Product Description

The Bible deals with all aspects of life indivisibly. In the last generation biblical scholars broadened the usual focus on religious issues with more attention to the "social world" of biblical texts. Much less attention was given to economic issues reflected in the Bible. And biblical scholars did not make the limited amount of research on economic issues in the Bible generally accessible to educated readers, clergy and lay. This book does just that, allowing pastors, students, and interested laity to form an understanding about the economics of the Bible and its clarion call for economic justice for all, an issue that is sure to resonate during today's trying economic times. Questions for discussion and suggestions for further reading are included in this volume-a work that will spark lively conversation.

Endorsements

“Dr. Horsley gives us insight we didn’t receive in seminary: that the history of Jesus’ ministry and early Christianity has far reaching implications for the economic dislocation and class disparity that existed in that time, but has equally far-reaching implications for what we are experiencing today.” —Dr. David Wilkinson, Senior Pastor, St. Francis in the Foothills United Methodist Church, Tucson, Arizona.
