Here’s a series that looks at the topic of Economics form a Biblical worldview.  With some of the national conversations some of the issues has an economic dimension so its impotent to see what implications from Scripture with things economics; in fact I think have a biblical worldview of economics checks some of the extreme ideologies out there today with a study with nuances.  The lectures are downloadable as MP3s.  I think you might be edified with this.

Want to read a book to understand a biblical worldview concerning the issues and topics brought up in the name of social justice?  This book looks at contemporary beliefs under the web of “social justice” and explains to readers why some the agendas are problematic logically in terms of internally within the advocates’ own beliefs, factually with economics and historical considerations and also biblically.  The work is academic without being dry and I appreciate that the author was nuanced in his writing such as pointing out one as a Christian should have concern for the poor but we must also equally as well be concern about the means to help the poor.  I appreciated that the content in this book did not have a single attack on a person’s character which is so different than today’s politics; instead the content but focused on the issues.  The book was written by the late Ronald Nash which sadly I wished more Christians today would know more about.  Nash is a capable Christian theologian, philosopher, apologist and political and economic thinker who was a two term advisor to the United States’ Civil Rights Commission.  This book certainly didn’t disappoint and was very helpful.

Have you notice a redefinition of “justice” today among those who are advocates of Social Justice?  Even if you think this doesn’t interests you it is definitely affecting you and costing you directly and indirectly today by the actions of its advocate.  These ideas though are nothing new and over the decades of ministry in college campuses I see these ideas discussed in Academia is now being yelled out aloud literally and the consequences being reaped on the streets of America in 2020.  This book was originally published in 1999 but reading this in 2020 I was blown away how relevant it is twenty one years later.  The observations that the author made and also his refutations is very powerful and I love how factual and data driven the author is.  This is probably the most important book I read in 2020 and I’m surprised why more people don’t know about this book.  Out of the six books I have read from author Thomas Sowell this to me is one of the best book I have read from him and it is not only compelling but reading this book is a training session of how to think soundly in the realm of social sciences, economics and discussions about what is justice.
