“Most of the compelling books I know of in current Christian literature are compelling because they dare to deal simply and directly with radical concepts that have become immobilized by shrewdly nuanced ideas and rampant cultural theology. Wilson-Hartgrove has mastered the art of that kind of truth-telling, and there can be no doubt but that God’s Economy is a compelling book.” -- Phyllis Tickle|“Through an examination of money-changing activities ranging from panhandlers to war, God’s Economy challenges the reader to confront Christ’s principle ‘For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.’ A must-read for individuals and groups looking to invest time wisely.” -- Matthew Sleeth|“This is how the Gospel must hit the ground---running! God’s Economy is very brilliant, very timely, and very readable at the same time. This is practical theology and spirituality at its best!” -- [Fr.] Richard Rohr|“This is not the book to read unless you’re looking to change your life---in subtle ways and maybe great ones.” -- Bill McKibben|“This book is full of piercing questions that every serious follower of Jesus must ask. And its answers reflect a breathtaking vision and radical call to action.” -- Ron Sider
From the Back Cover
Are you dissatisfied with the gospel of health and wealth? Health and wealth proponents urge Christians to claim material blessings on earth. Others insist that God's best gifts can't be enjoyed until heaven. The truth of God's intentions, writes acclaimed author Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, is far greater than either perspective suggests. Packed with inspiring stories, God's Economy invites you to step into the good life God intends you to enjoy here and now---not a shrink-wrapped, plastic version of prosperity but a liberating approach to living that leads to genuine and lasting satisfaction. With persuasive enthusiasm, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove draws from Jesus' teachings on money, exploring five tactics for living in God's economy of abundance. Then, he demonstrates how people have practiced these tactics in the past, as well as what these principles can do for you, your family, and your church today. From your human relationships to your spiritual life, this practical guide cuts through the clutter and invites you to discover what can happen when you invest in God's Economy.
