One way of looking at the world of economics biblically. . . .
David Arnott and Sergiy Saydometov. Biblical Economic Policy: Ten Scriptural Truths for Fiscal and Monetary Decision-Making. 400p., $16.99, Deep River Books.
What does the Bible say about economics? A lot. . . . In Biblical Economic Policy, Arnott and Saydometov build a biblical framework for analyzing national economic policy that takes on everything from taxes to spending to tariffs to minimum wage. The Bible has something to say about all these critical present-day issues, and this book explains how to apply it to 21st-century policies.
Arnott and Saydometov hold up the mirror of the Bible and ask their fellow Christians, “Is this the way we’re supposed to run a biblical economy?” . . .
Biblical Economic Policy takes the macroeconomic view and analyzes how well America’s economic policies align with biblical principles.
This book tackles difficult present-day economic policies, including taxes, spending, national debt, interest rates, and money supply.
Written with sound biblical grounding, in accessible language, Biblical Economic Policy will turn the common reader into a biblical economic analyst.
I’ll have to check this one out. I’ve read some of Gary North on Biblical economics, but these authors are new to me. Alas, we have a shortage of Biblical economists. (I recently wrote a book of my own about Taxation and Ethics–but that book was based upon finding a common ethical framework for Americans of all kinds, instead of a Biblical investigation for Christians.)
