Item Description...
God and Business offers a new way of looking at our free enterprise system. Economist Robert Richards explores how business and God interact. Is capitalism grounded in the Bible? What does Christianity say about free enterprise? Can a modern business person look to God for answers to business problems? Richards answers these questions, and more, in his insightful book.

Richards explains:

  • The genius of capitalism as its accommodating the dual nature of humanity both as created in God's image and likeness and as fallen sinners.
  • The great virtue of capitalism as its being the only economic system consistent with the Christian imperative to "love one another."
  • The key attributes of capitalism as liberty, trust, egalitarianism, justice, and hope - the very values embodied in Christianity.
He also discusses several brilliant outcomes of capitalism in the context of Christianity, answering the questions why capitalism leads to enlightened stewardship of all God's creations, how capitalism is the solution to world poverty and hunger, how capitalism directly contributes to the spread of Christianity, and how economic advance is part of Divine order. In his discussion of the ultimate contribution of capitalism to humanity, Richards makes a compelling argument that the corporation is God's greatest instrument for world peace. 558 pages, hardcover from Xulon Press.
