Description

This book argues that a biblically-rooted account of justice in economic life has three great strengths as opposed to the confusing disarray of views evident in the secular world. First, it is harmonious: the various strands of a scriptural perspective on economic justice are clearly woven together and they find their unity in the person of the God. Secondly, it is substantial: able to engage thoroughly and critically with leading secular perspectives. Thirdly, it is contemporary: applying in powerful and relevant ways to current economic issues in our globalized world. This book indicates how a biblical understanding of production and exchange applies to contemporary topics such as the relationships between borrowers and lenders and the use of monopoly power.


Extra Descriptions

"There is no shared understanding of economic justice. That is one of the central claims of this book. Although the language of 'economic justice' is used right across the political spectrum today, there is no consensus about what it means. Secular perspectives are in deep and confusing disarray. This is of little help to the poor or rich." "Can the Bible do better? Most certainly, according to this book. It argues that a biblically-rooted account of justice in economic life has three great strengths. Whereas secular approaches tend to focus either on justice in production and exchange ('free trade' versus 'fair trade') or justice in distribution (equality versus freedom), a biblically-rooted account shows that both of these aspects are central to economic justice. The book indicates how this understanding applies to contemporary topics such as the relationships between borrowers and lenders, and the use of monopoly power."--BOOK JACKET.
