Product Description

What does the good news of Jesus mean for economics? It's easy to become so focused on the gospel's spiritual significance that we forget it has physical, real-world implications. Tom Nelson in The Economics of Neighborly Love combines biblical study, economic theory, and practical advice to give congregations and leaders a more complex and nuanced understanding of poverty—and what to do about it. Nelson presents a vision for church ministry that works toward the flourishing of the local community, starting with its poorest and most marginalized members.

Publisher's Description

  • 2017 The Gospel Coalition Book Award
What does the good news of Jesus mean for economics? Too often, Christian teaching and ministry have focused only on the gospel's spiritual significance and ignored its physical, real-world ramifications. But loving our neighbor well has direct economic implications, and in our diverse and stratified society we need to grapple with them now more than ever. In The Economics of Neighborly Love pastor Tom Nelson sets out to address this problem. Marrying biblical study, economic theory, and practical advice, he presents a vision for church ministry that works toward the flourishing of the local community, beginning with its poorest and most marginalized members. Nelson resists oversimplification and pushes us toward more complex and nuanced understandings of wealth and poverty. If we confess the gospel of Jesus, he insists, we must contend anew with its implications for the well-being of our local communities. Together we can grow in both compassion and capacity.

Editorial Reviews

"With unqualified joy and respect, I affirm Pastor Tom and his partners are the real deal."
"Too often, Christian teaching and ministry have focused only on the gospel's spiritual significance and ignored its physical, real-world ramifications. In The Economics of Neighborly Love, Nelson sets out to address this problem. Marrying biblical study to economic theory and practical advice, he presents a vision for church ministry that works toward the flourishing of the local community, beginning with its poorest and most marginalized members. He encourages readers to grow in both compassion and capacity."
" The Economics of Neighborly Love will surely encourage more pastors to 'take seriously the profound stewardship of nurturing both Christian compassion and economic capacity."
"Buy this book for your pastor. Most churches should own at least one copy. With any luck it will end up in your church library and possibly form the basis of a small group study."
