With scholarly passion and pastoral wisdom, tempered by the insight of economists, John Bolt presents a winsome case for how God uses the market economy to meet human needs.Written to raise questions and invite further discussion, Bolt offers a robust Reformed perspective on stewardship, property, capital, and morality. From this, he explores a variety of issues, including the human need for liberty, the challenge of consumerism, concerns about fairness and justice, and evangelicalism’s mixed history in applying Christian compassion in politics and economics.What stands in the way of the human quest for improvement? How does the reality of sin affect the degree to which we can achieve economic shalom today? And despite every good intention, how do we avoid the horrific track record of failed utopias that have spilled oceans of blood and created mountains of misery? Read, learn, and respond as Bolt leads a rousing Reformed discussion of faith, work, and economics....

    Helpful consideration of economic market structures. Not very detailed economically which I suppose is a pro and a con in equal measure! Also a strong American bias which is to be expected.

    I cannot say more or better than what David Kim says in the foreword -" Christians become excited about the gospel in a whole new way... They start to see how their work connects to the flourishing of the city and how the choices they make each day can have important economic implications. They start to realize that the gospel does indeed speak powerfully into the economics of our modern, complex, pluralistic, multi cultural world." Worth every page. A must read.

    This is a fantastic resource. It has opened many pathways for further exploration on the intersection of economics, vocation, and faith.
