About-

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.
