the first fruits of all your produce" says Proverbs 3:9, and this emphasis on joyously giving the Lord of our first fruits is the theme of this inspirational piece. True Christian stewardship should be motivated by gratitude and love for God who has done so much for us, says retired missionary Dr. Paul R. Lindholm. This thesis of love-bound rather than duty-bound stewardship which comes from the author's long missionary career in the Orient has made Dr. Lindholm's contributions sought after from church leaders around the world. By stressing the joy that comes to those who are faithful and unwavering stewards, Dr. Lindholm has encouraged myriads of people to be generous in all that they undertake and he has been invited to give lectures around the world on stewardship education. His stories are replete with the joy that comes to those who are faithful and unwavering stewards. Inspirational reading for all, this book can be especially helpful for pastors in preparing sermons, for Sunday school teachers in their training programs and for all church members as they consider the stewardship responsibilities. Trade paperback, 128 pp., with bibliography; also available in library hardcover for $18.95.

Benjamin Weir, professor of evangelism and mission at San Francisco Theological Seminary comments, "This handy book is chock-full of thoughts for all who would dig deeper into the meaning of commitment to God. Here is the collected wisdom of one who has taught and lived stewardship on four continents with deep satisfaction and overflowing gladness."  Bob Abrams of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Global Mission department says, "God loves a cheerful giver. The giver who responds in thanksgiving to God is a theme Paul Lindholm has shared with thousands. Here are profound truths from one who has given cheerfully and thoughtfully to many of us through the years." Pastor Dean K. Thompson adds, "Paul Lindholm offers us a stewardship feast. Steeped in the rich tradition of world Christianity, his book is a valuable resource for the faith community. God gives; we give. For Lindholm this is life's most basic rhythm. Because God is the greatest giver of all, our generosity glorifies God."

Paul R. Lindholm, D.D., is a distinguished authority on stewardship, widely recognized for the "imagination, thoroughness and spiritual content" he brings to this topic. He served as a missionary in China, India and the Philippines for 39 years (including living hidden in the Philippine highlands all during World War II) and has traveled the world giving seminars on stewardship education.
