Overview

An illuminating book that throws down the gauntlet to those who would capture evangelical Christianity for leftist causes. A free market champion, Nash insists that socialism caricatures capitalism and disadvantages more than it helps the needy. -- Carl F. H. Henry

An excellent presentation of the case for free enterprise ... a deadly indictment of socialism in all its forms ... should be read by all who are interested in the mission of the church as it relates to 'social' justice and especially by those who think the Bible calls for the redistribution of wealth as the epitome of true justice. -- Harold Lindesell

Nash's book is a crest in the new wave of evangelical social thought which is sweeping in. This wave follows the earlier one, which was statist and anti-capitalist in direction, and promises to overtake it. It concentrates more on how wealth is produced than on how it is redistributed and thus should do the poor more good in the long run.... Many offer liberation today and give people tyranny; Nash offers liberation and gives it. -- Clark H. Pinnock

Ronald Nash is widely regarded as one of the premier evangelical philosophers in the world. He is professor of philosophy at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He has taught at a number of other colleges and seminaries, including Western Kentucky University and Reformed Theological Seminary. The author of more than 35 books on philosophy, theology and economics, Dr. Nash is in constant demand as a speaker throughout the world.
