Ever wondered how to pay the bills? Felt the world is unfair in economic rewards? Been indecisive about investing wisely? These types of economic questions are addressed in Economic Parables.
Listening directly to Jesus’ words, readers are invited to reflect on a number of economic parables to understand life in a globalized economy. Some of the answers will be surprising, in part because Jesus was a more sophisticated economist than he is given credit for by the modern world. Many economic problems and decisions can be viewed in light of the gospel.
