<p>
A topical study looking at Economics and Society through various biblical texts and Theology of Work articles. How does Christian faith relate to economic life in ways that can potentially advance a more abundant life for all?
</p>
<p>
This study brings a biblical perspective to work and economic life within the overarching mission of fullness of life worked out in the context of fallen individuals, institutions, and nations. Looking to fundamental principles established in the Old Testament, this study focuses on ways Christians can bring biblical perspective in their responses to the realities and responsibilities of economic life. This study also encourages engagement with economic realities without dictating specific answers, positions, politics, or solutions. Rather, it offers six engagement styles or approaches-prophetic, narrative, technical/ethical, policy, participational, and invitational-to enliven and structure conversation around the question:
</p>
<p>
In this abundant life, we as Christians are called to flourish, not just survive. We are invited to enjoy a fullness of life in which there is dignity and purpose that is unconnected to financial state or social station. Called to live the abundant life in a fallen world, we face the reality of economic disparity and the many issues it presents. Jesus observed, "The poor you will always have with you" (Matt. 26:11), stating a fact we cannot escape. But we can make a difference. As workplace Christians, we are committed to God's life-giving mission amid life-denying situations. We seek opportunities for active and constructive engagement with our world.

<p>
These Bible studies are part of The Bible and Your Work Study Series. Each book contains Scripture references, thought-provoking questions, and prayers to help you explore what the Bible says about work and apply it to your life in positive, practical ways. The lessons in each chapter are designed for thirty-minute lunch breaks, although they can be used in other formats as well.
