Benjamin C. Maxson served as director of stewardship at the Seventh-day Adventist World Headquarters for over nine years. During those years Dr. Maxson contributed a regular column called “Concept” to the department’s resource journal, Dynamic Steward. This volume contains those articles, organized together in a meaningful way. An additional bonus is the great volume of topic-related quotations within the book.
The chapters are presented in the following five parts: 1) Connected by Grace 2) Connected by Choice 3) Connected by Resources 4) The People Connection and 5) The Ministry Connection. Along with many spiritual insights, Dr. Maxson has a way of sharing practical pointers with the reader. A must read for inspiration and motivation to live a life of identity and partnership with Jesus Christ, and an excellent place to find the Missing Connection: Where Life Meets Lordship.
