Editorial Reviews

Review

'Theologians wanting to start the journey about what it means to think Christianly about economic issues will find this text a useful introduction. Protestants, unfamiliar with Catholic teaching on economics, will benefit from the mature reflection exhibited by the Catholic Church's long ecclesiastical memory. The authors deftly avoid controversies that presently divide Christians into difference communions. . . the authors are to be commended for their lucid call for theologians to engage in the complex world of money and markets.' --- Stephen M. Vantassel, Journal of Markets & Morality

`Theologians and economists are both enormously influential. Unfortunately, they tend to misunderstand, ignore, talk past, and distrust one another. Harper and Gregg aim to solve this problem by "demonstrating that meaningful conversation between the disciplines is both possible and rewarding." They are too humble. The ten essays in this collection show that this conversation is immensely rewarding. . . Highly recommended.' --- R.M. Whaples, Choice

`Christian Theology and Market Economics is a welcome and important contribution to the dialogue between serious Christian thinking and market economics.' --- Bishop Robert Forsyth, Policy
