Review

Leading voices in the new discussion of theology and economy advance the conversation beyond outworn dichotomies and intellectual deadlocks with grace and charity. Tracing the contours of a robustly theological economy, Long and Fox find resources of hope beyond the depredations of the current economic order in the gift of the riches of Christian doctrine and practice. --Daniel M. Bell, Jr., Associate Professor of Theological Ethics, Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary

No-one succeeds so well as Stephen Long in showing that Liberal Capitalism, like Communism and Fascism, is an ideology that is incompatible with the traditions of Christian faith and the best theology. Inspiringly and bravely, he also starts to sketch out a new alternative form of Gift Economy. Long and his co-writer Nancy Fox will be amongst the foremost pioneers who are already guiding us in the right direction. --John Milbank, Research Professor of Religion, Politics and Ethics, University of Nottingham

Most scholars working at the intersection of theology and economics pride themselves on a "realistic" affirmation of capitalism and thus baptize the realities of the market. But this is usually a cover for a lack of imagination. Here, Long contests the unimaginative proposals of Novak, Stackhouse, Tanner, and others by exhibiting a nimble and faithful theological imagination that is free to envision economics otherwise. Eschewing the binary logic that characterizes both conservative and liberation perspectives, Long offers a unique redeeming vision of the "dismal science." --James K.A. Smith, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Calvin College
