About "Christians in An Age of Wealth (Biblical Theology For Life Series)"
Biblical scholar Craig Blomberg surveys relevant passages from both the Old and New Testaments on the subject of possessions, the place and purpose of wealth, and the Christian way to demonstrate the gospel through our approach to material blessings. Without denying the good created purpose of wealth, both testaments warn us about the idolatry that loving our own wealth or coveting another's can generate. Christians must be aware of and safeguard against the dangers that abusing material wealth can produce. Blomberg explains the biblical teaching that when we give away generous and sacrificial amounts to those in need, we participate in God's original good design for abundance and demonstrate the active love of Christ. As part of the Biblical Theology for Life Series, this book provides pastors, teachers, and lay learners with first-rate biblical study while at the same time addressing the practical concerns of contemporary ministry. Christians in an Age of Wealth encourages and challenges readers to embrace a fully biblical perspective on wealth.
