Theology and Economics - Lesson 1
Why connect theology and economics?
We need to connect these two because lives of Christ followers should manifest the Gospel, making it tangible and visible. In addition to personal holiness, we need to reach beyond ourselves and have an impact on the world around us.
Christians are called to live out God’s creation purposes and be signposts of the glorious future to come. That includes activities like religious works, charity, and volunteering, but these take up only a small fraction of our lives; discipleship must be a whole-life endeavor. If we want to follow God’s call and live into our true identity as his stewards, we have to integrate our faith with the spheres of life in which we invest most of our time: work and the economy.
This course, taught by Dr. Greg Forster will enable you to think clearly about these two issues, their relationship to each other and to all of life.
