Missional Economics : Biblical Justice and Christian Formation, Paperback / softback Book

Missional Economics : Biblical Justice and Christian Formation Paperback / softback

Part of the The Gospel and Our Culture Series (GOCS) series

Description

American Christians today, says Michael Barram, have a significant blind spot when it comes to economic matters in the Bible.

In this book Barram reads biblical texts related to matters of money, wealth, and poverty through a missional lens, showing how they function to transform our economic reasoning.

Barram searches for insight into God's purposes for economic justice by exploring what it might look like to think and act in life-giving ways in the face of contemporary economic orthodoxies.

The Bible repeatedly tells us how to treat the poor and marginalised, Barram says, and faithful Christians cannot but reflect carefully and concretely on such concerns.

Written in an accessible style, this biblically-rooted study reflects years of research and teaching on social and economic justice in the Bible and will prove useful for lay readers, preachers, teachers, students, and scholars.
