Reviews

“The work-as-a-whole concludes with: an editorial summation, selective bibliography, index, and notes on the contributors that afford brief introductions to the individual essayists. … the level of specialized jargon in many of the essays probably ensures this book will be of most benefit to professional theologians and economists and to institutions supporting seminaries or graduate economics programs.” (Justin Lillard, Journal of Markets & Morality, Vol. 19 (1), May, 2016)

'This is a stimulating collection of new essays from leading thinkers across different disciplines. It addresses the scope of fruitful dialogue and collaboration between theologians and economists in their pursuit of the common good, providing a valuable and accessible resource for both the general reader and specialist.' - Ian Smith, Senior Lecturer in the School of Economics and Finance, University of St. Andrews, UK
