We live in a world full of economic troubles.
Families struggle to make ends meet, organizations struggle to make payroll, and societies struggle to deal with generational poverty and rampant debt. Only by recovering a theological view of economics can we hope to think faithfully about our economic challenges. Exploring principles outlined in Scripture and economic thought throughout church history, this book lifts our eyes to a higher reality that lies behind economic systems, theory, and policy so we can wisely steward the world that God has given us.
