This book argues that a biblically-rooted account of justice in economic life has three great strengths as opposed to the confusing disarray of views evident in the secular world. First, it is harmonious: the various strands of a scriptural perspective on economic justice are clearly woven together and they find their unity in the person of the God. Secondly, it is substantial: able to engage thoroughly and critically with leading secular perspectives. Thirdly, it is contemporary: applying in powerful and relevant ways to current economic issues in our globalized world. This book indicates how a biblical understanding of production and exchange applies to contemporary topics such as the relationships between borrowers and lenders and the use of monopoly power.
