Engaging Economics illuminates, through a series of topical essays, the way the New Testament and its early interpreters understood economic issues theologically, and how they applied that understandings. The contributors conclude that a rich theo-economic understanding existed in the New Testament and that these beliefs were integral to way the Early Church dealt with money. However, they also conclude that, in later centuries, the church, at times, built on these beliefs or, tragically, ignored them.Selected Essay Titles from Engaging EconomicsThe Spirit and the "Other," Satan and the "Self": Economic Ethics as a Consequence of Identity Transformation in Luke-ActsAaron KueckerAgrarian Discourse and the Sayings of Jesus: "Measure for Measure" in Gospel Traditions and Agricultural Practices John KloppenburgThe Economics of Humility: The Rich and the Humble in JamesMariam KamellTertullian on Widows: A North African Appropriation of Pauline Household Economics David White
