Economics in the Bible

From front to back, the Bible is a book that is fundamentally concerned with how we live in this world. In the Bible, there is no disconnection between our material lives and our spiritual lives. How we live in this world – especially our economic lives – is a central component of all the big Biblical themes, such as sin, salvation, the people of God, worship, mission, evangelism, justice and poverty. The good news that Jesus talked about cannot be fully good until we rediscover these parts of his message.
