The idea of trial in the life of a believer as a stewardship responsibility is not something we hear much about. The author seeks to answer the following questions: How can the trials of a believer in Christ be treated as a stewardship? What if there is a lot more to the trial than we see on the surface? What if trials are in reality "disguised gifts" from the Father? What if trials are one of the avenues God uses to display His glory through the lives of His children? What if trials produce stewardship rewards for the believer who endures them faithfully?
This book takes dead aim at trials as a stewardship and argues that when trials are managed as God's property given to us, we find trials to be a blessing - not a blight Tom Wright has served as lead pastor of Memorial Baptist Church in Columbus Ohio for over forty years.
