Thinking Theologically with Money (DMIN519-CW)
How should Christians think about wealth and resources, production and consumption as the daily environment for our lives? What are the resources in Scripture and theological tradition that can provide some guidance for us as we navigate the increasingly complex territory of our participation in local, national, and global economies? This course will explore readings in the field of theology and economics, both classical and contemporary. We will consider the ways in which our thinking about God, the commonwealth of the created world, and ourselves as producers and consumers in this world together create a theological vision that can inform our Christian ethics, ministry, and public theology.
