About the Book

To be a servant, in the most basic sense, is to serve someone other than yourself. In the secular arena, the word servant may even have a negative connotation, but what are its implications for those who follow Christ? What does it really mean to be a faithful servant of the Lord, or to have a servant’s heart?

In The Life of Servanthood, Timothy C. Tennent gets to the root of what it means to be a servant by laying a foundation through a distinctly Christian voice and vision. Tennent works through the seemingly paradoxical nature of how Christ’s service brings about justice and salvation to the world. Jesus also provides a model which invites God’s people to imitate him, and therefore embody what redemption looks like for the world. With a theological expertise borne out of experience spanning more than thirty years, Tennent teaches readers what makes Christian servanthood unique and why its power endures as a counter-cultural force.
