Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The great polymath Bernard Lonergan is said to have declared, "If you care about the poor, study economic theory!" Kathryn Tanner has put forward a thesis on macroeconomic matters that hits hard, whether you are a person of faith or not. Should be required reading at the major business schools.

5.0 out of 5 stars Theological Economy 16 Sept. 2005
By Tedd Steele - Published on
Tanner develops the idea of a theological economy that is centered around the concept of gift. She begins by finding fault with other theological treatments of economics and suggesting that money and grace are formaly related. She notes also that the attainment of goods is not a zero-sum proposition. She then suggests that a theological economy of gift should include the concepts of unconditional giving, universal giving, and non-competition within the community. This stands in contrast with critiques of capitalism offered by a reading of Locke or gift-exchange theorists. Finally, Tanner suggests practical ways that a theological economy can change the global capitalist economy.

With thorough arguments, Tanner presents an excellent alternative to the current system. Not only that, but she gives concrete steps to make this system relevant. This book should be required reading for those interested in Christian theology and economics.
