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.
