Product Description

Product Description

Engaging Economics exposes economic dimensions of the theology of the early Jesus movement, as reflected both in the texts of the New Testament and in the reception of those texts within the patristic era. Under these two considerations, the contributors demonstrate that an economic dimension was an integral component of this early movement and indicate how, in later centuries, that economic dimension was either further developed or ignored altogether.

they represented a cross-section of urban society and included some individuals of relatively high wealth and status.' &quote;

The economic aspect of Revelation's critique of Roman imperial power is a vital part of the work as a whole. It is, moreover, an integrated aspect of John's theology of the church in union with Christ. For this reason it is not to be judged primarily as an attack on Rome so much as a challenge to a potentially complicit church. &quote;

Proper appreciation of this theological context allows us to move beyond simplistic characterizations of John's economic polemic as Marxist27 or anti-globalized and to see it as an outworking of a nuanced Christian eschatology, with the changed values and social responsibilities that ought to proceed from it.28 &quote;
