CHRISTIANS AND ECONOMICS: A Biblical Point of View

Front Cover
Christian Publishing House, Jul 27, 2016 - Business & Economics - 136 pages

 Economics affects our daily lives, and Christians need to think about how to apply biblical principles to money, investment, borrowing, and spending. They also need to understand the free enterprise system and know how to defend capitalism.


Chapters in this book not only look at broad economic principles, but a section of the book is devoted to the challenges we face in the 21st century from globalization and tough economic times. A section of the book also provides an in-depth look at other important social and economic issues (gambling, welfare) that we face every day.

 

Some questions that Anderson will answer are: What does the Bible say about economics? How should Christians think about work? How should the government deal with poverty? Is America going broke? How can we find financial security? Are we headed down the road to serfdom? How are we affected by materialism and consumerism?
