Overview

AT ONCE AN INTRODUCTION TO GLOBAL ECONOMICS AND a Christian ethical examination of it, 'Free People' looks at one of the most pressing challenges facing followers of Jesus today. How does one love God and neighbor while enmeshed in a globalized economy, where our lives are networked with and impact the lives of people all around the world? Written in a highly readable style, this book defines global economics in terms a non-economist can appreciate, and describes how the global economy dominates people - from sweatshop workers in Bangladesh, to coffee farmers in Central America, to citizens of northern democracies. The second half of the book offers a fresh look at biblical insights on wealth and its usage, and at the New Testament concept of principalities and powers. Finally, 'Free People' suggests ways for Christians to live humanly in these times, by looking at the lives of specific people who - in simple, practical ways - resist the dehumanizing power of global economics.
