AVAILABLE MAY 2015 PROVISION AND WEALTH The Bible and Your Work Study Series BY THEOLOGY OF WORK PROJECT

64-120 pages • 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches

God intends for everyone to thrive economically. He wants us to find provision (supply of what we need) for our daily life. He also desires for us to enjoy the abundance (wealth) of his generosity. However, we live and work in a world where some live extravagantly and have enormous wealth, while many others struggle to scratch out a living, going without even the basic necessities. Questions and concerns about God’s role in our provision and wealth weigh heavily on almost every Christian’s mind—whether we are rich or poor, an employee or employer, a student, parent, or retiree, a homeowner, tenant, or homeless person. Fortunately, this concern for the economic sphere of our lives is matched by the priority it is given in Scripture. Provision and wealth are far from peripheral issues in the Bible and feature prominently through both Old and New Testaments.

Paperback • 978-1-61970-662-0 • Retail $9.95

In this study, we will explore what God’s word has to say about:

Ebook

• God’s original intentions for our economic well-being • The effects of the Great Rebellion on our capacity to flourish • God’s response in redeeming the economic sphere and our part in this • How we should treat any wealth we possess • What we can reasonably expect from God in regard to our provision

“It was not for her to criticize the ways of Almighty God; if He liked to go to all that trouble over the snowflakes, millions and millions of them, their intricate patterns too small to be seen by human eyes, and melting as soon as made, that was His affair and not hers. All she could do about it was to catch in her window, and save from entire waste, as much of the squandered beauty as she could.” —Elizabeth Goudge, The Rosemary Tree

In the raw aftermath of World War II, this is the story of the Wentworth family. It is the story of John Wentworth—vicar of a church in Devon, England—and his wife Daphne, who feels trapped in the vicarage. While John’s great aunt lives in the dilapidated family manor house, their three daughters attend a dysfunctional school, captive among embattled staff and their headmistress. It is only Harriet, John’s aging former nanny, who holds the family together through her love and empathy. But when Michael Stone returns to town, recently released from prison and now searching for his former love, Daphne, he is a disruption to the lives of all—including his own—helping to free them from their prisons, both physical and metaphorical. Elizabeth Goudge (1900–1984) was a British novelist born into the home of an Anglican priest and theologian. She wrote children’s books as well as novels—her Green Dolphin Street was made into a 1947 Academy-Award winning film starring Lana Turner, Van Heflin, and Donna Reed. In style and themes she parallels English writers such as the creator of the Miss Read series, as well mirroring the spiritual depth found in George MacDonald’s Victorian novels. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, she won the Carnegie Award in 1947 for The Little White Horse, which is J. K. Rowling’s favorite children’s book.
