Description

"Here is economic wisdom for humans with habits and desires, immersed in patterns and practices. Here is a model of economic discipleship that doesn't just tell you what to think but how to practically live in an economy of the kingdom. Here is a book that refuses idealism but is fueled by resurrection hope. But you can't pull this off on your own, so buy copies for your family, friends, and congregation."--James K. A. Smith, professor of philosophy at Calvin College; author of You Are What You Love

"The authors show how biblical mandates work justice and equality in the real world. Their testimonies, grown out of their own experiences, will be life-giving for any reader who cares about economic neighborliness."--Walter Brueggemann, professor emeritus at Columbia Theological Seminary; author of The Prophetic Imagination

"This is a powerfully practical book."--Joel Belz, founder of WORLD magazine

"This book is good--really good. I found myself thinking differently about the economy, the marketplace, the kingdom of God, his Word, and even why God put me here."--Henry Kaestner, managing principal of Sovereign's Capital; cofounder and former CEO of Bandwidth

"This book is an incredibly helpful tool for all Christians who desire to live a countercultural life for the common good, especially as it relates to their money and resources."--Gabe Lyons, coauthor of Good Faith; founder of Q
