Combining biblical insights, scholarly research and common sense in this hard-hitting economic treatise, James P. Gills, M.D. and Ronald H. Nash, Ph.D., expose current systems threatening true liberty and prosperity. Anyone looking for a balanced review of current world economic systems and the long term consequences of popular trends will find this to be a clear, concise analysis.

In these confusing days of economic coercion for the sake of security, Gills and Nash present compelling conclusions that call for an informed Christian response to those who govern worldwide. Readers are shown the benefits and liabilities of life in a free-market capitalist, socialist or interventionist society.

The authors also evaluate the long-term effects of each system and help readers come to terms with how God intends people to live-with responsibility and gratitude. This timely study encourages readers to examine their own personal values in light of God's Word, and to accept the challenge of removing whatever prevents them and others from enjoying godly prosperity and freedom.

Concerned citizens cannot afford to miss this urgent message-America's future hangs in the balance! "A solid mix of biblical wisdom and common sense." -Chuck Colson
