Re-posted: Book: Foundations of Economics: A Christian View

“Professors at Christian colleges and universities are mostly left to supplement one of the standard works with articles from an explicitly Christian perspective. Many of these materials do not advocate Biblical principles in the area of the state and economic policy but merely offer interventionism dressed up in Christian language.”

“In Foundations of Economics, I provide a Christian justification for economics as a discipline, and show how certain relevant Christian doctrines impact both how we do economic analysis and how we analyze economic policy. Economics is important because of the cultural mandate. It is really about how humans act to solve one of mankind’s greatest dilemmas: how do we fulfill our commission to work, fill, rule, and keep creation in a fallen world of aggravated scarcity without either starving to death or killing one another?”  Shawn Ritenour
