It’s the one Bible story Christians won’t hear in church.
It doesn’t make sense: Jesus tells his disciples to take a lesson from Satan himself. In fact, he implies, if you are going to be any good for the Kingdom of God, you’ve got to be as shrewd as Satan-yet as innocent as the Holy Spirit. A scandalous idea? Yes. Essential to the Christian life? Definitely.
Drawing on Jesus’s parable of the shrewd manager in Luke 16, Rick Lawrence explores Jesus’s most shocking mandate. Shrewd shows readers how Jesus was naturally shrewd in every encounter he had, using leverage such as laughter, generosity, and bluntness to influence a situation for good. As Lawrence reminds readers, salvation wouldn’t exist outside of the holy shrewdness of a loving God. And that’s a scandalous story worth telling.
