Full Product Description

“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” Matthew 10:16

Shrewd has become a negative word in today’s language, and yet it is what Jesus told us to be like. Rick Lawrence explores the word, the parable of the shrewd manager in Luke 16 and what it means to be a Shrewd Christian.

Here are the books chapter headings:
1. Shrewd as Snakes, Innocent as Doves
2. Paths in the Grass
3. Dancing the Tango
4. The Way of Gamaliel & The Great Knock
5. The Shadow of the Snake
6. The Engine of the Dove
7. The Simple Path to Shrewd Living
8. The Elegant Levers: Humility, Blunt, Beauty, Pursuit, Laughter, Generosity

The levers in this book all come from scriptural observations of Jesus, how he interacted with hostile people like the Pharisees with humour, bluntness and generosity. Church has taught us to be nice, but Jesus tells us we need to be shrewd.

The author of dozens of books including ‘Sifted’, Rick Lawrence has been editor of Group magazine for over twenty years and the co-leader of the Simply Youth Minisrty Conference. Lawrence is a consultant, a conference speaker and a workshop leader. He and his family live in Colorado.
