"Kent Van Til's timely analysis of poverty and free markets allows readers to revisit basic economic theories from a distinctly Christian frame of reference. Van Til wrestles with classical economic models through an exhaustive but understandable review of the literature. He then presents a biblical understanding of economics, describing principles and citing authors that, for me, were delightfully new. Whether one agrees with his conclusions or not, this book is a fantastic resource for the current discussion about globalization and the world economic marketplace. I recommend it highly."
Daniel C. Maguire
"For those befuddled by the jargon of theology and economics, this very readable book is a tour de force and a most welcome gem by an outstanding expert in both fields. Like the mission of Jesus, Kent Van Til's book is 'good news for the poor' and a stirring appeal to the consciences of Christians and other persons of goodwill."

"Van Til is thoughtful, dynamic and focused on results. . . [He] helpfully unpacks for neophytes some basic economics. He does this with a 'Calvinist bent,' using significant voices from his own theological tradition, but with a desire to influence a broader audience."
