Professor James Halteman identifies areas of conflict between Western capitalism and the values of Christ's kingdom. He explores how believers can interact with a secular capitalistic system that has different interests and goals. Drawing from biblical perspectives, Halteman presents a community model of economic decision-making that helps Christians witness to the emerging kingdom of God in their lifestyle and work. Now revised and expanded, this book is stimulating constructive debate among students and others interested in tackling economic policy issues from a biblical approach. Halteman's analysis makes a highly important contribution to the continuing discussion. I recommend this book with enthusiasm. -- Carl Kreider, Dean Emeritus, Goshen College The author is both a professional economist and a practicing disciple. . . . His writing is practical, personal, and professing. It is professional, too. --J. David Richardson, Department of Economics, Syracuse University James Halteman, an economist and educator, is Professor of Business and Economics at Wheaton College. Besides the first edition of this book -- entitled Market Capitalism and Christianity -- he has written a study guide for use with 'Microeconomics and Behavior' by Robert Frank and numerous articles on economics.
