Biblical Economics encourages preachers, teachers, and all who advocate greater social justice to challenge today's prevailing economic ideology that promotes greed and consumerism over the common good. This book views today's national and global economic issues through the lens of biblical faith to argue that biblical values are the foundation of a just, global economy. Although Jesus spoke at great lengths about money and possessions, relatively few congregations engage in a dialogue on the crucial public policies that impact our shared global future. Biblical Economics attempts to change this. By confronting several economic myths with the economic realities and values inherent to the Judeo-Christian faith, this timely work presents a common ground between our market-based economy and biblical-based policies and addresses various unmet human needs and social priorities.
