Item Description...
At once an introduction to global economics and a Christian ethical examination of it, Free People looks at one of the most pressing challenges facing followers of Jesus today. How does one love God and neighbor while enmeshed in a globalized economy, where our lives are networked with and impact the lives of people all around the world? Written in a highly readable style, this book defines global economics in terms a non-economist can appreciate, and describes how the global economy dominates people---from sweatshop workers in Bangladesh, to coffee farmers in Central America, to citizens of northern democracies. The second half of the book offers a fresh look at biblical insights on wealth and its usage, and at the New Testament concept of "principalities and powers." Finally, Free People suggests ways for Christians to live "humanly" in these times, by looking at the lives of specific people who---in simple, practical ways---resist the dehumanizing power of global economics.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Fresh Perspective  Oct 26, 2005
Free People will bring a fresh perspective to your view of global economics. While this perspective may be as old as the Bible, Tricia Gates Brown makes it fresh by thoughtfully weaving together the teachings of both the Old and New Testaments to raise our awareness of how we should live in an increasingly globalized world. While I'm not an Old Testament scholar, Brown's writing challenged many of my long held understandings and opened my eyes to the possibilities of a better and fairer world.
Free People: A Christian Response to Global Economics  Jun 21, 2004
Peter Illyn, Executive Director of Restoring Eden:
In Free People: A Christian Response to Global Economics, Tricia Gates Brown weaves together such complex concepts as global economics, social justice and Christian theology in a way that is understandable and user-friendly. Contrary to the trend to separate politics from faith, the author shows they are interrelated and symbiotic.

Brown's theological descriptions of 'powers and principalities' as discussed in the Pauline writings, opened my eyes to the dangers of a global consumer society-hell-bent on economic growth without regard to justice, mercy and humility, and to the church's implicit acceptance of it as God's plan. Brown explains and reveals the history, relationships and functions of organizations which had previously been mere acronyms to me-WTO, WB, IMF and NAFTA, and shows how these institutions and agreements have created a world in which 'free markets' are prioritized above 'free people.'

I was also enlightened by Brown's understanding of the indigenous worldview-the indigenous sense of connectedness to the land, their culture and their history. She was able to articulate cultural patterns I had seen in my work with tribes in Alaska and Papua New Guinea, but had not found a way to articulate.

Though revealing, from a Christian perspective, the dangerous path of global economics, Free People sounds a strong message of hope and redemption. Free People is one of those rare books that causes the reader to see the world differently.
