Would it surprise you to know that New Testament scholars, missiologists, and church-planting authorities cannot agree on how to define tentmaking, whether or not the church should be practicing it today, or even why Paul did it in the first place? It's true.
In Tentmaking, the widespread confusion and overall disagreement within the church regarding Paul's self-support are exposed. Commonly held assumptions are removed from their entrenched positions and myths are debunked. In their place, Tentmaking offers an unadorned yet powerfully convincing presentation of Paul's own self-disclosed reasons for intentionally selecting to support himself in some ministry contexts, but not others.
This well-researched book provides answers to crucial questions that currently surround tentmaking, as well as a practical guide intended to lead to the recovery of biblical tentmaking within the church. Readers who pick up this book should be prepared to embark on an engrossing journey that will reward them with clarity on the often-misunderstood topic of Paul's tentmaking.
