A Weblog Dedicated to the Discussion of the Christian Faith and 21st Century Life ___ I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

Calmly Considered: Economics, the New Testament, and the 21st Century
On this first installment of a new monthly series entitled, "Calmly Considered," Allan Bevere and Michael Kruse discuss the economic context of the New Testament and how it does and does not inform our current economic world today. We also ask the questions, "Was Jesus a socialist? A Capitalist?" We utilize in our discussion a new book by Peter Oakes, Empire, Economics, and the New Testament.
