The Steward Investor
Investing God’s Resources
for Eternal Impact
The Steward Investor takes us beyond basic financial principles to where we become fiduciaries who own nothing but manage everything to achieve the redemptive objectives of God, the True Owner. Using scripture and real-world examples, Don helps us discover a different and dynamic way to invest. He identifies scriptures that caution against investment practices that are contrary to God’s design for capital, and points us in a direction that aligns our investments with kingdom of heaven objectives.
He challenges modern temporal financial planning constructs, like maximizing personal financial returns and minimizing personal risk, and leads Christians to optimize positive investment outcomes for all stakeholders, including employees, community, and the planet, for eternity. Don’s own engaging and inspiring journey will challenge readers to change direction with their investments and start their own path toward investing for eternal impact as God’s steward investor.
Q&A video with Don Simmons, where he shares why he wrote The Steward Investor, who it’s written for, and how it could change the world.
This is a book about stewardship on a completely other level than we are used to hearing as Christians. Simmons invites us to see ourselves as “oikonomos” or steward-investors. Many of us who consider ourselves “ordinary Christians” may not think ourselves wealthy, let alone put ourselves in the category of “investor” and may mistakenly feel this book is directed at someone else. But the truth is that we are investors if we’ve got money in the bank and this book has much to say to us.
This small book packs a huge punch! It is a potential game-changer for thousands of Christ-followers who are serious about loving the world in the name of Jesus, and who perceive that the financial resources placed in their care by God are not theirs but His.
