Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

Engaging Economics exposes economic dimensions of the theology of the early Jesus movement, as reflected both in the texts of the New Testament and in the reception of those texts within the patristic era. Under these two considerations, the contributors demonstrate that an economic dimension was an integral component of this early movement and indicate how, in later centuries, that economic dimension was either further developed or ignored altogether.
